   "In 1934, this handsome O18K rolled out of the Martin factory. Retailing at around $45, this guitar had evolved with it.s original 1923 specs. Rosewood binding has been replaced by 5 ply purfling and black plastic purfling, the small 5-7-9 fingerboard inlays were now graduated from the 5th to the 15th fret. The Shellac finishes of the 20.s became nitrocellulose and the straight bridges were now belly style to cope with higher string tensions."

   "This 018K is one of 103 made in 1934 and a total production of ~3000. It has had a professional refinish, neck reset and an additional pickguard added. The maple bridgeplate has been replaced and a new saddle and nut installed."
