This is an amazing sounding guitar - one of the finest D-18s we have. The underside of the top has been signed all over by Martins Custom Shop team along with CF Martin. The guitar has some mild bellying, but we have seen this go down since it arrived here in NZ. Tuners have been upgraded to gold Waverly  A D-18 with D-28 style appointments and tortoiseshell binding, something of a one off! This guitar is a killer, with a huge amount of volume driven by the Englemann top. Snap up a rarity with Martin history written all over the inside.

    Everyone at Studio 1 is so amazing, they are so understanding and helpful. They helped me find the perfect guitar for me. I wish more dealers in the US were as outstanding as this crew is. And it’s pretty obvious their website is one of the best in the business. Just because you are not in NZ, do not hesitate, they know what they are doing!

    Dana, I’ve been waiting for this guitar for many years, Thank You!!!

    Well Garrick you’ve delivered once again mate. This “0” size “Country Boy” by Dana Bourgeois is just incredible. Very elegant in design,nothing superfluous just master grade materials and a deep appreciation of all possibilities resulting in a strong, clean and uncluttered sound from a very user friendly instrument. Tight but loose at the same time, wonderful.
    Thanks Garrick and Co.
    Thanks Studio 1 Vintage Guitar’s.

    Communication was great, delivery was super quick and packed so well. The guitar is everything I thought it would be. I have a 74 D50R which is quite a chunky neck, still lovely to play though, this one has a slimmer neck which suits my hands much better. Love the feel, sound and the look of this guitar. I would buy from these guys again if anything came up that tickled my fancy. I'm a very keen Guild collector, so I'm super happy I have this one now.

    Wow probably the best guitar I have ever played. Garrick found this for me after some lengthy conversations and he delivered and some. This is second guitar from these guys and they rock for sure. Always so helpful and quick to answer any questions. Words can’t express how impressive these guys are. Lifetime customer.
