From the Martin Custom Shop comes this, a Dreadnought Body 18 Style acoustic guitar. Drawing cues from a flagship Martin guitar, this 18 Style Dreadnought can be pictured as your favorite legacy acoustic handcrafted with individually selected tonewoods, made by hand with exquisite attention to detail. It truly is an instrument made to be played, cherished, and handed down to the next generation as the years go by.
This particular Custom Shop Dreadnought features an Adirondack Spruce top and Sinker Mahogany back and sides. Its two piece back showcases a gorgeous grain pattern, multi dimensional in certain reflections.
If you are a player that is a fan of elegance through understatement in an instrument, you may be in the right place with this Martin Custom Shop piece. Stylistic appointments on this are simple yet detailed. The body features brown faux tortoise binding, a faux tortoise pickguard to match, as well as an Old Style 18 Boltaron rosette. The top, back, and sides are finished with a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, while the neck - a modified low oval profile - receives a satin finish.
This Dreadnought's fingerboard and bridge are comprised of black ebony, a staple wood utilized on Nazareth, PA-made Martin guitars. Its abalone inlays are fashioned in Martin's Old Style 18 pattern. Lastly, an aging toner finish is applied to the Adirondack Spruce top for an ever so slightly weathered appearance.
The Martin Custom Shop never ceases to amaze with each piece we at Russo Music are thrilled to offer. This Style 18 Dreadnought is of course no exception, and will make for an excellent musical companion for many years to come.
