One of the better Golden Era guitars we’ve played. Huge, deep, rich tone with quick response and unlimited power! This one can get up and run with the big boys!
This is a 1934 Martin Golden Era D-18 built in 2004. The condition is very good. Just some minor play wear as you’d expect but no issues. The setup is great as is (we do a professional setup before shipping as well) and it plays easy and responds to even the slightest pick attack. The Golden Era series has long been a favorite of mine due to not only the sound and playability, but also because of the true vintage appointments making it so much more of an authentic pre war replica than most of the other Martin D-18 models. The one thing some people prefer about the Golden Era even over the true “Authentic” series Martin produces is the adjustable truss rod in the neck of the Golden Era where the Authentic has none. Just an incredibly good guitar. Hard to find a better one.
