Martin D-18MD Modern Deluxe Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
Martin have really hit it out of the park with the new Modern Deluxe Series!
Classic Vintage Martin Tone that will only get better over time
Modern Technology that helps creates a huge sound yet looks traditional
The tonal & dynamic range of these guitars is astonishing.
The Modern Deluxe Series guitars are packed with innovation, although at first glance you may not notice it.
In typical fashion Martin are not flaunting the technical Innovations but when you play them you can’t help but notice the incredible sound and playability of these guitars.
The D-18 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in our production line to date with East Indian rosewood binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. And we’ve included a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.
