OVERVIEW

A modern take on the classic D-18 that was the instrument of choice for Hank Williams.

The warm tones of the genuine mahogany back and sides, combined with a Sitka spruce top, make this Martin Standard Series DC-18E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar model truly sing. Besides its popular tonewood pairing and body shape, some of its charm lies in the solid black ebony fingerboard and bridge, tortoise color binding and matching pick guard adorn. With this model, Martin is also introducing Fishman's Aura VT Enhance electronics on this which uses the extremely advanced technology with discreet, soundhole-mounted controls for volume and tone. This preserves the pure and unique acoustic tone of each model.

Includes hardshell case.

Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification system
The Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification system is like nothing you have ever heard before. Powered by a revolutionary technology, the Fishman Aura VT Enhanced offers the most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging available to date.

Martin has been making the finest acoustic guitars for 183 years. Each instrument goes through 100’s of hand-crafted step to produce an instrument that is not only prized for its sound and tone, but cherished by many of the most noted professional musicians and collectors in the world. It was the goal of Martin’s CEO and Chairman, Chris Martin IV, to have Fishman create a system that amplified the sound of a Martin guitar, exactly as it is being played. The R&D team was tasked to create a system that preserved the unique and pristine acoustic tone of each instrument. Imagine plugging your acoustic guitar in and hearing your performance amplified, exactly as you hear it played live. 

What’s under the top?
Both the Aura VT Enhance with Acoustic Imaging and the Matrix VT Enhance feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the tone of the guitar.

A Sound That Raises the Standard of Excellence
The Aura VT Enhanced and Matrix VT Enhanced are unobtrusive, with no controls or holes cut into the side of the guitar. The easy-to-use Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls are mounted inside the soundhole for convenient access during performance. The resulting sound quality meets the Martin standard of excellence with an unmatched sound and responsiveness to touch and playing.
