The Martin Dreadnought D18

The very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand.

After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin presented the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing design that would quickly end up being Martin’s renowned D-18 and D-28 models.

Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has demonstrated just what an acoustic guitar can and must be!  It has actually become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.
