This 1941 D-18 carries the signs of a well-favored guitar and a top that has aged to a nice orange hue. The finish is original and untouched...it was likely exposed to a lot of sunlight or cigarette smoke. The top is crack-free, and there is one well-repaired crack in the back. The bridge and bridge plate are well made replacements; there was an oversized bridge installed on the guitar at some point in the past. The neck was reset and the frets were replaced to ensure excellent playability...the neck angle is perfect with a nice, healthy saddle. The tuners and pickguard are also original to the instrument. This guitar has plenty of tone and continues to sound better with play as it settles in from the neck set...take a listen below!
