This photo set was taken before I oiled the fingerboard and bridge, then installed a set of D’Addario medium gauge 80/20 strings.
This 2009 “75th Anniversary” limited edition 1934 style Martin D-18 remains in nearly unused condition, as does the original TKL vintage style case. Stiff Adirondack Spruce top with bold grain lines, Honduras Mahogany back, sides, and neck, Rear headstock stamp, Waverly G-98 style tuners, 1 3/4″ nut width, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, 2 5/16″ (October-December 1934) string spread at bridge, Advanced X-brace position, Long bridge saddle, Ebony bridge pins, black body binding. Alan Perlman recently set the string height to medium-low (2mm – 2 1/2 mm), leveled the frets, and compensated the bridge saddle. This guitar has a very powerful voice for an unused guitar, with a lot of detail in the upper midrange and treble. with the original TKL vintage hard case, also in unused condition.
