I am selling this vintage Martin for a widow friend.  It was owned by her husband's father.  He was a known artist / musician in the Berkely, California area during the '50's and 60's.  I do not play guitar, but will do my best to describe.  I have taken it to a couple of long time guitar playing friends and they loved the sound even without steel strings.  I also took it to a few shops and spoke with some long time guitar players and repairmen.  This is a vintage Martin 00-18 with serial number 165872.  1959.  The bridge and neck have been redone, although somewhat poorly and from what they could tell, many years ago. The neck tilts somewhat foreward and will have to be reset.  Overall there are the normal dings and scratches that comes with playing a guitar for years. Especially out of a VW bus.  I have shown a close up of the face where the scratching is the worse from the pick.  There is also a picture of the worst ding on the side.  There is a hairline crack on the face and another on the side that runs along the joint of the face and the side.  Even with these defects all who have played or looked it over loved the guitar and it's sound.  Comes in a Martin Hard Shell case with green velvet liner.  Has leather Martin capo and a '60's orange, gold and black strap.  Also has a pickup that was taped to bottom of guitar.  It appears to have original Grover tuners with one missing the nut on the face.  This Martin will need a little work to bring it back to its glory days.  But
