1928 Martin 0-18K Solid Koa Parlor Guitar
A sweet little parlor guitar from the Roaring ’20s, made in Nazareth, PA, and looking for a new home. It is constructed of a solid koa body with rosewood binding, an ebony fingerboard and bridge, original tuners, and Model 18 stylings. It needed some attention when we got it – a badly re-set bridge was properly set by our tech, and he made a new ebony nut and added a new piece of binding along the back bottom edge. It has no cracks, but plenty of wear. The original bar frets show medium wear with lots of fret left. And it plays well in the lower positions, but would benefit from a neck reset. It rings loud and chimey, and it comes with a chipboard case.
