Presenting one of the most iconic guitars from Martin's Standard Series, the D-18 Mahogany Dreadnought, this one in Left-Handed.

From Martin about this model:
"Understated looks, timeless tone. The warm tone of mahogany and authentic Sitka spruce couple with resonant scalloped bracing under the hood for a sound that's honest, authoritative, and clear. Vintage details like open-geared tuners and classic 18-style appointments pair with a modern, low profile neck for an old-soul sound in a brand-new body."

While Mahogany may not always get the love it deserves, it is often the preferred wood for singers and songwriters, looking for a more balanced, even tone than you typically get from something like the Rosewood D-28.
