Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 2007 Martin D-18 GE Golden Era 1934 Dreadnought! This is a great example of a modern guitar that celebrates the Golden Era of Martin guitar making and it's ready for you to break it in. This is a tremendous playing dreadnought - the kind you just want to throw your right hand into strumming over and over again. Simply playing first position chords is such a treat you may forget to pick up your left hand and start burning through the rest of the neck! Once you do that, however, you may need to call work and tell them you're not coming in for a few days - this guitar is hard to put down. It's set up great right now with low action, great intonation and no buzzing anywhere. The tone is clear, crisp, deep and warm with huge bass a enough volume to cut through any playing situation. The projection this guitar offers is off the charts. A lot of players would consider a guitar like this the end of road, never needing to even think about picking up another. It couldn't play any better and it sounds like gold.

Item Details

This 2007 Martin D-18GE ( Golden Era ) is all original right down to the fossil ivory nut and is modeled after the 1934 D-18. A solid Adirondack Spruce top joins solid genuine Mahogany sides and back to create an immensely sturdy foundation for the scalloped 5/16" Golden Era bracing that is "forward shifted" closer to the soundhole. This allows for the strings to vibrate more freely and helps to increase the already powerful volume of this dreadnought. The mahogany soft V shaped neck is a pleasure to play in all positions. If that wasn't enough, this beauty has a world class K&K Pure Western pickup installed in it that just sounds wonderful and is a no hassle, plug in and play passive system. Other fine appointments include the ebony fretboard and bridge, abalone dot inlays, 1 3/4" nut width, Brazilian rosewood headplate and tortoise pickguard. This D-18GE comes with it's original Martin hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This 2007 Martin D-18GE is in very good to excellent condition. It is in excellent playing condition. The only cosmetic blips of note are a few light pick scratches on the top, mostly on the pick guard but some in the strike zone and pre-strike zone. They're light and you don't really see them unless you go looking for them. There is some roughing to the finish around the end pin / pickup input jack from an over zealous strap, but nothing anyone would notice from the front row. The back and neck are quite clean and the frets are in excellent condition.

This is a plug in and play Martin D-18GE that celebrates the best in Martin craftsmanship. The volume and tone from this dread are enough to make your mouth water. The on board K&K pickup make it a no-brainer rig that's perfect for the real world. Giddy up!
