Martin D-18 Authentic Ambertone (2008)Martin
Guitar Gallery has the widest select of Martin guitars in South Africa. We have this pre-owned Martin D-18 Authentic (2008) with a Ambertone finish in stock. The Martin D-18 stands as one of the true original dreadnoughts introduced by Martin in 1932. The D-18 made a switch from a 12-fret to a 14-fret instrument in 1934 and has stayed largely the same since, with just the occasional change in wood source or cosmetic detail. Since the D-18 uses Mahogany instead of Rosewood, it is thought to have a somewhat crisper sound with more definition the top-end. The D-18 Authentic 1939 is a custom-shop D-18 built as a close replication of an original example from 1939. Differences from the normal D-18 include hide glue construction, steel T-bar truss rod, and a full neck profile.
