Martin CS-D18-12 Limited Edition Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
Premium tone woods
You are probably already familiar with the Martin D-18 guitar, which by all counts is an amazing guitar, well, Martin decided to take it up a notch with the Custom Shop CS-D18-12. To begin with they upgraded the Sitka spruce top to Adirondack spruce and the mahogany to Belize sinker mahogany. Adirondack spruce is known for having an aged sound that requires less time to "break in". These two woods combine to create a rich, full, detailed sound. The internal scalloped bracing was even upgraded to Adirondack spruce.
Birth of an iconic guitar design
In the midst of the Great Depression, Martin managed to create two guitars that have remained incredibly popular to this day - in fact, the D-28 and the D-18 share what has become an iconic design. By introducing the dreadnought body shape into their lineup, Martin brought powerful bass and projection to guitarists - a real plus in an era before electric guitars entered the scene. The CS-D18-12 continues the Martin tradition, with premium tonewoods, components, and craftsmanship.
Martin quality since 1833
So, why does a Martin sound so good? Consider the fact that the company has been making quality instruments since 1833, and what we might consider "modern" acoustic guitars since early in the 20th century. What's more, the company's commitment to quality has never wavered, so whether you're investing in a brand-new D-18 or inheriting a family heirloom vintage Martin, you know you're getting the best. The CS-D18-12 Limited Edition acoustic guitar is an instrument that you'll want to keep for a lifetime, and you'll love Martin's uncompromising quality.
