Coming straight out of the time period dominated by the folk revival, this 1963 Martin 00-18 is a vintage gem. Later in the decade and into the 70s Martin would ramp up production, in the process making a lot of changes that many feel were to the detriment of their guitars. But guitars made in this early '60s share more in common with those made in the '40s and '50s, including a smaller bridgeplate, hide glue construction, and tortoise binding and pickguard. As a result, this lightweight 00-18 is delight to play. The low action and short scale make for easy fretting and barre chords, and the clean, woody mahogany tone suits any genre.

This guitar has been well-maintained, appears to be all original, with one recently repaired crack and some minor marks in the finish. An approachable entry point for anyone looking to get into the vintage market!
