    1934 Martin 000-18 Long Scale

    George Gruhn wrote, “No Martins from any other period in the company's 175-year history rival those made from 1929-39.  It is my opinion that these guitars richly earned the distinction they have been given”.

    This is one of those guitars. It is lightly constructed with high X scalloped bracing to the top, and truly sounds remarkable. String volumes are balanced and the acoustic character stops you in your tracks.

    Here are the details:  
    - Serial number 56824 and 000-18 stamped on the interior neck block,  C.F. Martin Co. Nazareth, PA on the centre back brace back
    - Adirondack Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides
    - This guitar was refinished with Nitro finish
    - ebony fingerboard and bridge
    - original large pick guard
    - one repaired crack in the back
    - center seam slightly visible on back
    - no cracks in the top or sides
    - 4 ply body binding finishing with black at the outer layer
    - vintage correct & aged Waverly replacement tuners
    - original bar frets nicely & lightly dressed by Eiichi Izakawa
    - original bridge slightly reduced in thickness to provide optimum action
    - custom carved intonated bone saddle (very low), no neck reset to date
    - 25.4” scale
     - 14 frets to the body
     - 1-23/32” black nut
    - 15" lower bout
