Martin D18 StreetLegend
All of our Martin D-18 StreetLegend guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The spruce top of the D-18 StreetLegendTM makes this brand new Martin guitar look just like the historic 1953 D-18 from the Martin Museum known as “Grandpa,” which was previously owned by Curt Cobain of Nirvana fame. Genuine Mahogany back and sides have no visual wear, but as with the top, they have a light, smooth satin finish which offers a great feel like the satin finish on the High Performance neck. It has the same Standard Series construction of gloss D-18 including the traditional dovetail neck joint and forward-shifted scalloped bracing that provide full-bodied tone with plenty of bass response, punchy mahogany midrange, and sparkling trebles. The vintage Martin looks are enhanced by a hand-distressed pickguard, and aged nickel open-gear tuning machines. If you want the look of a well-worn vintage D-18 at a fraction of the price, the Standard Series D-18 StreetLegendTM has the retro style and legendary Martin tone you seek.
The satin-finished top on the new StreetLegendTM includes some visual wear inspired by historic models found in Martin's museum. This gives your brand-new guitar a well-loved look that shows your music has an old soul like many of the fine instruments Martin has curated over the years. The D-18 StreetLegend is crafted with satin-finished 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. It also includes open-gear aged tuners and a satin-aged pickguard to complete the aesthetic. If you’re looking for a satin finished Standard Series guitar that stands out from the crowd, this D-18 StreetLegend fits the bill.
