D-18 Satin
On Order

D-18 Satin


"The Martin D-18 guitar is universally recognized as an American classic. What has made it iconic is its uncommon natural tonal balance and its honest, direct and faithful voice. And, even though this model has had structural changes over the years, the combination of its solid mahogany back and sides with a solid spruce top is a time tested mating that has proven tonally effective over and over again. Today, some players often prefer D-18's more from one era than another, and, in Martin's current catalog, different iterations of the D-18 are now offered which are designed to represent past flavors of this model." - From the Martin Website

Adding a full body satin finish model to the D-18 line is yet another fine wrinkle in its history.  We have found this particular guitar to have the familiar DNA you would expect plus, a lively and resonant response that adds a nice sonic surprise.  The look is, in a way, a bit retro, which we find to be extra cool.
