2012 Martin D-18 Lefty

Serial # 1606949. Martin completely redesigned the D-18 for 2012, combining the standard model with the D-18V, and changing up the feel of the neck. From the Vintage series the new D-18 borrows scalloped and forward shifted bracing, ebony fingerboard and bridge, vintage appointments, and toned finish. From the standard series comes the drop-in saddle and low-profile oval neck carve. It's a great instrument and one of the most popular guitars we sell.

This example appears brand-new, but is in fact a previously owned guitar. It's is in mint condition with not even a scratch to note. We've set-it up to our standards, too.

Sitka spruce top with forward shifted scalloped bracing, South American mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge, tortoiseshell plastic bindings and beveled-edge pickguard, bone nut and compensated saddle, vintage style tuning machines, old-style headstock logo, vintage-toned nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Modified low-oval neck with 1-3/4' width at the nut, 25.4' scale, and satin finish.

With original hard shell case
