Martin Acoustic Guitars: D18GE Golden Era 1934

by Guitar Guru

”Designed to Make an Impact”

The Martin D-18GE Golden Era 1934 Acoustic Guitar has the perfect combination of punch and pizzazz.

Crafted to replicate the guitars of the Golden Era of guitar, this stunning beauty’s combination of solid mahogany back and sides as well as solid Adirondack spruce top give it a powerful punch that is equaled only by its beautiful craftsmanship.

Everything about the D-18GE puts the historically-minded guitarist in a nostalgic mood. From the Golden Era scalloped bracing (that shifted the solid top closer to the sound hole for free vibration) to the dovetail neck joint and V-neck shaped neck, this classic number could have stepped straight out of the 1930’s and into your hands. And little wonder that it still has the Martin attention to quality, for Martin has a reputation for having some of the best acoustic guitars for sale. At ~$3,399 - the D-18GE is worth every penny.

With a dreadnought body, the D18GE is no shrinking violet when it comes to size; it has a width and depth that some may find daunting. And the Adirondack spruce top gives the entire guitar a harder, more emphatic tone than its Sitka spruce brothers. But if you’re looking to make an impact in a big way, then the D-18GE is the guitar for you and will make the sort of impression that you could only dream of with other guitars.

Best Dread NEW
by: Anonymous

I just bought one and for me it is the best sounding Dread with the comfortable Modifie V- neck. The tone and the volume is just amazing.
I cannot put it down.
I had owned Larrivée SD-60, Martin D41, Martin D-28 CW, Martin HD 28V, R.Taylor Style 1, Santa Cruz VJ, Santa Cruz Prewar. These are very good guitars, but the D-18GE is absolutely outstanding, even for rosewood players like me...
If you can get one, go for it and check it out.
Greaut value for you hard earned money.
