From Tonerite:

"Vintage Tone, Now!It’s no secret that vintage instruments sound better. Tens of thousands of hours of play time alter the molecular structure of the wood fibers, aging the instrument and creating a richer, sweeter, and louder tone.The ToneRite accelerates this same play-in process by using a set of sub-sonic frequencies to simulate long term play.  Simply attach the ToneRite whenever you are not playing, and expect to hear a dramatic increase in resonance, balance, and range after only a week of use."

This Martin D-18E Modern Deluxe dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar is packed with vintage appointments, custom features and modern technology. A Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, dovetail neck joint and natural protein glue construction delivers the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners and a unique 1930s-style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock give it a look to match its sound. Ultra-modern features like Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate boost volume without adding weight, making this a guitar player's dream. Adjustable Aura imaging technology included in the new Fishman Aura VT Blend electronics allows more control over the voice of the guitar than ever before. The Martin D-18E Modern Deluxe comes with a hardshell case and is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 light gauge strings.
