Frankfurt Musikmesse: Martin Guitar Expands Standard Series & Introduces 2 New Dreadnought Models at 2017

C.F. Martin & Co. ® (Martin Guitar) will unveil a classic 0-18 and two new Dreadnought models this spring at the 2017 Musikmesse held in Frankfurt Germany from April 5-8. 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.

DST and DSTG- Premium features like forward-shifted braces, ebony fingerboard and bridge, and bone nut and saddle add sonic complexity to these value-priced Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania Dreadnoughts. Available in satin or full gloss finish, the solid-wood sapele/sitka DST and DSTG have a tortoise colored 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 arrive in a padded gig bag.

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