some info and specs from Martin
An American classic Introduced in 1931, the D-18 is the original 14-fret Martin dreadnought and still one of our most popular instruments -- especially among studio musicians. The combination of light, quartersawn mahogany sides and back, and large Dreadnought size produces an exceptionally well-balanced tone.
The D-18 is loud, with a bright, clear treble and warm, moderate bass, which makes it ideal for both recording and stage work. Features include solid spruce top, rosewood bridge and fingerboard, black binding and pickguard, hand-shaped genuine mahogany neck, and chrome enclosed tuners. With a boosted midrange and tonally even highs and lows, this guitar will cut through most small acoustic ensembles. Hear the difference mahogany makes in the D-18!
