The D-18E Modern Deluxe is packed with vintage appointments, custom features, and modern technology. A Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System(VTS) top, dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction deliver the rich, fully-aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a unique 1930s-style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock give it a look to match its sound. Ultra-modern features like a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate, boost volume without adding weight, making this a guitar players dream. Aura HD Imaging technology included in new Fishman Aura VT Blend electronics allows more control over the voice of your guitar than ever before. It offers stunning realism and delivers a new high level of performance for direct recording and live situations.
