OVERVIEW

An icon re-envisioned for the modern player.

The Martin D-35 dreadnought acoustic guitar was birthed during the folk music boom of the 1960s. Designed in 1965, the D-35 was created because Martin was experiencing a shortage of rosewood wide enough to build their famous D-28. Known for its three-piece back, with a contrasting center wedge, the D-35 quickly caught on with musicians that preferred the cosmetic look of a three-piece back. Along with the cosmetic changes to the appearance, the D-35 offered a different sound and tone to the famous D-28.

Constructed with 1/4” bracing, the D-35 had a slight bump in the bottom end when compared to the stiffer 5/16” bracing of the D-28. Over time, players really began to latch on to the tonal variation, and as a result, the D-35 quickly became an industry standard among players and collectors alike.

Today, the D-35E-Z Standard Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has been refined to combine the best of the vintage 1930's appointments with the playability of a modern guitar.

Like the D-35 from the 1960s, the bracing is 1/4" in thickness, but the placement of the X brace has been forward shifted to be located one inch from the soundhole. Now, the D-35E-Z Standard Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a very even bass, with just the right blend of the mid and high-end frequencies. The sound is everything you would expect from a fine-tuned Martin acoustic guitar.

Playability has been dramatically improved on this model by changing the neck to a modified low oval, with a Performing Artist taper and 1-3⁄4” nut. The wider string spacing and comfortable neck profile allow a player to move up and down the neck with ease. And, unlike the more traditional acoustic guitars of the past, the D-35E-Z Standard Dreadnought will have that vintage tone, with a feel that will be similar to that of an electric guitar.

Other Appointments
