1943 Martin D-18 (Refinish) Guitar

Photo for Ad 117914

Excellent refinish. SN: 85918.

Yes, I do know that most people wouldn't attach a description of "excellent" with a refinished instrument... but this one is quite nice.
Usually the first thing you’ll hear when people mention a refinished guitar is something about what a shame it is and how the sound must be compromised, etc

Well... I am here to say that some people can do it very badly and hurt the dimension of the woods (sanding too much, or lacquer applied too thick, etc). But " some people can take a great instrument with ruined lacquer and make it very nice again without hurting the tone or compromising top thickness, etc.

Thankfully, this guitar was refinished by an experienced professional. It looks fabulous and sounds fabulous.

More description to come soon… Call for price
