D-18 StreetLegend Guitar
CHF 2'999.00

No other guitar company has been around and inspiring the evolution of the acoustic guitar for as long as C. F. Martin & Co. and no other acoustic guitar companies designs have been copied as much as theirs. So the Martin Standard Series aren’t just called that – this is the standard that everything else is measured by. Highest quality, tried and true tonewoods, spruce tops and genuine mahogany or East Indian rosewood back and sides – needless to say, all solid – make these guitars an absolute dream for any guitarist. Many of these original Martin shapes have been out there for over a century and all of them have undergone continuous tweaks and improvements over time. These guitars are the result of almost 190 years of Martin history.

Most of us know, what a D-18 Standard is. It's great, it's big, it's loud, it's wonderful and it's been around for a long time.
The great volume and punchy midrange of the D-18 are the result of its shape and size, combination of a spruce top with genuine mahogany back and sides and scalloped bracings.
With this model, however, what's new is that it looks old! For the first time Martin offers an aged look on standard series models. The StreetLegend™ is satin finished and then the top is treated to an aging process, inspired by the looks of some of the wonderful, hystoric instruments in the Martin museum.
The Martin D-18 StreetLegend™ is the guitar for those who want a full-fledged D-18 Standard but prefer a nice, good old rough look!
