    Description

    Jim Reeves 1955 Martin 5-18 Guitar. Here is a pint-sized Martin & Co. model number 5-18 acoustic guitar once owned by country singer Jim Reeves to compose many of his songs. The Martin 5-18 was typically a travel guitar; all components of a full-size Martin were shrunk down to a compact size -- perfect for playing on a tour bus. And that is exactly what Reeves did with this 1955 Martin (serial number 142050). Tragically, Reeves was killed in a plane crash a few weeks after his 1964 tour. The guitar remains as a song-writer's legacy and important part of Country music history. In Very Good condition though it is missing its guitar strap knob and has small dings and scratches from normal wear. Accompanied by COA listing provenance history from the Jim Reeves Estate to present and serial number.
