Vintage 1948 Martin 0-18 acoustic guitar

 

This clean vintage 1948 Martin 0-18 acoustic guitar came through the shop a few years ago. The single 0 size Martin acoustics measuring about 13.5" wide are my favorite vintage Martin guitars. I'm always a vintage Martin guitar buyer but I especially love the 0-18 guitars. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Martin guitar. 

This 1948 Martin 0-18 has survived in nice condition and ready for the stage, studio, or collection. It came to us in unrepaired condition from the family of the original owner although no documentation to that fact exists. We had Jason Burns (burnsrepair.com) reset the neck, reglue the bridge, glue loose braces, repair a center seam separation, refret the neck, and repair a ~7" crack on the treble side rim. All parts appear to be original except for the frets, saddle, and bridge pins. It's now in excellent playing condition with all the tone, soul, and vibe of a vintage instrument. We're confident you'll love the tone and aesthetic of this 1948 CF Martin & Co 0-18.
