The Martin D-18E LR Baggs Anthem Electro Acoustic Guitar in Aging Toner gives you sleek, modern performance in a timeless design. Martin has been making guitars for over 175 years so you can rest assured that when you purchase a guitar from them, you're getting all those years of experience in your instrument.
Dreadnought Body Shape
The D-18E has a Genuine Mahogany back and sides combined with a Sitka Spruce top, a classic tonewood combination to give you a big sound when playing unplugged. The Mahogany provides warmth and punch, combined with the snap and clarity of the Sitka so whether you're fingerpicking gently or strumming hard you get a resonant and dynamic tone. Forward-shifted X-bracing ensures the top vibrates freely, increasing volume and bass response whilst keeping the construction of the guitar solid.
High Performance Neck
A High-Performance Taper features on the Select Hardwood composed neck, giving a sleek feel all across the Ebony fretboard of the D-18E. 20 frets marked by Old Style 18 Abalone inlays ensure you never lose your way during adventurous scale runs and the Modified Low Oval profile gives you enough heft for complex chords but remains fast during single note playing.
LR Baggs Anthem Electronics
The award-winning LR Baggs Anthem electronics give you studio-quality sound everywhere you go, combining a proprietary condenser microphone with the acclaimed Element pickup to deliver all the unplugged warmth and fidelity with accuracy and clarity. The Tru Mic is mounted to the underside of the bridge and it's this mounting system, combined with noise cancellation that frees the mic to perform as if it were in a studio, with balanced frequency response to give you excellent clarity and solidity for high and low frequencies.
The bridge is composed of Ebony with Black Plastic bridge pins to form an extremely stable platform with a steady intonation that will put up with the hardest strumming. The tuning machines are Nickel Open Gear with Butterbean knobs, doing the dual job of looking fantastic and giving you rock-solid tuning stability. A bone nut provides the support between the tuners and the bridge to give you an even action all across the neck.
The Martin D-18E LR Baggs Anthem Electro Acoustic Guitar in Aging Toner is a quality piece of gear with all the hallmarks of the legendary Martin construction. Despite its classic looks underneath lies a thoroughly modern guitar that will sound incredible whether you're plugged in or not, a guitar thoroughly suited to both studio and stage.
