1970 Martin D35 – £3299

SOLD  A lot of people consider the Martin D35 to be a deluxe version of a D28, which is arguably the benchmark Spruce / Rosewood dreadnought. The 3 piece Rosewood back is what makes the difference, and ultimately adds a fuller bass response. Tonally it has a very complex sound, great depth and resonance, plenty of punch and attack, and well balanced with superbly articulated clarity. Dreadnoughts are considered to be the most versatile acoustic guitars, and this example sounds great strummed or fingerpicked, and great definition and sustain when soloing. Quite simply it’s a classic, and being from 1970 makes it the first year of non Brazilian D35’s you can buy. From a playability point of view, this guitar is a treat, the neck has a great feel to it, and the action is just right. The guitar is in very good condition, with no cracks or repairs, just a few nicks and dings, and good honest playwear. It comes in a Hiscox flight case.
