Hi, all. I recently acquired a D-18VS 175th Anniversary Model. I was in touch with CF Martin, and they told me that it was shipped to a store in the US. I bought it from a dealer in England (I live in Northern Ireland). Martin also told me that there were only 33 D-18VS models made in 2008. That's not many, so I'm on a quest to see how many I can locate. Do you own one of these beauties? Did anyone out ther actually own my guitar - serial number: 1302321? You never know!!
I would also be interested to hear what folks think of this particular model. I love mine!!
I also own an OM28V and a D-16GT with a lovely sunburst top. My other guitars are: Guild GAD 30E, Fairclough Star Parlour (made in England and designed by Steve Fairclough) and an old 70s Japanese Yamaki dreadnought.
It looks like my Diston with a different pick guard. I love my Ditson, it is booming,loud and clear clear toned guitar and I love the 1 7/8 inch nut.
