Martin Dreadnought
The very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916. After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martin’s iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.

I purchased this fine instrument recently and could not be more satisfied. Mine came equipped with the new striped ebony and bone nut and saddle. Compared to the pre-2003 models, the new D-35 sounds even better because of the bone. The quality of the guitar is top notch and feels very solid. The finish is flawless and could not get any better! If you are looking for a high end guitar to play for the rest of your life, then buy this one. Hands down, it is the most responsive and best sounding for the price.

      Play as many as you can

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D-35 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I must have reviewed and looked at dozens of guitars before I decided on the D-35. I love the big dreadnought sound, the clarity and articulation, the rich low end that doesn't overpower the rest of the frequencies...the list goes on and on. That being said, it's very true that every one of these guitars sounds a little different. I played as many as I could get my hands on, going to different guitar centers and various other shops, and I finally found "the one". Beautiful dark East Indian Rosewood 3-piece back, and a tone that I would say is the best I've ever played. This guitar does not disappoint. It is the real deal. Just if you can, play multiple to find the right one for you.

      Still working on getting my callus' and fingers up to speed for an acoustic, but so far it sounds great, I can't wait until it ages up a bit and gets even sweeter sounding.

      It's Special

      By John Freeman

      from Montreal, Canada

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D-35 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      It's special The D-35 is much more than an expensive guitar. It's a high end Martin Dreadnought, hand made - crafted. I paid $1000 for mine, 34 years ago. I didn't really know what I was doing back then but it's the best move I ever made. It taught me what it's like to play a flawless instrument for most of my musical life. It is a very well made, high quality musical instrument, imo amoung the best in the world. The sound it produces is outstanding. But, if you are a casual player like I was years ago, then don't expect it to be an easy guitar to play. That is not what the price is about. I found it best with medium gage strings. Light gage won't make it sing like medium gage and some brands of strings surprisingly made it sound awful. It is very sensitive to the strings I put on it, no doubt normal behavior for a quality string instrument. So I stuck to Martin strings. With medium gage the action is stiff, so prepare yourself for a workout. It can be a very demanding instrument. Once I got conditioned physically well enough to play it (OK, I was young), every moment justified the price tag and the guitar delivered, flawlessly. This guitar is superb for recording. Mine always sounds fabulous regardless of the recording equipment, from old 1970's hand-held cassette recorders to modern audio interfaces, it always sounds wonderful - sings. I guess when the source is that good everything else is moot. The post from Brazil is correct, this guitar sings. That is precisely how I described mine for years and I'm not surprised to see another owner say it. I still have an article from a 1980 magazine showing the craftsmen at Martin using draw knives to carve the necks by hand. For the guy in Brazil - iirc, the sitka spruce used in the D-35's sound board comes from coastal British Columbia, Canada, and on the average it takes two sitka spruce trees (600 feet?) to find the right wood to make one sound board. That's why the D-35 has such outstanding resonance and tone and why it's so expensive. It's sound board is very high quality, perhaps the best in the world. I like my other guitars but I just love my D-35, it is special, in every way.

      King of Beasts

      By Donald Geeze

      from Albuquerque, NM

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D-35 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      First, I have to thank the Albuquerque Guitar Center for graciously allowing me to trade the Gibson D-45TV that my well-intended wife bought me for Christmas for the Martin. The Gibson sounded great when played softly, but the workmanship was horrible and it felt like it was going to break every time I touched it. It also couldn't tolerate aggressive picking. The D-35 is simply the finest guitar I've ever touched. Flawless and rugged construction, beautiful and simple design, and sound that is overwhelming. I use steel fingerpicks, and this is the only guitar I've ever played that handles what I dish out and asks for more. The medium strings take a little getting used to and probably turn some people off when they play it in the store compared to light stringed models, but the sound it produces is worth building your callouses for. And the bass...sometimes I just want to play the E and A strings and nothing else. I've never named a guitar before, but "Beast" popped into my mind when playing recently. It fits. I feel like I own the ultimate guitar.

      Clear choice!!!

      By Guy Catalano

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D-35 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      It was between the D-35 and D-28 from what I had been reading. So off to GC to try both. Although the D-28 had that great Martin sound, it was quite noticeably darker and less vibrant than the 35 (IMHO). Unlike the 28, The D-35 sound was almost 3-dimensional and clearly projected a rich and full-bodied sound in all ranges. Individual notes were punchier and well rounded, and the bass was much fuller. It didn't take long for me to settle on the 35 - hands down.

      Can't go wrong with a Martin D-35

      By RD Sims

      from Birmingham, AL

      Comments about Martin Standard Series D-35 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I purchased my Martin D-35 in 1993 after working my way thru a number of D-18's, 28's and 35's. The guitar has an incredible tone that has only gotten better with age. It plays with such ease that it is really hard to put it down. Buy one. You'll love it!
