I've decided to sell my 2003 D-18GE. Nearly mint - just a couple of tiny and very shallow dings about 2mm long, one on treble side of top, upper bout, one on lower rib. All the usual stuff - very nice Adirondack top, ebony fingerboard and bridge, scalloped braces, butterbean Waverlies. 1 3/4" at nut. Usual green-lined TKL case in excellent condition. These very rarely come up in the UK - I looked for one for a long while. Really wonderful sound, just beginning to open up nicely. Strong, clear trebles, plus what you would expect from the bottom end. A classic dreadnought! Much as I like it, though, I can't really get on with the body size - all my other guitars are OMs or 12-fretters.
These listed new in the USA at $3,949.00. This is offered at an attractive price.Specification details:
Dreadnought body with solid Adirondack spruce top, scalloped 5/16" Golden Era bracing, solid genuine mahogany back and sides, and mahogany blocks with a dovetail neck joint produce a mellow, rich tone as clear and warm as any Martin ever. V-shaped neck for long-playing comfort features a fossil ivory nut and solid ebony fingerboard. Looks are enhanced by Old Style 18 abalone fretboard inlays, Waverly nickel tuners with butterbean knobs, polished gloss finish, Brazilian rosewood headplate with large Golden Era-style logo, and black binding.
Complete with high quality fitted case, in good condition.
