A gorgeous, fantastic original condition guitar from early in the year. It is more like a 1945 Martin, with Adirondack spruce, ebony truss rod and feather-weight (3 lbs, 3 oz.). It's interesting that it's a four-piece top which makes sense considering that Martin switched to Sitka immediately after. Obviousy they were using up their smaller pieces od Adirondack on the smaller 18 style models. I've since run into anothere similar 00-18 with the four-piece Adirondack top. This one has been setup perfectly, wirh a neck reset, new frets and high saddle.
