Martin Custom Shop D-18 VTS, Ebony Fretboard, Natural

~Guitar shown is the actual guitar that you will receive, Serial #: #2211856~

Understated looks, timeless tone. The warm tone of mahogany and authentic VTS Sitka spruce couple with resonant scalloped bracing under the hood for a sound that's honest, authoritative, and clear. Vintage details like open-geared tuners and classic 18-style appointments pair with a modern, low profile neck for an old-soul sound in a brand-new body.

"The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage Guitar but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments."
