The New Martin D-18 Modern Deluxe offers you a reimagined version of a guitar that you know and love. Everything that made the D-18 such a phenomenal workhorse guitar is still there, but the addition of features such as the Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, East Indian Rosewood binding, and a titanium truss rod all come together to make this already amazing tone-machine a real work of modern guitar art. With classy looks and rich sound, the Martin D-18 Modern Deluxe is truly the complete acoustic package.
The D-18 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in our production line to date with East Indian rosewood binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. And we’ve included a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.
