Martin D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged
A new guitar that looks and sounds like it's been played for 80 years, the Aged version of the acclaimed D-18 Authentic 1939 includes all of the goodness that comes with Martin's Authentic Series instruments, like hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X bracing. Plus, the Vintage Tone System (VTS) that ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin, but they didn't stop there. They've now taken this amazing model and methodically, painstakingly distressed it, inside and out, in all the right places. The result is a tactile, visual and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930's. And you know you're going to like it there. Stock is limited.
