Martin (new) D-18GE

Tag No 32-3861 New

#1706170, with Geib style hard shell case.

In an effort to get in touch with its own historical antecedents the C F Martin Company has gradually brought back the D-18 of the 1930s.  Its salient features are numerous:  Adirondack spruce top and Advanced X Forward Shifted Golden Era scalloped bracing.  We present a fourteen fret to the body, 20 fret total guitar, with Adirondack ¼” bracing, genuine mahogany for the sides and back, a solid Brazilian rosewood headplate veneer with the old style burnished gold script “C F Martin & Co., Est 1833” logo.  It is made utilizing mahogany blocks and a dovetail neck joint, has a black ebony fingerboard, bridge and heel cap, a long scale of 25.4” nut to saddle, a comfortable 1 ¾” nut width and 2 5/16th” bridge string spacing.     

This instrument's creamy Adirondack visage hosts the 1930s style belly bridge with the long saddle of fossil ivory, and in addition sports a fossil ivory nut, Gotoh nickel-plated open-bear tuners, and solid black ebony bridge and end pins.  The 6 fingerboard markers are “old style -18” being colorful pearl, positioned in diminishing size (much like ourselves).   The neck is “Modified V with ‘30s style taper.”   It’s interior paper label was signed by C F Martin IV; the beveled and polished pickguard is Delmar tortoise color; the body is polished gloss finish and the back of the neck is matte (Crosslink) finish.  Its sound is big, woody, airy, acoustically transparent and full of vintage vitality.  For a fraction of the price of an original prewar Martin D-18 you get a guitar you that will provision you with prestige and personal satisfaction for the rest of your natural life, and possibly beyond.
