A pre-war 00-18 is the holy grail for many a guitarist; and its comfortable size means it will likely stay around you in whatever play setting you find yourself in. The combination of Adirondack spruce, Honduran mahogany and Ebony is a formula for sonic success; and the scalloped x-bracing that supports it provides for the most resonance. This example has survived 85 years thanks to the repair work listed in the Specs tab (including a neck reset, re-fret, and other repairs in 2024). That being said, it has obviously been well loved in its long life and was worth the extra attention it received.

Comes with modern Martin TKL hard shell case
