    A gorgeous 12-fret dreadnought made with sinker mahogany from Belize and topped with Adirondack Spruce.

    Inspired by a 1929 Ditson 111 that resides in the C.F. Martin museum, the CS-D18-12 is a 12 fret dreadnought with a body constructed of mahogany reclaimed from rivers in Belize. Commonly referred to as "sinker mahogany," these logs sank to the bottom of a river that was used to transport them and have been lost for over 100 years. Hot hide glue was used to construct these instruments which also boast a T-bar trussrod, slotted headstock and Adirondack spruce top. Also included on the CS-D18-12 and new for 2012 is the Custom Shop Thin Finish package. This nitrocellulose finish is 40% thinner than the standard C.F. Martin nitrocellulose finish. Only 75 of these instruments will be made for the world in 2012. Includes case.

    • D-14 size
    • Solid Adirondack spruce top
    • Solid Sinker mahogany back and sides
    • Standard ''X'' scalloped top bracing
    • Solid black ebony fingerboard
    • Includes case
