Classic Martin Tone

The Martin D-18E Retro is a top choice for serious performers due to it's iconic tone that is known to cut through while allowing other instruments to be heard. The D-18's rich tone will greatly accompany vocals and allow the low-end impact from the bass player to cut through the mix. Whether you're on stage or in the studio this guitar is sure to deliver the vintage Martin tone that you are seeking.

Spruce Top

The Martin D-18 features a Spruce top that provides excellent projection, note definition, and responsive tone. Spruce is commonly used alongside Mahogany Back & Sides which offer a dry and airy tone while being clear and having a present midrange.

Low-Oval Neck Profile

The Martin D-18E Retro acoustic guitar features Martin's perfected low-oval neck profile. This neck profile allows a player to play faster licks unhindered. It gives you enough girth to hold onto but most importantly, it plays fast and smooth just like the Martin's you are used to.
