Martin D-18

Martin completely redesigned the D-18 back in 2012, combining the standard model with the D-18V, and changing up the neck feel significantly. From the older Vintage series the D-18 borrowed scalloped and forward shifted bracing, ebony fingerboard and bridge, vintage appointments, and toned finish. From the standard series came the drop-in saddle and low-profile oval neck carve. Today’s Martin D-18 is quite likely the best-made standard-series D-18 since the mid 1940s.

Sitka spruce top with forward shifted scalloped bracing, South American mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge, tortoiseshell plastic bindings and bevelled-edge pickguard, bone nut and compensated saddle, vintage style tuning machines, old-style headstock logo, vintage-toned nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Modified low-oval neck with 1-3/4' width at the nut, 25.4' scale, and satin finish.

With deluxe hardshell case.
