Martin Acoustic Guitars - D-18 SB

$2,499.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This Martin D-18, with a 1935 burst finish upgrade, is a workhorse of a guitar, capable of doing just about everything. This is the original 14-fret dreadnought that has inspired countless models and guitar builders throughout the years with its exceptional presence, sound and build. The new forwarded shifted X bracing adds even more projection and the 1 3/4" nutwidth (now standard for this model) makes it an incredibly comfortable player. The neck itself has a slim 'Performing Artist' taper too, and a satin finish, making this classic guitar even more of a real joy to play. The Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides give this D-18 beautiful tone and volume, and excellent clarity in both the highs and lows. The 1935-style Sunburst (set off so well by the tortoise style pickguard) is a gorgeous reminder of the company's early years that set the standard, and this Martin D-18 is bringing on its own gilded age.
