Here is a beautiful D-18 from Martin Guitars. The 18 series has long been my favorite series from their deep line up of iconic guitars. Just enough ornamentation to not look pedestrian but no frills attatched. With tropical mahogany neck, back and sides and a spruce face it has the iconic combination that can push a lot of sound.
This particular model, while appearing to be just a standard D-18 on the outside, comes from the custom shop. The platform is that of a standard D-18 but it has scalloped adirondack bracing and an adirondack spruce top, features that were standard on guitars from the golden era.
This guitar is in remarkable condition and is a wonderful opportunity to get some excellent features at a price that is close to the standard series.
