The Martin Custom Shop consistently builds absolutely mind-blowing guitars, using the finest timbers, hand-voiced bracing and superb attention to detail. This 2014 D-18VS is a wonderful one-of-a-kind homage to an earlier era of Martin guitars, and is an heirloom instrument in every sense.
Based on a long-discontinued 12-fret D-18, it features an Adirondack spruce top with scalloped Adirondack 'Golden Era' bracing, tight-grained genuine Mahogany back-and-sides, Indian Rosewood and Spanish Cedar ribbons and side strips, ebony fretboard and bridge and Old Style 18 appointments throughout.
It sounds like a great old D-18 should - balanced, sweet and rich with tremendous depth. The 1-3/4" nut width is incredibly comfortable, and the 12-fret join gives the guitar a gentle, effortless playing experience without sacrificing volume or low end.
This 2014 model is in fantastic condition, with only the lightest of playwear. It includes the original Martin hardshell case and all paperwork.
