C. F. Martin Em-18 Electric Guitar

Beautiful piece of C.F. Martin history available in impeccable condition! Quite rare, and includes the original hardshell case and even the original players guide paperwork. This EM-18 solid-body electric guitar hails from 1979-80 and was made in Martin's factory in Nazareth PA, USA. It has a curly maple body with walnut strips and straight maple in the middle, solid all the way through. Mahogany neck, with a rosewood fret board and the original brass nut. Dimarzio pickups, very hot with a lot of sound selections including a three-position coil selector and phase switch that was exclusive to the EM-18. Low action and plays great! Note that I find the rhythm pickup crackles a bit if it's solely selected and you have to turn it somewhat high; the treble works perfectly. Very minor, barely noticeable nicks from normal usage (as would be expected in a guitar of this age), but no significant scratches or gouges of any kind. Finish is gorgeous with no checking whatsoever and the quality you would expect from Martin. Only reason I'm parting with it is because it doesn't stylistically suit me and my music. I hope the winner enjoys it as much as I did. Only for sale to United States buyers due to the weight and size. (It would cost an international buyer a fortune with shipping and customs fees.) I'm happy to answer any questions. Good luck!
