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),

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.

 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.
