Martin’s new D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged includes all of the cool features 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 they didn’t stop there. Then Martin takes this model and methodically, painstakingly distresses 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.
