The new D-18 Authentic 1937 goes well beyond the already acclaimed Golden Era D-18 in faithfully replicating the specifications, materials and processes used in the construction of the original pre-war D-18s.
This hand constructed model draws its inspiration from a stellar 1937 example and employs the use of hide glue as well as a T-shaped neck reinforcement bar. Other significant features include an Adirondack red spruce top with circa 1937 contoured Adirondack bracing, a specially shaped tortoise colored pickguard, a narrow tortoise colored end piece, old Style 18 abalone position markers, grained ivoroid side.
