Question * FOUND ONE!* Looking for a 40's through to 1965 Martin 000-18

* FOUND ONE!*

Looking for a 40's through to 1965 Martin 000-18

My budget is around $3000.00

Obviously not looking for a mint example at this price point; but will not consider basket cases, or any severely damaged & or structurally repaired guitars either.

Dings, dents scratches, etc... are perfectly fine. I don't mind legitimate play wear, but not 'abused' guitars..

Please PM me here & let me know what you have?

Thank you.

Yes, but it's $4900. Almost $2K over my budget; but thanks.

I have gone back and forth on whether to sell my '63 00-18. I took it down off AGF and Reverb a few weeks ago when I was having second thoughts, but I'm open to discussion if you want to PM me.

Ooops you're right. I was looking at a different used guitar over there with a much lower price and confused them! Sorry about that.

Here's a '46 00-18 for just over $3k... adi top too! So *almost* a wartime instrument:

https://umgf.com/1946-martin-00-18-t208180.html

I believe I heard a clip of this one (I think I saw one from a prior seller) and it sounds darn good.

I read the forum from the firehose - I click on "Today on the AGF"
from https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/index.php ...

I can see how you'd miss it otherwise...

Same guitar I linked above for $3250 on UMGF. It's an eBay auction with that as the start price... so possible, but unlikely the sale price.
