REVEALING THE NEW D-18 JASON ISBELL

Thu, 06/29/2017 - 05:00

After much speculation, we are so excited to debut the new D-18 Jason Isbell guitar!

Martin Ambassador Jason Isbell worked with the Martin Guitar Custom Shop to design his new Custom Signature Edition D-18 which is closely modeled after Martin’s Golden Era series. The model boasts a pre-aged Vintage Tone System (VTS) Adirondack spruce top; mahogany back and sides; and rear-shifted scalloped bracing which produces more natural volume and a clear powerful tone. 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 pick guard - all design details that have one common goal – to make it loud.

Come fall 2017 you will be able to get your very own D-18 Jason Isbell guitar at an authorized Martin dealer, by finding a certified online Martin dealer, or exploring the buy from factory program.
