Used Martin D18 1995 Golden Era

Pre-owned Martin D18 1995 Golden Era. Hard Case included. Top shows a crack in the center of the guitar to the bridge.  Rosette/sound hole shows a small split coming from the fretboard. Bridge is slightly lifting but in a way that shouldn't cause any concern. Sides have a fair amount of minor dings and scratches.  There's checking along the binding. The tortoise shell around the endpin is slightly raising up toward the top of the guitar.  The back of the guitar shows a fair amount of buckle rash and one small crack of an 1.5 inches towards the upper back (see pictures). Headstock has some dings and dents around the corners. Frets show normal wear around open chords, mostly on the B string and high E string. Action is set at 6/64ths on the high E and 7/64ths on the low E string.  Neck relief is .020.

Many features copied directly from a 1937 D-18, including: original mahogany stain color, black binding, small abalone dot pattern on neck, Brazilian rosewood headplate with old-style decal, hot stamp burned in reinforcing center strip, cloth strips on sides, 1 3/4" V-neck, 2-5/16" spacing at bridge, long bone saddle, bone nut, chrome vintage-style tuners; other features similar to later D-18V.
