One of the cleanest and most original early '60s D-18 models we've had, and fresh from a neck reset and refret by Gryphon's Repair Dept. All parts and finish are original with the exception of the saddle, and the frets of course. Being from early 1963 this was completed at Martin's old North Street factory, with hot hide glue construction and a thin lacquer finish. No sign of any repairs being done before it landed here, including a super-clean bridge plate suggesting few string changes were done during its first 58 years. New TKL case as shown.
