    Actually purchased this guitar back on April 30, and it went to my luthier for repairs the very next day. Finally picked it up yesterday, so yeah... as far as I'm concerned, it's a New Guitar Day!

    She's a 1938 Martin 00-18. I'm primarily a fingerstyle player, and I've always lusted for a pre-war Martin small body. :)

    Very nice.

    Congrats!!!

    That's a beauty.

    I'm still waiting for my vintage Martin acoustic.

    I WILL find an amazing deal on one in the future.

    I don't know when, but I know I will.

    I'm patient, so it could be a very long time

    Love those little 00 Martins, great tone and punch. I've played a few '30s 00-17s that were fantastic, I'd imagine that the spruce versions must have a very sweet tone.

    I play electric too , but my acoustics are my " go to " guitars , for the most of my playing time . and a good one like that is invaluable . spend a lot of time with her . put some life into that old wood
