Martin D-18 Standard Series Vintage Sunburst

The improved specification version of Martin’s Standard Series classic, the D-18, takes things even further with a higher grade Sitka top, ebony bridge, forward-shifted scalloped braces and a mahogany neck, along with a wider nut & aging toner used for the finish. The Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar really is something a bit special.

Body

The dreadnought body of the Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar is comprised of a Solid Sitka spruce top and solid genuine mahogany back & sides. This combination gives an excellent mix of projection and clear, articulate tone along with an enhanced mid-range for an overall sound that’s hard to ignore. Strengthened with a forward-shifted, standard ''X'' scalloped bracing pattern, with 5/16'' solid Sitka spruce braces, the Martin D-18 will be the most reliable guitar in your arsenal.

In addition to being tough and sounding great, the Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar also looks like a trusted relic. This is thanks to the gorgeous polished gloss sunburst finish, which also uses an aging toner for a vintage twist. This has been given a simple black pickguard, so as not to detract from the finish.

Neck

Joined to the body of the Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar, with a dovetail joint, is a mahogany neck, shaped to a modified low oval profile with a performing artist taper. Topping this is a solid black ebony fingerboard with 20 frets and old style 18 inlays, matched by a solid black ebony bridge with a compensated saddle and bone nut.
