Introducing "Gabe" - a 1956 Martin 000-18

Direct from the daughter of the original Owner, Gabe, we are honored to be offering an original 1956 Martin 000-18 for your consideration here at NHP. Originally purchased in Southern Missouri in the late 50's, this guitar has been with the same family for the entirety of its 68-year life span. Gabe passed his guitar down to his daughter, Donna, who has owned it for roughly the last 25 years, keeping it beautifully preserved in that time. This guitar has been a cherished family heirloom and it is now time for it to find a new home with the same level of care and appreciation. Overall in Excellent Original condition - this 000-18 has a sonic voice that only 70-year-old cured wood can produce.

Thanks for looking!!
