Hakaranda fretboard & bridge, small size but excellent vintage sound! Martin 1953 0-18 is now in stock!
The 0 (single O) size was introduced in 1854 and is the oldest model among the current Martin representative models.
It is now well established as a small guitar, but at that time it was the largest size. The size of the guitar increased from there to 00 and 000, and the history can be seen that the company wanted to increase the volume.
The 0-18 made in 1953 is in stock this time. 650 pieces were produced in that year!
The condition is so beautiful that it is hard to believe that it is almost 70 years old.
There is a strap pin attached to the heel of the neck, an end pin attached, and a scratch on the side of the pickguard that does not penetrate to the inside, but is only on the surface.
The nut/saddle/fretboard were probably replaced prior to arrival.
The neck remains straight and the string height has been adjusted at 2.2mm on the 6th string side and 2.0mm on the 1st string side at our store, and is in perfect playing condition.
Although it is a small size nowadays, the long saddle and original paint job give it an open and crisp sound, and it can be surprisingly loud depending on the picking.
Of course, even if you play quietly, you can enjoy the warm sound unique to high-quality mahogany.
It is easy to hold, and you will find yourself playing it in your hand, making it an indispensable guitar.
Comes with a 5-year adjustment warranty.
