If you're looking for a great D-18 from the 1950's that's ready to go on stage, you just found it. This guitar has been loved and played and certainly shows it. There are many places of worn finish, scratches marks dings, several repaired cracks, and even holes patched, but all is solid and ready for use. The neck is straight the action is comfortable and the tone is robust and great for flat picking or otherwise. Most importantly, this guitar still has its integrity because it appears to be all original from the finish on out except the bridge has been replaced with a period correct Brazilian rosewood bridge. All-in-all, this is a real workhorse guitar from the mid-1950's and is waiting for its next owner. Comes with modern hard shell case with original bridge in case.
