Default J.C. Baxendale D-18

Up for sale is a J.C. Baxendale D-18 in excellent condition. This guitar was used by my dad (Mark O’Connor) on stage with the O’Connor Band for several months in 2016-17. My dad said it was one of the best-sounding D-18s he’d ever played. He only stopped performing with it because he had Baxendale build him a dreadnought with a special set of Madagascar Rosewood.

Check out the video demo here:

This guitar sounds incredible. It’s very loud and easy to play, and it has a certain sweetness to it that I’ve heard in very few other D-18s. Adirondack spruce top, mahogany back and sides, slim neck profile, 1 ” nut width, Schaller tuners, Baggs Lyric pickup installed (which can be removed upon request). Comes with a cool strap (photos available) and hardshell Harptone case. It does have some pickwear on the top and a couple scratches on the back, but I think that only adds to the vibe!

I wish I could keep this guitar, but a recent Brazilian dreadnought build plus an OM commission for Baxendale has me strapped!

Price lowered to $3,500 plus shipping.

Hey I'm interested in the guitar. I actually have a 51 d18 that is awesome but has the 1 11/16 nut.
