Production of the Martin D-19 began in 1976 and ended in 1988. The Martin D-19 was essentially a D-18 but with a dark brown stained top - from a distance it looks like a mahogany top but it's actually spruce. The other differences between the D-18 and D-19 were that the D-19  had a style 28 rosette, style 21 top purfling and an additional white/black purfling on the back.
