1946 Martin 00-18- Perfect, Original, Few Scratches

Photo for Ad 189273

A beautiful example. While not quite a ‘Case queen”, it has been babied and cared for. Less than the usual crop of scratches and marks. The instrument has original finish everywhere, original full-height bridge, original pick guard, bridge plate. No cracks! Top is beautiful bearclaw spruce. Relatively fat neck, as these 1946’s tend to have.

This instrument had a recent neck reset from Brothers Music in Wind Gap, PA. Original bridge, original everything except the saddle from the neck set. The frets look very clean- considering the lack of playwear, they could be original as well. The inside and bridge plate look great. Once again, no cracks.

Ships in a modern, heavy-duty hardshell case in almost-new condition. I also have another, not-as-nice hardshell 00-18 case I could send instead if you want a break on price.

$9,800.00 includes ground shipping to the lower 48. I'll entertain reasonable offers- no low balling. Three day approval period is fine- buyer pays shipping both ways in case of a return. But…. I don’t expect you to give it back! I wager you’ll be quite happy with this instrument. Feel free to contact me for detailed photos and feel free to ask any questions. I’ll answer to the best of my ability. Thanks.
