Introducing the Martin D-18 Modern Deluxe, a modern spin on an old classic. Offering up vintage style with modern playability, this dreadnought is the perfect marriage of sophistication and performance. Gigging musicians are sure enjoy the modern technology Martin has packed into this guitar, while collectors will appreciate its unique look and rich, fully aged Martin tone. Unlike anything in their production line to date, this D-18 is anything but standard.

Sitka Spruce and Genuine Mahogany: A Classic Combination
The Martin D-18 Modern Deluxe features a solid VTS Sitka spruce top and VTS Adirondack spruce bracing. Paired with genuine mahogany back, sides and neck, the D-18 Modern Deluxe is guaranteed to deliver that warm, vintage Martin tone players know and love. The dreadnought body is great for heavy strummers and rhythm players, with the spruce/mahogany combination delivering a balanced tone perfect for any occasion.

Contemporary Tech
The D-18 Modern Deluxe features contemporary tech that enhances its playability. The truss rod, made from titanium, is 64% lighter than a standard truss rod and easily adjustable. Liquidmetal red dot bridge pins combined with a carbon fiber bridge plate increase volume by several decibels without adding weight. All Modern Deluxe guitars feature an ultra-low-profile, asymmetrical neck shape for maximum hand comfort and playability.

Classic Martin Beauty
Decorated with exquisite accents, the D-18 Modern Deluxe radiates classic beauty. Stylish gold frets and open-gear tuners give the guitar a definitive look, while East Indian rosewood binding and a gorgeous, pearl inlaid, 1930s-style script logo on the headstock make this guitar a sight to behold. The D-18 Modern Deluxe is sure to play as good as it looks.
