2005 Merrill C-18 Mahogany/Adirondack (Red)
SOLDAdd to Compare
Jim Merrill’s guitars often sound more vintage than vintage guitars themselves, and that’s right out the gate. Imagine what these guitars will sound like once they’ve opened up for a few years! The 2005 C-18 we’ve got here is a golden opportunity to see just how much a contemporary instrument can sound like its long-lost prewar cousin.Built sturdily but to lightweight specs, this C-18 comes with Mahogany back and sides for a clean low-end presence and Adirondack Spruce top for a bright, punchy middle register and attack. Not surprisingly, this Dreadnought is built with the Bluegrass player in mind, but thanks to trebles which are well-balanced and a bottom E string that is tight and expressive, the C-18 performs beautifully for fingerpicking passages, as well as lightning flatpick sessions. Overall, the voice is muscular, full of vim and vigor, and the bottom-end has enough warmth to warm you on the coldest winter nights.
