Martin

Sublime natural Martin tone, fabulous Martin looks.

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.

Features

  • 3-piece rosewood back
  • Rosewood sides
  • Dreadnought body
  • Solid Sitka spruce top
  • Black and white rosette
  • 24-fret Ebony fingerboard
  • Exclusive Martin bracing pattern
  • Herringbone top trim
  • White binding
  • Two zigzag back strips
  • Includes hardshell case

If you want genuine Martin tone, you have to play a genuine Martin. Make this one yours today.

      Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

      A very, very good guitar. I'm not going to throw out a bunch of superlatives about this guitar, there is no real need to, and if you have ever played one you know it's the real deal. If you are looking to buy a top-end solid wood construction acoustic, the Martin HD-35 should probably be on your short list. I'm not sure you could get anything much better for vocal accompaniment, and that was my main attraction to it. Tonally, it is well balanced, with excellent response from soft to heavy dynamics. Nicely compliments the brighter sound of my duet partner's Taylor. A little more pricey than some models but you might want to give one a try. I absolutely love mine.

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        The finest guitar I've ever played (that I can afford) I've owned mine for about 2 years now. It's an absolute cannon. Just beautiful and even across the strings. I powered mine with a K&K Mini Trinity system and I use Martin Lifespan strings (light). I play this guitar EVERY day and it just keeps getting better. I played a D41 a little bit ago, but it didn't have the presence that this one does. I love the HDs. I also own a HD 16LSH (my road guitar). I'd put this guitar up against any guitar in the upper price range. For the money, there is none better....not even close.

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        I have had several Martin guitars in the past including the Martin D-35. The HD-35 is much more than a better looking D-35. The sound is clearly deeper and richer than the D-35 in my opinion. It is awesome and makes me sound far better than my current skill level. Don't hesitate if you are considering this guitar. It doesn't disappoint.

        Awesome Guitar

        By Charles Harvey

        from Northern Colorado

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        The construction is flawless and the guitar is so playable it almost plays itself. It has a sound that is rich and full, and a range that allows playing from delicate softness to a barking roar.
        The Martin HD35 has all the features of the std. D35, the 3 piece back and bound fingerboard. It also has the herringbone pattern around the edge of the box and slightly different scalloped braces on the top.
        There are no flaws in this guitar - the craftsmanship is superb.
        This guitar is expensive and worth it. It was built with very high production standards and a sound everyone else wants to copy.

        Of course....it's a Martin

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        I've got my HD35 as a 10th Anniversary gift in 1995. I had the luxury of playing 6 different HD35 guitar and picking out the one I wanted. They all were excellent. The sound just unbelievably projects from this guitar. It has a full, rich, deep, mellow tone unlike any other guitar I've played or heard. My buddy has a top end Taylor and it blows it away in every category of sound. I find myself almost having to play softer so I do not drown him out. Way more solid than any other guitar in the price range and worth every penny you spend. I would highly recommend this guitar. You will not be sorry.

        A Great Guitar

        By Styx-CMWuk

        from Detroit, Michigan

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        I just bought a Martin HD-35 and it is one great guitar. I have played guitar for over 30 years. I own a Guild F50R and a Daion Carabou as well as a few electric guitars. I love all of them but this new martin HD-35 has just taken me over. The bass tones are not muddy at all and the treble tones ring out clearly. I strum one single chord in normal tuning and I hear tones and overtones as if I were playing with Joni Mitchell tuning. Every string can be heard in equal volume. I am amazed. This guitar draws me and is quickly becoming my main axe....

        Owner for almost 20 Years

        By Oklahoma Andy

        from Norman, OK

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        I bought my HD-35 back in April of 1985. It has never disappointed me. It sounds great it plays easy and it just makes me sound good. People are always amazed by the sound. I just smile and say, "It's a Martin." That is all you can really say.Before the HD-35 I owned a Laguna guitar, a hand crafted guitar in it's own right but the differences are like night and day. The HD-35 has a big booming voice, it just rings. I love it!

        Last acoustic I will ever buy

        By BLiNKx86

        from San Diego, CA

        Comments about Martin Standard Series HD-35 Acoustic Guitar:

        No other guitar I have played has such a full bottom. This guitar also projects VERY well... playing it you have no idea how far the sound carries in front of you.
