2004 Martin D-18GE Golden Era, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany - USED - SOLD



(USED) Martin invented the dreadnought as we know it, but there was a time when they weren't the leader in the pack anymore.  Builders like Santa Cruz, Bourgeois, Collings and a slew of individual luthiers began crafting high-performance instruments inspired by the way Martin did it back in the old days.  Well, Martin took notice, and they decided that it was time to reclaim their legacy.  Thus, the Golden Era series was born.  

This D-18GE from 2004 is nice and light, and features an Adirondack spruce top, scalloped and forward-shifted braces, and genuine Honduran mahogany back and sides.  It has a large modified V neck profile, which definitely contributes to the vintage feel.  1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing at the cut-through saddle.  Ebony fingerboard and bridge.  Waverly tuners. 

Condition is great for its age, with a bit of finish movement around the bindings, most noticeable on the back (see pics) and a couple light scratches on the back.  Minimal fret wear.  Includes hard case.
