Martin OOO-18 1968 – Natural

$ 4400.00


Up for sale is my 1968 Martin OOO-18.

The neck was reset about 10 years ago and plays very comfortably. The pickguard was replaced around the same time, if not during the neck reset. Other than that, the guitar appears all original. There are some dings here and there, minimal play wear as can be expected with a guitar this age. Please see all the photos, as I’ve tried to make sure I could get every possible angle to highlight the guitar and its condition. There is also some wear in the cowboy chord area on the back of the neck (hard to get to show up in photos). Plenty of fret life and fairly low action for easy playability.


Action at the 1st fret: .01in (E low – E high)

Action at the 12th fret: .08in ( E low – E high)

Saddle height: .095in

Nut Width: 1.68in

I have the action set to the lighter side of medium and there is no fret buss whatsoever with medium/light guage strings. The neck has been measure with a notched strait edge and the fretboard is almost perfectly straight besides the .01in relief between the 5th and 9th frets. The guitar appears to be completely issue free and sounds clear and warm.

I have owned it for almost 7 years and has been such a fantastic guitar to sit down and write songs on. It has that classic Martin sound with tons of sustain that is great for studio work. I will miss this guitar and hope to pass it on to someone who can appreciate this beautiful Martin for years to come. The guitar will ship out of the Dallas – Ft. Worth area.

The guitar comes with a Martin green interior hardshell case.
