This Custom Shop take on the classic D-18 offers depth of tone that will rival a boutique guitar.
Why We Love This
The Martin D-18 is unquestionably one of the most popular guitars in our shop! In an effort to offer an upgrade without stretching to an "Authentic" level price point, we've created a Custom Shop 18-style dreadnought that incorporates all the specs of a Standard Series D-18 but substitutes a European Spruce top for the normal Sitka.
To our ears, this is a D-18, only better. The European Spruce top brings more stiffness to the table, imparting color of tone, clarity, snap, and a significantly more focused & clear low end. This Custom Shop take on the classic D-18 offers depth of tone that will rival a boutique guitar ~ with the modern neck profile favored by many contemporary players. Priced with 3-ply hardshell case from Martin!
