2018 Martin Custom shop D18 #2377235 “Sinker Mahogany” Series

Twangcentral Guitars


Got hold of this from a friend of mine, who knows his Martin’s…Im stealing the original poetic listing here and I hope they don’t mind😎 “Fresh in from Nazareth, Pennsylvania is the CF Martin Custom Shop Dreadnought. 
With an incredible Adirondack Spruce top you get a really dynamic and vibrant tone. Pair that with the Sinker Mahogany back and sides, and you have a tonal dream team, it’s visually and tonally stunning. Sinker Mahogany is the talk of the industry at the moment, this Mahogany was felled roughly 300 years ago before being floated downstream with the intention of building vast ships. The less buoyant logs often sunk to the bottom and were preserved by a lack of oxygen and a torrent of river silt; these logs have a density that is perfect for guitar building. These logs are now being re-harvested and are an incredibly in demand luxury timber.
The neck is an absolute dream to play. With a Modified Low Oval neck shape, 16" radius, 25.4" scale length and a 1 3/4" nut width, this Martin is supremely comfortable and smooth underhand. The Black Ebony fingerboard is the perfect partner for this neck; beautifully crafted its a real treat to play.
We have a selection of some of the rarest and coolest Martin guitars money can buy. So, if you're looking for something truly unique, you need to check us out!” If that doesn’t get your attention 🤷‍♂️
