This one is right up there with the best playing/sounding dreadnoughts ever. This is the D-18 P version, made for only a year back in the late 80's. It has a very slightly slimmer neck profile, there's not much in it but that small difference makes it a better option for players with smaller hands (full neck specs further down). 

For the sake of full disclosure, this is a detailed run down of the cosmetic issues. From top to bottom.

Top of head - scuffs to the finish and wear to the top edge.

Fingerboard - wear on the rosewood board between the nut, 1st, 2nd and 3rd frets, getting lighter as you progress down the fingerboard to virtually no wear from the 7th fret on.

Back of neck - light indentations.

Body Top - Scratches/scuffs/tiny dings with light wear to the finish on the bottom right edge (see close up).

Back and sides - light scratches/scuffs/tiny dings.

Binding - where it had shrunk back over the years, has been professional repaired and re-seated by a top luthier in Lewes, East Sussex.

Please check the photos thoroughly. There are no nasty surprises with this guitar. No splits to the wood, no neck damage. It's a 30 year old professional guitar which has been used extensively and has got to the point where it's matured for a tone hard to find in newer guitars.
