Vintage Martin D-18 Dreadnought Natural 1972


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


What makes this guitar special: A true vintage beauty in great shape that offers a warm, rich tone. Professionally inspected & ready to play upon arrival.

Cosmetic Condition: Wonderful condition for its age with mild play wear - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & light weather checking.

Neck: Nicely rounded mahogany neck with cream side-dots. Rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. Grover Pat Pend tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight, however, the neck angle is such that the action in the upper registers is a bit high. String height at the 12th fret is 3/16" & the saddle is as low as it can go. The guitar is definitely playable, but the action is not what most modern players prefer.

Body: Double-bound dreadnought body in natural finish. Solid spruce top with rosewood bridge. Black pickguard & multi-ring rosette. Solid mahogany back & sides. The end pin is a 1/8" input jack, but there is no pickup inside. Guitar weighs 5 lbs 4.3 oz.

Case: Unoriginal hardshell case included.
