1937 was an excellent year for guitars with a perfect storm of craftsmanship, innovation & materials. This Authentic Series replication of a 1937 D-18 stays true to the original with hide glue construction & historically accurate setailing. This guitar features genuine mahogany back & sides & an Adirondack spruce top & it includes an Authentic circa 1937 bracing pattern. It includes period-correct "18" Authentic-style appointments & an Authentic neck barrel & heel & new this year, a more accurate body profile based on dreadnought shapes from the early Golden Era of Martin's history. Martin's VINTAGE TONE SYSTEM (VTS) is employed to age the top & braces, which captures the tone from the 1930s era. Martin's craftspeople can recreate the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar & reproduce the particular tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
