Martin 5-18 Guitar, 1951 (used)

$ 1,199.00
Smallest size guitar in the Martin catalog! This one made in 1951 - spruce top, mahogany back & sides (grain is very subtle & unique). May have been refinished outside of the Martin factory. The previous owner purchased it used in 1971; the flamenco pickguard and its current finish were already present. Some cosmetic wear on top, but no structural issues - plays well. This is a very lightweight instrument, and though the tonality is not excessively bright for the size of the body, it has a fair amount of volume and projection. It would be an ideal travel guitar for a more discerning player.  A 1 5/8" nut width makes a much more comfortable strummer than fingerpicking guitar. Hard case included.
