A late '60s 000-18 with great "bear-claw" figure to the top, and one that's seen some repairs to the sides so it's not expensive. Original tuners and bridge, black pickguard has been replaced with a faux tortoise shell pickguard, but one intended for a Dreadnought so it doesn't fit the rosette quite as neatly as the original. Extensive repairs to cracks in the lower bout on both sides, but original finish everywhere else (a jack hole has been filled on the treble side as well). Bridge height has been reduced somewhat, string action is a comfy "3 1/2 and 2" (2/32" above the 12th fret on the high E, 7/64" above the 12th fret on the low E) but if really slinky low action is what you're after this 000 probably isn't your ticket. A great sounding, and playing 50+ years old 000 for under 2500 bucks.
