What Flatpickers Dream Of

The Martin Custom D-35 acoustic guitar features premium tonewoods and top-notch attention to detail, giving it the sound and look of a classic and collectible Martin. All tonewoods were hand-selected by Martin's Custom Shop expert luthier Danny Brown. You get a solid East Indian rosewood back, with an absolutely beautiful quilted mahogany wedge. Solid East Indian rosewood sides enhance both looks and tone further, adorned with a premium Carpathian spruce top. The top is braced with golden-era-style spruce bracing for exceptional tonality and projection. The select hardwood neck sports a bound ebony neck, which plays as good as it looks. And with elegant touches like the grained ivoroid binding on the body, fretboard, and headstock, you've got a very original, highly collectible instrument with the Martin Custom D-35 acoustic guitar.

Great tone from premium wood

With a premium Carpathian spruce top, premium East Indian rosewood back and sides, and a select hardwood neck with ebony fretboard, the Martin Custom D-35 is a tone-lover's dream come true. The spruce top adds a sweetness to the mids while allowing the highs to ring out clearly. And balanced tone and astonishing projection abound, thanks to the Custom D-35's East Indian rosewood back and sides. A quilted mahogany wedge looks stunning, and blends nicely with the richness of rosewood. The ebony fretboard adds to your warm tone, with a touch of high end shine. Real bone at the nut and saddles maximizes string vibrational transfer across the guitar, as well as dependable performance for years.

Powerful voice from the Dreadnought body style

The powerful voice and unrivaled projection of the traditional Dreadnought body style has made it the choice of strummers and flatpickers throughout history. The naturally deep lows and crisp highs of the Dreadnought body help to balance the Custom D-35's tone across the full sonic spectrum, giving you a sound that lends itself equally well to traditional bluegrass and folk as it does to modern acoustic rock. If you're looking for a guitar that can handle agressive picking and driving rhythms, you'll appreciate the Custom D-35.

Tonal richness will enhance with age

One reason that vintage Martin guitars sound so rich and captivating is that they've had years to age and mature. Solid wood guitars flex over the years and their tone "settles in" after lots of playing, especially if hide glue is used like the on Custom D-35. The Custom D-35 sounds amazing right out of the case - but give it five or ten years, and you'll be blown away by the additional harmonic richness that develops over time.
