Martin 2018 Custom Shop D-14

The Custom Shop D-14: Exquisite Tonewoods for Outstanding Sound

The Martin 2018 Custom Shop D-14 is a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication that goes into creating exceptional acoustic guitars. It boasts an Adirondack Spruce top, renowned for its clarity and projection, paired with Ziricote back and sides. This tonewood combination produces a balanced, resonant, and articulate sound that captures the essence of Martin's legendary instruments.

Attention to Detail and Elegance

Every aspect of this guitar is designed with meticulous attention to detail. The Adirondack Scalloped 5/16" Golden Era bracing, rear-shifted for optimal resonance, ensures that the guitar delivers incredible volume and sustain. The Style 28 Diamond/Square inlay, Grained Ivoroid, and Marquis Style 28 rosette, as well as the faux tortoise pickguard, enhance the instrument's visual appeal.

Performance-Oriented Design

The Martin D-14 features a Genuine Mahogany 12/4 neck with a Performing Artist profile, providing a comfortable and smooth playing experience. The 25.34" scale length and 1-3/4" nut width offer versatility for various playing styles. The Short Pattern Diamond & Squares Select Abalone inlays on the black ebony fingerboard add a touch of elegance and sophistication to this remarkable instrument.

High-Quality Hardware and Finish

Gotoh Nickel tuners with Butterbean knobs ensure precise and stable tuning, while the modern belly-style bridge with a drop-in saddle, made of ebony, contributes to the guitar's exceptional tone. The bone nut and saddle further enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain. The gloss finish not only protects the instrument but also accentuates its visual allure. The Martin D-14 includes a hardshell case to keep your investment safe and sound.
