The item for bid is a 1973 Martin D-18 . It is in very good condition. The guitar shows normal surface wear and has a light insignificant crack on one side (see picture). The crack is almost invisible and is not structurally important.  This instrument is very playable with no repair necessary.  It would be easily repaired if you choose to do so.  It does not affect the playability or sound of the guitar at all.  This guitar has the great sound that is typical of a Martin.  Truss is straight, fretboard is good. Saddle and neck are good.  Top and back are solid with sound joints.  The finish is beautiful and reflective. Back shows normal stress marks probably made by players beltbuckle.

Pickguard is peeling, which is a common flaw in this particular model of Martin.  It does not affect sound or playability and only serves to authenticate the Martin. (This can be verified by other Martin owners/dealers.)

This Martin has been owned for 30 plus years by me and was played mostly in bars and music halls.  I have taken good care of it.  Guitar ships with authentic Martin hardshell case. Case shows minor wear but is sound and is lined with blue velvet. Case has slight imperfection but can be easily replaired by replacing hinge.

This is a great purchase for a collector or musician.  This guitar will provide years of enjoyment and quality music, not to mention the status of owning a Martin.
