For sale is an exceptionally rare 2002 Martin D-18DC David Crosby Signature Acoustic Guitar, complete with its original hard-shell case. This guitar is a true collector's item, associated with the legendary singer-songwriter and activist David Crosby, co-founder of iconic bands such as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and The Byrds. The D-18DC model boasts distinctive features, including a quilted mahogany back and sides, an abalone center ring sound hole rosette, a mother-of-pearl sailing ship peg-head inlay, limited edition numbering (#27 of 250), and an interior label personally signed by David Crosby and CF Martin IV.
Despite having been played, this guitar is in very good condition and perfect working order. There are some light scratches and a few dings, resulting in an overall solid 8.8 out of 10 rating for the condition. All components on the guitar are original, and there are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no concerns, and the original frets are in excellent condition, showing no signs of wear. A recent setup ensures optimal playability, and the guitar produces a pristine sound with no buzzing or dead spots.
The original hard-shell case, while exhibiting a bit of fading on the interior, remains in very good condition and provides secure protection for this rare and collectible instrument. I've provided detailed photos capturing the wear on the guitar for your thorough inspection.
Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to own a piece of musical history associated with David Crosby. If you're a collector or a fan of iconic acoustic guitars, this Martin D-18DC is a gem worth considering. Thank you for your interest.
