C.F. Martin & Co. Custom Shop CS-D 14 fret D-18 model. Adirondack (Red) Spruce top and Sinker Mahogany back & sides. Otherworldly Mahogany Dreadnought!
We have chosen 2 Martin Custom Shop D-18's (Adirondack Red Spruce / Figured Sinker Mahogany) from a very limited Custom Shop run. Sinker Mahogany is in no way lesser in tone, brilliance, complexity and richness than any piece of Rosewood: Sinker Mahogany is very stiff & hard, very resonant, rich and versatile
The 2 Adirondack (Red) Spruce / Sinker Mahogany D-14 fret sound very different. They both have their own distinctive character and tone, and you might find it extremely hard to chose between the two. In any case, these Sinker Mahogany Dreadnoughts are in a league of their own......otherworldly!
