Up for sale is my Custom Shop Martin D-18, an instrument built with interface with George Gruhn. I got it at Gruhn in Nashville in May of 2017. It's in pristine condition and comes with a high quality hard case. There are no issues to discuss so let's get to the good part: this is a rare and amazing guitar. The back and sides or made from 100-120 year old sinker mahogany from Costa Rica. Top is straight grained Adirondack spruce. Ebony fingerboard and bridge, abalone dots. 1 3/4" nut width. Waverly tuners. The result, which hit me hard enough that I bought it without having really planned to do so ahead of time, is a guitar which looks awesome and sounds awesome. Bright, deep, sparkly, with bark. Finger picked or with a pick. Bracing and neck profile are from the Golden Age designs. It's a real deal mahogany dreadnaught with a complexity of tone far beyond its build date.

This guitar is up for sale because of other guitar moves I am making. I don't need to sell it, will not entertain low balls, don't want to trade, and it's cash only. It also will be offered on other websites and through word of mouth.

If you're interested, for real, email me, identify yourself as a person, and I can send more pictures.
