Richly resonant with a classic, satin-finished design.

The Martin D-18 Satin acoustic guitar delivers the full, balanced tone that made Martin famous. Its mahogany back and sides provide rich, punchy bass and lush midrange, while the solid spruce top offers crisp trebles and articulate note definition. The satin finish enhances resonance for more complexity and responsiveness. With Martin's modified low oval neck profile, the D-18 Satin feels smooth and comfortable in your hands. It has an ebony fingerboard and bridge for bright, clear tones. Under the hood, forward-shifted scalloped X-bracing supports the top while allowing it to vibrate freely. The result is impressive projection, sustain and harmonic richness.

Iconic Dreadnought Body Shape Produces Full, Projective Tone

The D-18 Satin's dreadnought body produces the balanced, muscular tone that made Martin famous. With its wide lower bout and sloping shoulders, it pumps out deep lows, rich mids and clear treble notes. The large soundboard area projects your playing with power and presence, filling the room with immersive acoustic sound. Whether you strum chords or pick single notes, the D-18 Satin's dreadnought body gives your music a bold, dynamic character.

Mahogany Back and Sides Offer Rich Bass and Balanced Mids

The D-18 Satin has back and sides made of solid mahogany, which provides a warm, woody character. The mahogany produces fat lows, mellow mids and balanced overtones. This gives chords a rich, complex sound with lush sustain. Single notes ring out with thickness and resonance. The mahogany back and sides make the D-18 Satin ideal for rhythm playing, adding body and girth to your acoustic accompaniment.

Spruce Top Provides Crisp Trebles and Articulation

With its Sitka spruce top, the D-18 Satin delivers crisp, detailed trebles and note articulation. The tightly grained spruce has a lightweight stiffness that allows the top to freely vibrate. This results in clean transient attack, helping notes pop out. Spruce also has bright overtones that shimmer with melodies and riffs. Chords ring with clarity and definition. The solid spruce top gives the D-18 Satin the punch and presence to cut through a mix.

Satin Finish Enhances Resonance and Feel

The D-18 Satin has a smooth satin finish on its top, back and sides. Unlike glossy lacquers, satin enhances a guitar's natural resonance by minimizing dampening. This allows the woods to freely vibrate, increasing sustain, complexity and harmonic content. Notes bloom with more nuance and texture. The satin feel is also extremely comfortable and fast, letting your fingers move smoothly across the neck. The D-18 Satin's satin finish looks sleek while providing a resonant, organic acoustic tone.
