Subject: RE: Tech: D18 Martin / D18 golden era martin
The D18 V and GE both have a modified V neck and that's comfortable for some, uncomfortable for others. The standard D18 has the contemporary neck. The sound difference between standard and GE is, to my ears, remarkable. But it may not make much difference to you unless you are trying to imitate that older D18 sound -- that woody, dry sound.

I've played many standard models that were just peachy.
