Price : US $1,250.
I am the original owner of this 2003 Martin D-18, which has spent most of it's existence sharing a hardshell case with a Planet Waves Humidifier. When it has been played, it was at home only in a non smoking environment and only cleaned with a damp cloth(water only). The clarity, tone, volume, and build quality that this Martin exhibits is why they have such a stellar reputaton. The fret wear on this acoustic is very slight to minimal, and from the photos the finish and color are exceptional. The pick guard has the usual light scratches that you will find in a acoustic with light to below average usage.
The two minor flaws that I will describe are located on the last two photos. The second to last pic shows some clear coat chipping to the upper inside edge, which was caused by a shirt zipper. I never bothered to have it fixed because it is not really noticable, and does not go down to the finish. If it was something that you could not live with, a qualified acoustic luthier could repair it without issue. The second flaw located on the last photo is a small divit(similar to a ink pen divit) located behind/aft the pick guard. This occurred as a result of the case closing as I was attempting to put the guitar back in, and one of the latches came into contact causing the small divit. This mark is barely noticable, so don't confuse it with the two reflections that appear on the upper part of the photo.
The Martin Hardshell Case is in great condition(No cracks, bashes, bends, or
