The all-new Custom Shop D-18 1937 rewards players with the sonic superiority of Martin’s Authentic Series and the everyday practicality of a workhorse guitar. Regarded as the cornerstone of performance, Martin’s highly prized 1937 models set the benchmark for generations of instruments that followed. This guitar sports time-tested features like Authentic bracing, hide glue and cloth strip construction, and an adjustable truss rod which gives enthusiasts the day-in, day-out reliability of an instrument that travels well AND responds to seasonal adjustments as it matures. With the all-new Custom Shop D-18 1937 the stars have aligned again.
Visually, this custom shop D-18 Authentic takes advantage of Martin's proprietary Vintage Low Gloss process to add a holy grail vibe. This combines Martin’s vintage Ambertone burst finish and the new Stage 1 lightly aged finish. Lacking the heavy wear and tear of an instrument that’s seen considerable use, the Stage 1 finish with light cracking and crazing is inspired by those rare vintage instruments that were simply kept in the case and tucked away for decades. Our Stage 1 finish bears the marks of time but not the battle scars common on many vintage re-creations. Martin takes craftsmanship to another plateau with this heirloom level work of art. The finest D18 available.
Not your typical D18. This one is off the charts. Big bold balanced tone. It’s loud. The iconic D18 taken to the next level. Limited availability.
