Martin D-18 Sunburst
All of our Martin D-18 Sunburst guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
Martin has revamped the legendary D-18! Improvements include a higher grade Sitka top, an ebony bridge, foreward-shifted scalloped braces and a mahogany neck. Other changes include a wider nut & aging toner. The Martin D-18 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. Martin D18 Sunburst comes with a Martin hardshell case. The Martin D-18 is also available in Natural or Ambertone finish.

Please note: Adding a guitar pickup or strap button to this model will disqualify it from our return policy and therefore it cannot be returned after these uprades are added. Upgrade prices below include installation; these fees are non-refundable. Also, we cannot ship Mammoth Ivory or Walrus Ivory products to California, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon or Washington due to legislation in those states.
Martin changed the specs on this model at the 2012 Winter NAMM show. Please use the "Guitar Specs" link above to view them.
