Martin D-18V Acoustic Guitar, Mahogany & Sitka Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


This Martin D-18V is one of the original 218 made in 1992, and it predates the Vintage Series from a few years later. This guitar was designed to emulate the pre-war D-18, and features a modified V neck, and forward-shifted x-bracing. It has a beautiful Sitka Spruce top over mahogany back and sides.

This guitar has aged wonderfully, and sounds open, responsive, and rich. It has excellent note separation, and is amazingly lively. This guitar captures the sound of a vintage guitar, and now at nearly 30 years old, it nearly is one!

Martin began using a CNC machine in 1993, making this among the final guitars made entirely by hand. This guitar comes in a non-original hardshell case and is in very good pre-owned condition.
