1949 Martin 5-18

1949 Martin 5-18. The smallest of the Martin guitar family, this 3/4-sized guitar packs some serious punch! Outstanding condition with only light cosmetic wear including some small dings and finish scratches. Gorgeous Adirondack Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides, and the same top-notch build construction that you find on the larger guitars from this era. Fantastic playing condition with an excellent set up. Tuned to G standard, a minor third higher than standard tuning, this guitar has a unique voice that projects extremely well and is a blast to play. The tone is focused and woody with a strong midrange presence and beautiful top end brilliance. A small guitar with a huge sound!
