1959 Martin D-18L Left handed
Posted on August 08 2019
This rare 1959 Martin D-18L lefty acoustic guitar came through the shop a few years ago. It was a phenomenal sounding guitar and in great condition. I'm always a buyer for vintage Martin guitars but I especially love the D-18 model and even left handed vintage Martins. Please contact me to sell a vintage Martin guitar.
CF Martin & Co hit a home run when they combined their Dreadnought body size with the affordable style 18 level trim and 14 fret neck joint in 1934. It's been in production ever since and is a huge commercial success.
This clean guitar presents as a factory left handed guitar and in fact, is a factory left handed guitar with correct bracing, bridge slot, and nut. It appears to have been originally designated as a right handed guitar but was converted at the factory some time in the early 1960s. It has just had a professional neck reset, bridge reglue, and set up with new saddle. It's a lovely sounding and playing guitar. We've included a cool vintage 1960s Martin case.
