  • Description

    The ultimate blend of tradition and innovation, Martin's classic no-frills mahogany/spruce acoustic is now available with a cutaway and premium onboard electronics. Ideal for strummers but versatile enough to satisfy players who play other styles, the body is crafted with genuine mahogany back & sides and a Sitka spruce top with forward shifted scalloped X bracing to produce a warm, beautifully-balanced, and projective acoustic voice with tons of volume, power, midrange focus, and top-end shimmer. A contemporary spin on one of the most iconic Martin models, the DC-18E features a smooth cutaway design for unparalleled upper fret access. The 25.4"-scale Modified Low Oval select hardwood neck is capped with an ebony fingerboard and features Martin's High Performance Taper for outstanding playability and comfort.

    New for 2016, the Martin DC-18E comes loaded up with exclusive Fishman Aura VT Enhance electronics for unbelievable plugged-in sound and performance. This system employs the most advanced Aura Acoustic Imaging technology to preserve the distinctive acoustic voice of the guitar with studio microphone quality. The electronics feature a bridge plate mounted transducer, which adds dimension, resonance, and body to the guitar's amplified sound. From the studio to the stage, the DC-18E is ready to take on anything you throw at it.

    Holding true to the timeless Martin aesthetic, the DC-18E boasts a gloss top with aging toner, a faux tortoise pickguard, faux tortoise bindings, Old Style 18 abalone fingerboard inlays, an old style script headstock logo, vintage-style nickel open-geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs, and more! Includes ply hardshell case.
