Well what a treat we have here folks! As the largest retailer of fine, rare and vintage Martins its not often that we get a guitar that literally takes our breath away; well this one certainly did just that!

So right from the word go its very very clear - this guitar is Not just any other D-18! The Martin D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged acoustic guitar is made the old-school way using hide glue and period-correct specifications. Martin's VTS aging system is like a time machine and imbues the premium tonewoods with the character and harmonic richness of a vintage instrument. We've spent a lot of time with Martin acoustic guitars at Art of Guitar, and this guitar delivers the complex tone you'd expect from a well-played original in spades yet with all the modern build quality you’d expect from a brand new premium instrument. Its solid premium Adirondack spruce top and mahogany back and sides provide the foundation for stunning sound, and the Martin D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged acoustic guitar will only sound better as it ages.

A new guitar that looks and sounds like it’s been played for 80 years, the Aged version of the acclaimed D-18 Authentic 1939 includes all of the goodness that comes with Martin’s Authentic Series instruments, like hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X-bracing—plus the Vintage Tone System (VTS) that ages the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. But we didn’t stop there. We’ve now taken this amazing model and methodically, painstakingly distressed it, inside and out, in all the right places. The result is a tactile, visual, and auditory experience that will transport you all the way back to the 1930s. And we know you’re going to like it there. Stock is very limited.
