C. F. Martin M-36 Steel String Guitar, 2018

C. F. Martin M-36 Steel String Guitar, 2018

The Martin M-36 uses the fairly new ‘M Body’ design, which using Martin’s ‘O’ sizing is an OOOO, or quadruple O size. Outside of the D Dreadnought and J Jumbo models, this is the largest body Martin uses and it provides a full, even tone with lots of volume.

C. F. Martin D-18 Dreadnought, 1971

C. F. Martin D-18 Dreadnought, 1971

The Martin D-18 has been an iconic, workhorse guitar for decades, used by countless musicians of all skill levels. Its pairing of Spruce and Mahogany for the dreadnought body provide snap, sparkle and definition to a powerful tone. Introduced in 1931 with a 12 fret neck that was extended to 14 frets in 1934, the D-18 has been in constant production.
Here we have a 1971 vintage Martin D-18. It has definitely been used as intended and over the decades, it has experienced the usual wear and stresses. The finish is nicely checked and has the lovely patina

C. F. Martin D12-18 Twelve String Guitar, 1977

C. F. Martin D12-18 Twelve String Guitar, 1977

This fine example of the Martin D12-18 was built during 1977, possibly around May. It’s in overall good condition and most importantly, its has just had a neck reset and full setup at The Twelfth Fret Repair Shop. Consequently, it plays very well and should be ready for years of use. The finish is in good shape with just a few small dings and dents, some of which show up in an exaggerated way in the photos due to lighting effects. The Grover strip tuners are an unusual model, and work well.

C. F. Martin D-21 Steel String Guitar, 1967

C. F. Martin D-21 Steel String Guitar, 1967

The C. F. Martin D-21 Steel String Guitar is less common than its classic D-18 and D-26 brethren. Drawing on the same Dreadnought body design, the D-21 combines D-18 level decoration with the D-28 wood choice of Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate. In 1967, the word ‘Rosewood’ almost always meant Brazilian Rosewood, and this D-21 uses avery nicely figured set. By 1969, Martin had stopped offering Brazilian as an option. This C. F. Martin D-21 is fresh from being maintained and set up in our repair shop and it plays very well.
