Martin D-18 Golden Era Adirondack & Mahogany
For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.’s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Martin has had continuous operation under family management reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker’s craft.
Throughout its history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin’s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
The Martin D-18 and other style 18 models are not the fanciest appointed Martin models, but it's always been a great value, hence Martin sold a lot of them through their history. The "18" portion of the model has always indicated the style of the guitar. The letters before the "18" indicate the body size. The models D-18 and OM-18 and 000-18 are regarded as some of the most copied sizes in guitar history. Nearly every builder offers some take on these classic body shapes.
This guitar simply sounds amazing with a rich openness, depth, clarity and projection that completely fill the room.
