Musikmesse 2017: Martin Guitar to unveil new Dreadnaught and Standard Series models

Above: The DSTG. Below: The 0-18.

Guitarists will be able to get hands-on with two new Dreadnaughts, as well as the new concert-sized 0-18.

Martin Guitar will unveil a classic 0-18 and two new Dreadnought models at this year’s Musikmesse.

The DST and DSTG add even greater accessibility to Martin’s Dreadnought legacy by offering two great sounding and highly affordable D models that can ship internationally without delay.

The DST and DSTG will have premium features like forward-shifted braces, and ebony fingerboards and bridges.

Available in satin or full gloss finish, the solid-wood sapele/sitka DST and DSTG have a tortoise coloured headplate, binding and heel cap.

Designed with the European market in mind, each classic Dreadnought is equipped with Martin Studio Performance (SP) strings for ultimate resonance and tone, and arrives in a padded gig bag.

The new 0-18 is a welcome addition to the Standard Series, and has a scallop-braced Sitka spruce top with mahogany back and sides that serve as the foundation for this concert-sized model.

The combination of a short expressive 24.9” scale with a modified low oval neck shape and the high performance parallel taper allows for easy action and fast playability. Open geared nickel tuners with phosphor bronze strings and an ebony fingerboard and bridge complete the look of this classic parlor guitar.
