Martin D18E with Fishman Aura VT Enhance
The D-18E is the Mahogany dreadnought in Martin's Standard Series of professional-level acoustic guitars.
The only thing standard about Martin's Standard Series is the consistently excellent hand-made construction and high-quality materials, including solid quartersawn tonewoods, solid bone hardware, and a solid Sitka spruce soundboard with tight, straight, even grain and loads of cross silking. And today's D-18E is a stellar example.
Martin revamped the legendary D18 in 2012. Improvements include a higher grade Sitka top, ebony bridge, foreward-shifted scalloped braces and a mahogany neck. Other changes include a wider nut & aging toner. The D18E Martin is the standard by which every other mahogany dreadnought should be measured; that classic dry woody tone that Martin is famous for. It is equally suitable for bluegrass, country or rock. The Fishman Aura VT Enhance provides stellar amplification in the studio and onstage. The Martin D-18E is also available with the LR Baggs Anthem.
