(USED) Just in on consignment, a custom Martin 000-18 Golden Era, in the popular ambertone finish. The Golden Era guitars predated the Authentic models, and at the time were about the most faithful builds to the original pre-war Martin specs.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with only a few very faint pick marks on the top (probably buff-able) and no fret wear. It has a wide-grained Adirondack spruce top, mahogany back and sides, tortoise binding and b/w/b top purfling. The fingerboard is ebony, with pearl dot inlays. Short 24.9" scale length, with 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle, and a modified V neck. The saddle is nice and tall, and the guitar has great action and playability.
This guitar got a few upgrades from the Martin factory shortly after it was completed: tuners were upgraded to Waverly, the pins were swapped out and the saddle was slotted. This guitar includes the original hard case. We do not have the original build sheet for this instrument, sorry.
AMW Price: $3,499 (ON CONSIGNMENT, NO TRADES!)
