    Powerful Martin Dreadnaught! Super warm and balanced when played softly, and really loud and boomy and brassy when you dig in.

  • Awesome axe!

    The D-18GE is a beast! Sam Ash repaired the crack professionally and shipped it with a humidifier as well. Great experience!

    Having never played a D-18, I found a '67, all original, including case, at an good price. I love the history, look, feel of these older guitars. This 18 is easy to hold & play with lovely tone & balance. These Martin's just get better with age & im proud to be the owner of a one. Can't ever go wrong with a Martin!
