Taking its leave from the legend that is the D-35, the Martin HD-35 offers a Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood back & sides, along with a bound fingerboard and a top finished with Martin’s herringbone inlay. This all adds up to a guitar that’s perfect for intermediate to advanced players, with its full Martin tone and strong bass.
Crafted to the popular dreadnought shape, the body of the Martin HD-35 Acoustic Guitar is constructed from sold tonewoods, with solid sitka spruce used for the top and Solid East Indian rosewood for the back & sides.
A particularly hard wood the sitka spruce offers a substantial amount of projection, along with its bright tone and accentuation in the bass and treble. It has also been constructed to last, with a standard ''X'' scalloped bracing pattern and 1/4'' solid sitka spruce braces.
Along with its stunning aesthetics, being a defined grain with a dark red/purple tinted hue, the solid East Indian rosewood back & sides further enhance the Martin HD35 Acoustic Guitar’s tone to offer a rich bass and clear treble response.
Extra refinements that make the Martin HD-35 standout include a white boltaron binding, polished gloss top, back & sides, and a tortoise-colour pickguard.
Carved to a very playable low-profile shape, the select hardwood neck of the Martin HD-35 Acoustic measures 1-11/16'' at the nut, and 2-1/8'' at the twelfth fret, and has been satin-finished.
Topping the neck is a 20-fret, solid black ebony fingerboard with a white boltaron binding, to match the body. This lies between a bone nut and a solid black ebony bridge with a 16'' radius, compensated bone saddle, and has a scale length of 25.4”. The Martin HD-35 is fitted with a solid, square taper headstock with a solid East Indian rosewood headplate adorned with the Martin logo shining in raised gold foil, whilst at either side are chrome enclosed tuners with large buttons.
