Product description

The Martin D18 Authentic 1939 was manufactured in Nazareth in the USA. The company history of C.F. Martin goes back to the year 1833. Today C.F. Martin works in the sixth generation of the family-run company. The long experience in guitar construction is reflected very well in the current models.

The Martin D-18 from the Authentic series reflects the authentic sound and the authentic playability of the original Martin D-18 from 1939. The original Martin D-18 from the year 1939 (Martin Museum Nazareth) was reproduced by an elaborate scanning process with the best wood.

This Dreadnought model D-18 1939 is equipped with a top of solid Adirondack spruce VTS and back/sides made of solid genuine Mahogani. The top was worked through the VTS method (Vintage Tone System) for best vibration. Due to this (by pressure and temperature) aging process, the Adirondack spruce has oscillation characteristics like a decayed old wood. This effect is already noticeable at the first chord!

A standard X-Scalloped Bracing (Authentic-Style) made of Adirondack spruce serves as a deck construction. The beautiful Adirondack spruce top is rounded off by a Black/White cover insert and a Tortoise Brown binding. As in 1939, mahogany was used for the neck material, to which a ebony fingerboard was glued. The neck profile has a 1939 Authentic Barrel & Heel profile and the scale length is 25.4". The beautiful headboard cover made of solid Madagascar rosewood completes the beautiful simple look of the Martin D-18 Authentic. The high-quality Waverly Nickel 4060 Butterbean tuners ensure the right tuning. The bridge and saddle are made of bone. The bridgeinlay was inserted into a bridge made of solid ebony. The Martin Dreadnought was equipped with Martin Phosphor Bronze Medium MSP7200 (.013 - .056) strings.

This gorgeous instrument comes with a Martin case from the Martin 500 series and Martin certificate.

Each acoustic guitar will be optimally adjusted in our workshop.
