The Martin D-18 is one of the best-selling acoustic guitars due to its high-quality construction and excellent tonal characteristics. The dreadnought body size and shape in combination with the solid Sitka Spruce wood top and solid mahogany side and back help to deliver tones that are not only loud and clear, but also warm with a moderate bass response. It's fun to play both in studio and on stage.
