This 0-18T just sparkles from every angle. Sure it's got a couple of dings to the finish, but except for the strap button in the heel cap nothing has been changed but the strings and even the pickguard has been spared any pick scratches. By 1976 Martin had been building the 0-18T tenor models for almost 50 years making it the most successful and long-running tenor guitar of all time, and the crew in Nazareth clearly had it figured out as this one rings and sustains with bell-like clarity. Thanks to the short 23 inch string scale a tenor like this is highly versatile. You can tune it in fifths, like a tenor banjo, or you can tune it like the top four strings of a regular guitar. Put on a heavier set of strings and you can tune it like an octave mandolin. This comes in its original hardshell case.
