1968 CF Martin & Co. D-18 Acoustic Guitar

⭕ Along with its Rosewood counterpart, the D-28, the Martin D-18 stands as one of the true original dreadnoughts introduced by Martin in 1932. The D-18 made a switch from a 12-fret to a 14-fret instrument in 1934 and has stayed largely the same since, with just the occasional change in wood source or cosmetic detail. Since the D-18 uses Mahogany instead of Rosewood, it is thought to have a somewhat crisper sound with more definition the top-end.

Years of Production: 1932 - present

Specific to this Era: D-18 largely the same since the late 40s. Since 1966, body binding is Black plastic instead of Tortoise. In 1967, pickguard also makes same change.

Body Style: Dreadnought

Wood Composition: Mahogany back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, 1-piece mahogany neck

Notable Players: Elvis Presley, Doc Watson, Clarence White, Andy Griffith, David Crosby
