   "Here is a great little postwar Martin with surprisingly little wear and tear for its 60 years on Earth. The 0-18 was consistently popular before the 1960's and kept in continuous production by Martin even during the war years, averaging around 500 units shipped every year. This small-body instrument was the least expensive spruce-top guitar in Martin's line, retailing at just over fifty dollars.which was not an inconsiderable sum in 1947! Then, as now the 0-18 offers a lot of sound in a small package"
   "The guitar has typical Style 18 features: mahogany body with a spruce top, plain tortoise celluloid binding on the top and back and simple dot inlay. The tuners are the original riveted open-back Kluson singles with plastic buttons. The neck is a bit deeper in profile than the typical later Martin style, and is very comfortable. The sound is quite loud for a small guitar with a more mellow roundness than many more recent 0-18's. All in all a very nice 1940's guitar suitable for a range of musical styles"
   "The top center seam has been sealed, the neck has been reset and the original bridge reglued; all very neatly done. There is one repaired back crack, one sealed top crack under the low E string and some pickwear near the soundhole, otherwise this guitar shows only light finish wear"
