Comments about Martin D-18GE Golden Era 1934 Acoustic Guitar:

Ever since I heard a friends vintage Martin D-18 when I was a teen, I wanted one for my own. To celebrate receiving my BA degree I decided it was high time to reward myself for all my hard work and get a Martin D-18 Golden Era. My husband, who doesnt play guitar, had some initial resistance to the price but changed his mind after he heard this guitar. The clear bright highs and midrange along with the outstanding, deep, clear bass of this incredible instrument warrant every accolade it has been given. There is a presence to the sound of this guitar that is quite unlike any other I have ever heard or played. Finger picking is easy and sure and flat picking makes this beauty ring like a bell. Whatever your acoustic guitar playing style might be, after you have experienced the Martin D-18 Golden Era guitar youll understand why those of us who own one are such rabid fans. Now Im eyeing the Martin Backpacker for our backpacking and camping excursions into the Sierras Give the Martin D18 GE a test drive and you wont be disappointed. In addition, if you want a guitar case that fits your instrument like a glove, pop for the Martin guitar case. Not only does it provide the optimum in protection for your Martin guitar, but it is ruggedly built and beautifully made. I feel like I have not only invested in a wonderful guitar for my own enjoyment, but this beauty will be something that I will hand down to the next generation.

Comments about Martin D-18GE Golden Era 1934 Acoustic Guitar:

I have many instruments and many amps but I would give them all away rather than part with my Martin. Music123 was outstanding-the guitar was in perfect shape. The tone of this guitar is sweet and rich with clear deep bass. The Top is so BEAUTIFUL-WOW. The thing even smells like heaven! I can't decide whether to play it,look at it or just smell that mahogany!! Take the plunge spend the bucks and live like KINGS.
