Martin D18 Satin
All of our Martin D-18 Satin guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The legendary Martin D-18 sets the world standard for what a mahogany guitar should be. Now this mighty Dreadnought model is available in a light, smooth satin finish on the back, sides, top, and neck! Available with an aging toner or amberburst on the spruce top, it offers Standard Series tone thanks to its forward-shifted scalloped bracing and traditional dovetail neck joint. The Genuine Mahogany back and sides provide great woody tone with good base response balanced with bright, clear trebles and a midrange that punches above its weight. The High Performance neck provides fast playing and extra comfort. Classic pre-war Style 18 appointments include an ebony bridge and fingerboard, faux tortoise pickguard, and open-back tuning machines.
Martin Dreadnoughts, like the D-18, are known for their loud, projective tone and strong bass. This model is built to the same specifications as the standard D-18, but now Martin offers this longtime staple with a satin finish top, back, and sides. The top includes an aging toner, and it is also available with an amberburst. The D-18 Satin is crafted with mahogany back and sides, so you’ll still enjoy plenty of volume and pick up some bright trebles and punchy midrange tones. The scalloped bracing on this model contributes volume and a fuller sound than non-scalloped bracing. If you’re looking for a satin-finished Standard Series guitar that stands out from the crowd, this D-18 Satin fits the bill.
