Given Martin's VTS aging treatment and distressed to look and sound like a classic 1930's Martin.

Martin's D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged dreadnought acoustic guitar is specifically created to look and sound like it’s been your go-to guitar 80 years. This Aged version of the acclaimed D-18 Authentic 1939 includes all of the goodness that fans have come to know with Martin’s Authentic Series instruments, including traditional hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X bracing. Plus, Martin has given its solid Adirondack spruce top the Vintage Tone System (VTS) treatment to age the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. But they didn't stop there. Each D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged acoustic is methodically and painstakingly distressed, inside and out, in all the right places. The result is an amazing instrument that looks, feels and sounds like it came off a factory floor in the 1930s. This is a limited run, so don't miss out.

Case sold separately.
