Martin O-18 1940 Shade Top

Price: $4500.00

Condition: very good

Case: original soft

1940 Martin 0-18, Adirondack Spruce top, Ebony fingerboard, scalloped braces, Schatten HFN Active pickup installed.

Neck reset, refret, replacement pickguard, Maple bridgeplate & Ebony bridge(all repairs I believe to have been done by Mike Lennon, formerly of the Apprentice Shop in Nashville).

The top of this guitar appears to have been professionally refinished in nitro lacquer decades ago, with a beautiful vintage patina, light finish checking and some honest play wear....... we cannot say if it was originally a shaded finish.

 Overall in very good condition - it plays exceptionally well & sounds great with a sweet, touch-sensitive balanced tone.  

Includes original(?, or at least era-correct) soft case.
