Description

The new Retro series features four models: D-18E Retro, D-45E Retro, HD-28E Retro, and OM-28E Retro. Stylistically and sonically reminiscent of the iconic classic Martin guitars of the 1930's and 40's, they feature traditional non-cutaway Martin guitars incorporating significant advancements in plugged-in sound reproduction. The series exquisitely captures a sought-after sound, melding traditional models with state-of-the-art technology, and will appeal to musicians and guitar aficionados alike. Martin designers dove back into the rich history residing in the Martin museum and chose world-class examples to use as "tone donors."The D-18E Retro features a sleek, modern High Performance Neck for enhanced playability. The D-18E Retro adds a Sitka spruce top to the mahogany back and sides. Perfect for the intermediate and advanced player.
