The very first Dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by Martin Guitar in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. After Ditson went out went out of business in the early 1930's, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 Dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would later become the D-18 and D-28 models.

Limited to only 100 guitars, the D-222 celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the Martin Dreadnought. This 12-fret Dreadnought has a Sitka spruce top with Martin's Vintage Tone System. It includes mahogany back and sides, a slotted head stock, and ebony fingerboard and bridge.
