 All right folks, due to a severe cash crunch, some long time keepers
are hitting the auction block.  Please check my other auctions for some
very collectible, killer guitars.  Now for your consideration, a 1954 Martin 0-18, Serial Number 136237.  Mahogany back and sides, Spruce top, Rosewood fingerboard.  Starts at a grand with no reserve folks. 

In my opinion the tuners and nut are original.  It has a newer professionally compensated bone saddle and non-original bridge pins.  Frets show decent wear, but still quite playable - quite possibly original given this thing's great condition. The fingerboard definitely has some wear in the first positions, but they've never bothered me.  I don't believe the neck has ever been reset, and the action is just plain perfect.  This thing chimes like a bell - huge volume and really complex overtones.  Great for fingerstyle and really spanky with a pick.  For what these things go for, they are a huge bargain for a vintage Martin tone.  This guitar appears to have been re-lacquered at some point in it's career, probably only on the sides and back.  It has some 'roll points' where it was over applied.  This is a very minor thing which is not really noticeable, and just plain impossible to photograph, but they are there.  There are the usual dings and gouges on a 50-plus year old instrument, but it's really in pretty great shape.  Unfortunately, the original case was long gone when I got this guitar.  It will ship
