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

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:

        The box arrived that was originally sealed with big copper staples by Martin. I carefully opened the box, removed the case with guitar. I open the case not knowing what to expect as it was bought sight unseen. I open the case and was immediately hit with the smell of rosewood while my eyes gazed upon a gorgeous flawless work of art. I removed the guitar, tuned it up and was swept away with the huge, harmonically-rich tone. The action was absolutely perfect out of the case (low). It was so comfortable to play I thought the strings were light gauge 11's, but a micrometer confirmed they were medium 13's.

        The only thing I will swap out is the bridge pins and end piece. They are plastic. I will replace them with bone or titanium. If you do the same, make sure that the taper is 5 degrees, size 2A.

        This is not my first Martin. I've had a D-28 and D-35S. The last time I owned one was in 1985. The great quality is still the same. What a great guitar from a great company!

          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....

            This guitar really is loud;an with the quarter inch bracing it really rings. This guitar is the best kept secret in the Martinline up. Thats why I called it a sleeper.

            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!
