Product Description

The Martin Standard Series D-18 dreadnought acoustic guitar puts an heirloom-quality instrument in your hands for not a whole lot out of pocket. It’s the workhorse of the C.F. Martin & Co. dreadnought line, a guitar whose restrained good looks put the emphasis squarely on tone and delivery.

The Martin D-18 acoustic’s solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides combine to provide a clear, crisp tonality, while the large, dreadnought-scale body produces a powerful bass response that’s complemented by an incredibly articulate treble range.

The Standard Series D-18 is appointed with Martin’s sleek High Performance Neck for easy fingering even at higher positions and enhanced overall playability. Nickel open-geared tuners with “butterbean” knobs and a tortoise-patterned pickguard lend the instrument a classic feel the moment you play it for the first time. The dovetail neck joint provides optimum neck-to-body tone transfer, while D-18’s Martin Standard X scalloped bracing produces a pure, singing tone that generations of musicians have come to love. Every Martin D-18 acoustic guitar also arrives with a Martin molded case and the C.F. Martin & Co. Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Known for its remarkably full tonal palette and powerful projection, the Martin D-18 has been the go-to acoustic guitar for countless musicians including Elvis Presley, Doc Watson, Peter Rowan, Paul Simon, Jerry Garcia and Kurt Cobain. And while it’s perfectly at home in any setting, the D-18’s bright yet balanced response makes it especially desirable for studio recording work.

The Martin team recently revisited the design of the D-18 and brought together all of the instrument’s best elements—many historic, some new—to create the quintessential D-18. If you’re looking for one guitar with remarkable versatility and a full spectrum of tonal colors (in a very affordable package), the D-18 deserves your attention!
