Preowned, 2012 near mint

This guitar is a virtual time machine. You can really imagine going back to 1939, opening up the case of a Martin D-18 and it being like what you're playing now. Everything about it lives up to this model's exceptional qualities; the look, the sound, the feel. And on top of it all it weighs less than 4 lbs. Martin sure knows how to do Martin and they really nailed it here. A very impressive near mint guitar, gently priced.

From the Martin Guitars website:
Here to remind you why you fell in love with us in the first place, the New Authentics are constructed the old way - with hide glue, throughout, and historically-accurate detailing confirmed by using a CAT scan machine located at the Smithsonian Institute. Based on a 1939 D-18 in our museum, this guitar features genuine mahogany back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, using an authentic circa 1939 bracing pattern. Period-correct "18" authentic-style appointments, with an authentic neck barrel and heel, complete this piece.
