Product Description

A great sounding and great playing used Martin, and it is in the same condition as when it left the factory when it was brand new in 2018.  This guitar was purchased by a collector who owns too many guitars to play, and this guitar has no fret or fingerboard wear.  The scratches and dings were added at the factory to distress this model.  What follows is the Martin factory description of this guitar, in their own words.

A new guitar that looks and sounds like it’s been played for 80 years, the Aged version of the acclaimed D-18 Authentic 1939 includes all of the goodness that comes with Martin’s Authentic Series instruments, like hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X-bracing—plus the Vintage Tone System (VTS) that ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. But we didn’t stop there. We’ve now taken this amazing model and methodically, painstakingly distressed it, inside and out, in all the right places. The result is a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930s. And we know you’re going to like it there. Stock is limited.
