Here's a terrific workhorse Martin D-18 from 1964. It's got a few battle scars but that only gives it a story to tell. The playability is excellent with recent neck set and refret so it's ready for another 5+ decades of music. This one is a true CANNON!, very loud and strong. Flatpickers lookout and strummers will love it to...

1964 Martin D-18 - Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Some old Martins just have 'it', that extra little power, zing, whatever you want to call it. Well this is one of those. As Al says, it's one of the loudest we've seen in a while and while it has some miles on it, it's also been cared for and the playability is excellent. If you've been seeking a workhorse Martin that's a great player and a boomer, here you go...." - Paul Heumiller

"This is the loudest guitar I've recorded in a long time. Great for playing in an acoustic band where you need that extra "oomph."" - Al Petteway
