Limited run of D-35s features Martin's new Vintage Tone System for the tone and look that made the original so special.

Martin continues to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their beloved D-35 model with the introduction of the D12-35 50th Anniversary Limited Edition model. This celebratory edition is a 12-string, solid headstock Dreadnought limited to a quantity of 183, the quantity of the first 1965 production run. This modern interpretation of the original model includes a European spruce top with Martin' Vintage Tone System (VTS) and 3-piece East Indian rosewood back and sides. Martin enthusiasts worldwide will want to add this beauty to their collection.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin' craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

    Comments about Martin D12-35 50th Anniversary Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Years ago I had a Martin D12-35 to match the D35 I owned. Lack of money forced me to part with that guitar, and I was always sorry, because it isn't a model that Martin had consistently offered for sale. When this one came up, I mulled it over for a while, but finally bought it, and I am glad I did. It will replace my D12-28. I like the tone much better, and the playability of the smaller scale neck is unsurpassed in a 12-string. I don't have to use my hand like a C-clamp to get tough chords not to buzz -- it's just smooth and natural to play.
