MARTIN D-18E SITKA SPRUCE TOP, MAHOGANY BACK AND SIDES
Recently Chris Martin challenged the Martin design team to modernize the iconic Standard Series from styles 18-45. This monumental task had to pay tribute to the classic era while finding a place in todays world. This new 2020 D-18E is the result!
The biggest update is the addition of the modern High Performance neck. It is thinner and more comfortable to play than ever before.
Internally the bracing has now been forward shifted AND scalloped for a louder, more ‘open’ tone.
We opted for the simple and versatile LR Baggs Anthem pickup system. It is remarkably 'true' sounding for those that want their guitar to sound like THIER guitar on stage.
Classic appointments such as open gear tuners and an aged lacquer top remain true to the vintage 30’s models. This fantastic guitar is a true Modern Classic!
