This Martin D-18 Authentic 1939 VTS has that classic rich tone and and big projection.
Wow! The first thing I noticed is how light weight this guitar is. Featuring an Adirondack spruce top that has been treated with Martin's VTS this guitar has a loud, sweet tone with incredible depth. The Mahogany back and sides really gives this guitar an articulate, focused voice. Bass is full and deep. Mids are striking and the highs are crystal clear and crisp. Strummed, this guitar fills a room. Almost sounds 3D! Flat pickers will love the way the note pop right off the fretboard. Finger style players will appreciate it subtly and overtones.
The neck is slightly beefy but very easy to play.
