Here we have a beautiful Martin D-18 1971 electro-acoustic guitar, previously owned by legendary British acoustic guitarist Paul Downes. Please read further description details, regarding the cosmetic and physical health of the instrument below. 

Following some damage caused by a house fire, the top of this guitar was professionally repaired to an extremely high standard

You don't see these beautiful guitars around very often, so please get in-touch if you are interested in this wonderful instrument! 



This guitar is in good used condition, considering it's age. It has some signs of wear or use, none of which impact on the health, playability or tone of the instrument. These include some minor surface cracks and blemishes. Also, the top has been professionally re-finished by a world-class English luthier. 

Please look at the photos thoroughly as they constitute part of the product description. 


All of our guitars are fully COVID-cleaned, electrically cleaned, setup and restrung before sale. This cost is reflected in the list price.
