A classic design and build to give you a classic Martin sound.

The new Authentics from Martin are constructed in the traditional Martin way - with hide glue throughout, and historically accurate detailing confirmed by using a CAT scan machine located at the Smithsonian Institute. Based on a 1939 D-18 in Martin's museum, this guitar features mahogany back and sides, an Adirondack spruce top, and uses an authentic circa 1939 bracing pattern. Period-correct "18" Authentic-style appointments, with an Authentic neck barrel and heel, complete this piece.

Comes with 545V Harptone case.
