Product Description

Designed by Martin and our buyer, this D18 is a players guitar. To keep the organic look of the legendary D18 we kept the top binding dark but upgraded to Madagascar Rosewood. This D18 looks incredible and sounds twice as good. This takes the most recorded guitar in history and adds heirloom quality wood. This could be the best sounding and looking D18 you will ever get your hands on. This Custom Shop D18 Quilt Mahogany beautifully captures the essence of the D18 with custom-quality tone woods at a great price!

A Custom D18 created by Martin and the AMS buyer who came together to build this exclusive acoustic with hand selected, high grade tone woods! The Martin Custom D18 Buyers Choice Acoustic Guitar features a remarkable Adirondack Spruce top for its beautiful grain and fantastic tonal qualities. Quilt Mahogany back and sides compliment the top perfectly, adding great lows, midrange and punch.

I have always loved the sound of a mahogany guitar, but adding the adirondack top sends this guitar on another level. I also was surprised by how well the modified oval neck played! I highly recommend this custom built Martin!
