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.


Martins take on this incredible guitar

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.

Get down to Art of Guitar today to try out this incredible guitar; stocks were very limited so this won’t last long!
