-> On hold for the time being for a prospective buyer...will ping it off again if it's a no go <-
From an early batch of the legendary Golden Era series, this is Martin's 000-18 Golden Era reproduction of the 1937 era 000 model. Neck is the original one piece mahogany (instead of the later edition with 'wings' on the headstock and 'select hardwood' (i.e. before the mahogany ran out)
Personal handover preferred in Kent/ Sussex/ Central London
No trades thanks.
Natural 'amber' finish
Nickel vintage style tuners
Soft V neck profile
Adirondack spruce top
This is a fabulous guitar. Ungigged - it's only ever been used for writing and recording.
Only selling as I'm primarily a bass player and need an upright bass.
Based in Kent and London I would rather meet and hand it over in the South East M25 etc
