Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar – Sunburst

6-string Acoustic Guitar with Solid Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Hardwood Neck, and Ebony Fingerboard – Sunburst

The Definitive Acoustic Guitar Tone

A bona fide piece of history, the classic Martin D-18 acoustic guitar will take you back to the days when acoustic guitars were king, and players depended upon rich tone and acoustic projection alone to convey their songs. Pick up Martin’s absolutely amazing D-18 and you’ll be captivated by its big, full tonality, its beautiful sonic detail, and its vintage-tinged looks. The D-18 gives you the classic Martin guitar experience, with a dreadnought body, a 14-fret design, and beautiful tonality to match its looks. Its solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides provide the foundation for a stunning sound.

Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:

  • Martin guitars deliver that “just right” acoustic tone
  • Balanced tone sits great in any mix
  • The Martin D-18 is part of modern music’s history

Martin guitars deliver that “just right” acoustic tone

Ask anyone who knows their bluegrass why the Martin D-18 has been a top choice for serious performers. It’s because the D-18’s iconic tone sits “just right”, cutting through and holding its own without overbearing other instruments. Whether you’re playing solo, or in a full bluegrass jam, your D-18’s rich tone will always be heard without fighting with vocals, or covering up the low-end impact from the bass player.

Balanced tone sits great in any mix

The Martin D-18’s “just right” tonality is just as useful in your studio as it is on stage. Just ask any recording engineer that’s been in the business for a couple decades: the D-18 has an uncanny ability to set itself into any mix nicely, with a minimum of processing. Sure, that jumbo-body rosewood guitar looks great, but you’ll be rolling off low frequencies and carefully adjusting compressors to prevent it from getting too boomy or indistinct in the final mix. Just grab your Martin D-18, point your favorite small-diaphragm condenser mic at the 12th fret, and you’ve got a sound that practically mixes itself.

The Martin D-18 is part of modern music’s history

You’ve already heard the sweet sound of the Martin D-18 more times than you probably realize. That’s because it was the choice guitar of legends such as Clarence White, Elvis Presley, and many more. Even Andy Griffith played one on The Andy Griffith Show. The Martin D-18 is a perfect example of an instrument that became iconic purely based on its tone and craftsmanship.
