New Here. Own and regularly exercise two Martins. HD-28 mid 80's; D- 35 '90. Love flat pickin' the former, and the fullness of the latter. 'Spect I'll lurk here a bit. Jay

Hi, Jan.  Your D-18 was made in 2007.  Happy picking!

Anyway it comes very close to what I was told : the first owner had it for abeut 3 years, and the man I bougth it from owned for abeut a year. I think the first owner live in USA. It has the smell of Cinomen inside. Last year I went to the east coast (NY Nazareth Washington) and learned  that you like this sense. In Denmark, where I live its more flower senses like lavender we prefer in lockers and cabinets

Jan's correct, almost. There are 7 digits in the SN, not 6, so that is a later model SN, actually 2007, I think.

As I read it, it would have been late year 2006

According to this site, it's a 1917 vintage, if I am reading it correctly.
