Martin Acoustic Guitars - D-18 Ambertone


SOLD. Call us for options.

The quintessential acoustic, this Martin D-18, in a 1930s-inspired Amber Burst, is a magnificent display of workmanship and tone. Designed as the one guitar you'll need, it can do just about anything - from jazz and blues, to country and folk. This is the original 14-fret dreadnought that has inspired countless models and luthiers throughout the years. You get great volume from its Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, while retaining excellent clarity in both the highs and lows.

Just an all-around great-sounding guitar, whether strummed lightly or rocked out on. Its solid Ebony fingerboard makes it one helluva smooth-playing dread, while the select hardwood neck in a Modified Low Oval profile makes it incredibly comfortable on the hands. Topping it off with the classic Amber burst is a gorgeous reminder of the company's Golden Era. Try this Martin D-18 out and experience it for yourself.
