Overview

If you love good ol' fashioned down home music, than Jason Isbell may already be a familiar name. If not, he was a guitarist and vocalist for popular alt-country/rockers Drive-By Truckers for six years. While DBT has had plenty of success with and without Isbell, he's also had his own share of successes, including becoming a Grammy Award-winner as a singer-songwriter in his own right (2016's Best Americana Album Something More Than Free and Best American Roots Song for the song "24 Frames"). The Alabama native worked with the Custom Shop at Martin Guitar to design this Custom Signature Edition D-18 which is closely modeled after Martin’s Golden Era series. The model boasts an Adirondack spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides. Jason and Martin gave it rear-shifted scalloped bracing so it would generate more natural volume while producing clear, powerful tone. Similar to Martin’s Authentic series guitars, it is constructed using hide glue which, unlike newer synthetic reproductions, dissolves into the grain of the wood and creates more resonance throughout the instrument. Isbell chose a thin finish and left off the pickguard - all design details that have one common goal – to make this guitar ring louder. Isbell also added a personal touch with the inclusion of a custom inlay of one of his personal tattoos at the twelfth fret. When you want to plug in, the D-18 Jason Isbell Custom Signature Edition has a Fishman Infinity Matrix endpin-mounted preamp built in for solid live performances.

Includse a hardshell case.
