A blast from the past with volume-enhancing bracing and a modern neck profile for faster play.

With the Martin HD-35 Standard Dreadnought acoustic guitar, iconic dreadnought tone and vintage vibe meet modern playability. The Martin HD-35 pairs a solid Sitka spruce top with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, projecting a bold, complex voice. Its scalloped bracing pattern shifts the X-braces slightly forward, allowing the spruce top to vibrate freely. This results in booming volume and projection, with plenty of headroom for aggressive strumming. The HD-35's vintage-inspired appointments, like herringbone binding and aging toner, give it a classic look. But its modern low oval neck profile provides a comfortable feel during long practice sessions or gigs.

Achieve Volume and Projection With Forward-Shifted Scalloped Bracing

The HD-35 Standard implements Martin's forward-shifted scalloped X-bracing pattern. By scalloping and shifting the braces slightly forward, the solid Sitka spruce top has more room to vibrate. You'll hear and feel the guitar resonate with complex overtones when strumming rhythm parts. Scalloping also allows the top to flex more easily, resulting in enhanced volume and projection that won't get drowned out on stage. The HD-35 cuts through a mix with aggressive attack and plenty of punchy midrange, thanks to this smart bracing design.

Spruce and Rosewood Create a Vintage Acoustic Tone

For its top, the HD-35 uses Sitka spruce, a tonewood cherished for its complexity, dynamic range and volume. The solid rosewood back and sides have a deep, warm sound with clear definition. Together, they create a lush, vintage acoustic voice. You'll hear sparkling highs, scooped midrange and robust low end that provides a strong rhythmic foundation. Whether fingerpicking or strumming, the HD-35 produces a bold dreadnought sound inspired by legendary flattops from the 1930s golden era.

Get Comfortable With a Modern Low Oval Neck Profile

The HD-35 Standard has a neck profile designed for modern playability, unlike many vintage-style acoustics. Its modified low oval shape feels slim and fast. Combined with a smooth satin finish, you'll find it easy to play complex chord shapes and scale runs up and down the neck during extended practice sessions without fatigue. The low oval profile provides comfort whether you're playing first position chords or soloing high up on the 20-fret ebony fingerboard. Enjoy vintage tone and a vintage vibe paired with a feel that facilitates intricate techniques.

Vintage-Inspired Appointments for an Iconic Look

With its herringbone trim, hexagon fingerboard inlays and aging toner, the HD-35 Standard has the refined style of pre-war Martin dreadnoughts. Premium details like an ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle and enclosed chrome tuners give the HD-35 Standard a high-end, collectible appeal. The all-nitrocellulose gloss finish allows the tonewoods to vibrate freely. Whether performing on stage or simply admiring its craftsmanship up close, the HD-35 Standard is a stunning acoustic guitar.
