This incredible, early build from legendary pre-war style extraordinaire Jim Merrill encapsulates nigh-on each key detail that made its ancestors such sought after instruments. 

Built to classic, golden era dreadnought specifications, this C-18 boasts a very rare, stunning 'striped' Honduran Mahogany back and sides paired with a delightful Adirondack Spruce top that has attained a truly wonderful patina over the years. 

The neck has the distinctive '30s V shape carve, and coupled with the wide saddle and meticulous construction and detailing makes for a punchy and characterful workhorse of a guitar.
