1986 Martin D-16M Guitar – Great Sound

For anyne unfamiliar with this guitar – its more like a D18V – it was built with the traditional dovetail neck joint and Scalloped Forward Shifted X Bracing – better guitar than the standard D18 was at the time.  Sounds like a 40’s D18 – no cracks – finish checking – binding re-glue in some places – possible bridge may have been thinned a little – 3/32″ action at 12th fret bass side.  Please call for in hand description.
