For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1976 Martin D-18.

The Martin D-18 has long been considered the workhorse of the Martin line being one of the most affordable of the Dreadnaught series that Martin produced. The D-18 has been featured on countless recordings throughout the years and is one of the most widely used guitars in the world. 
This model, from America's bicentennial is a very nice playing and sounding guitar that has been played but has been taken care of. There is a top crack repair but the guitar has not had and does not need a neck reset, It plays splendidly and has full rich tone. It has been equipped with an under saddle Fishman pickup that was installed with an input jack located in the strap pin hole. The result is a great sounding and playing 39 year old Martin that is perfect for gigging, studio or home use. Comes with its original Martin blue hardshell case. 

The D-18 features a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, with an ebony fingerboard.
