Product Description

Martin is proud to announce the release of the DSS-2018 show special dreadnought guitar! Each year Martin designs a new ground breaking model known as the show special to help support the NAMM and Frankfurt trade shows, by making it available only to those in attendance.

The theme for 2018 is lightweight wood with a robust sound. The difference can not only be heard, but felt as you cradle and strum this feather weight acoustical innovation. Though large in size, the features that attribute to these tonal and weight benefits are a 2-way adjustable titanium truss rod, carbon fiber and titanium tuning gears, composite carbon fiber/VTS Adirondack bridge plate and head plate, a carbon fiber ultrathin pickguard, and liquid metal pins that are disguised to look like bone. Liquid Metal pins have been proven to increase sustain, harmonics and volume output by several decibels, adding to the allure of this physics experiment.

Mahogany and Adirondack spruce were chosen as the tone woods for this slope-shoulder dreadnought, along with flamed maple binding, for their lightness and rich tones. While the elements of titanium and carbon fiber reduce weight and increase the natural sustain and harmonics of the DSS-2018, the high performance neck with ebony fingerboard is adorned with grained ivoroid snowflake inlay for a touch of elegance.
