Cutaway Martin Dreadnought with LR Baggs Electronics

With its bold dreadnought sound and comfortable cutaway, the Martin DC-18E is a traditional-styled guitar for the technical player. Its inspiration looks back to the Martin Model D-18, preferred by icons Hank Williams and Elvis Presley. Quality tonewoods — including a solid Sitka spruce top on genuine mahogany back and sides — paired with Old World construction methods make this flat top sing. The latest DC-18E features Martin's scalloped, forward-shifted X-bracing, which helps to open up the low end, and an aged-toner finish plus butterbean tuning knobs for heirloom good looks.

Traditional flat-top tone

The Martin D-18 that inspired the DC-18E has been a top choice for serious performers for decades. The guitar's combination of solid Sitka spruce and mahogany gives it a sound that sits perfectly in a mix, cutting through and holding its own without overbearing the song's other elements. Whether you're playing solo or live with a band, your DC-18E's rich tone can always be heard without fighting vocals or masking bass instruments.

A proud part of the Martin legacy

The original D-18 was the choice guitar of legends such as Clarence White, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, and many more. Even Andy Griffith played one on The Andy Griffith Show. It's been a workhorse dreadnought acoustic for singers and songwriters since its original release in 1934. The Martin DC-18E is the natural progression of this instrument that became iconic because of its tone and craftsmanship.

Onboard LR Baggs Anthem electronics

The feedback-fighting, natural-sounding LR Baggs Anthem pickup with Tru Mic technology is the result of over 30 years of research and advancement. This hybrid pickup system reproduces the natural tone of your DC-18E into an amp or sound system cleanly, clearly, and with full dynamics. Volume, Mix, and Phase controls nestle inside the soundhole for easy fingertip access. The Mix control allows you to blend between the augmented mic and undersaddle pickup to further dial in your sound.
