Description

Details

The Martin D-18 dreadnought acoustic guitar is a legendary model produced by a company who're masters of their craft. Martin's innovation in the world of the humble acoustic guitar cannot be understated. As pioneers of the dreadnought guitar, X-bracing and the 14-fret guitar, it is only fair to say that the modern acoustic guitar would not exist in the form that it does without their developments, so for that Martin, we thank you.

The top is built from solid Sitka spruce, a fantastic North American tonewood that has the enviable combination of being lightweight whilst having exceptional resilience, strength and elasticity. Due to its superb resonant qualities, spruce enables the soundboard to project a big sound with ease. Thanks to the standard "X" scalloped, forward shifted bracing pattern, the top is reinforced to prevent the chance of warping over time, but is able to resonate freely.

The back and sides of the guitar are built from genuine mahogany, the tonewood of choice in the manufacture of high-end acoustic guitars. Thanks to its natural warmth, the D-18 produces a rich, thumping mid to low-end energy that is the driving force of this acoustic's timbre.

The neck is cut to the modified low oval profile with performing artist taper to guarantee a reassuring feel in the hand without feeling cumbersome or bulky. Married to the neck is a solid black ebony fingerboard, which is home to a total of 20 frets, with 14 clear frets. Martin's "old-style 18" position inlays provide a stylish navigational aid. The fingerboard width at the nut is 1-11/16” extending to 2-1/8” at the 12th fret. Although some fingerstyle players may prefer a 1-1/3” width at the nut, the guitar still accommodates fingerstyle beautifully.

The body top beneath the soundhole and along the lower bout is protected from pickscrapes that can occur during performances by a Delmar tortoise colour pickguard. The nickel open-geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs uphold tuning integrity with the utmost precision. The bone nut maintains string tension keenly, whilst the solid black ebony bridge provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation.

The body is bound by a tortoise colour trim, which encases the stunning natural finish in style. Protection has been given to the woods in the form of polished gloss with aging toner to the top, and polished gloss on the back and sides. Martin has developed their own unique recipe to guarantee the woods are protected from unwanted damage, temperature/humidity changes, without impeding the woods ability to resonate to their fullest.

The Martin D-18 dreadnought acoustic guitar is quite simply one of the finest acoustic guitar models available, built by a company who have been crating impeccable acoustic guitars since 1833. To ensure you model is kept safe and sound, Martin have included a deluxe hardshell case.
