Standard series solid spruce top dreadnought acoustic guitar with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, herringbone trim, and bound ebony fingerboard. Includes a Martin vinyl laminated hardshell guitar case. The HD-35 acoustic guitar combines Martin’s visually striking 3-piece back design with many of the prewar features of the legendary herringbone D-28. Tonally, the guitar’s rosewood back produces a strong bass, making it ideal for rhythm playing. The top is constructed of solid Sitka spruce and braced with scalloped 1/4″ high-performance braces to deliver big, open tones. Includes case. Martin DreadnoughtThe very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916. After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martin’s iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.
The HD-35 is another gem of the Martin line, thanks to expert craftsmanship as only Martin can produce.
