Martin Guitar is proud to introduce the DX Johnny Cash Signature Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Designed in collaboration with John Carter Cash and the Cash Foundation, this signature model pays homage to the Man in Black's famous custom all-black Martin D-35. The DX Johnny Cash features a jet-black high-pressure laminate top, back and sides and a comfortable Performing Artist neck profile. It also includes professional-grade Fishman MX electronics for a natural plugged-in tone.

Iconic Tribute to the Man in Black

With its distinctive all-black finish and custom inlays, the DX Johnny Cash is instantly recognizable as a tribute to the legendary Johnny Cash. The rosette and label feature Cash's signature, while the fingerboard is inlaid with stars and the word "CASH" at the 18th fret. This signature model allows players of all skill levels to honor Cash's important place in music history.

Professional Electronics for Stage and Studio

The Fishman MX electronics system gives the DX Johnny Cash a natural amplified tone perfect for live performance or recording. Fishman is an industry leader in acoustic amplification and their discreet undersaddle pickup captures the nuances of the guitar's tone. Volume, EQ and Body Blend controls allow players to shape their sound with ease.

A Neck Made for Playing

Martin's Performing Artist neck profile is designed for comfort during long playing sessions. Its slim, tapered shape fits smoothly in the hand, enabling intricate solos and extended jam sessions without fatigue. The 25.4" scale length is familiar to most acoustic players.

Eco-Friendly Fretboard and Classic Body

The DX Johnny Cash features an eco-friendly Richlite fretboard that is unaffected by changes in humidity. This durable and sustainable material provides a smooth playing surface and helps eliminate fret buzz. The guitar's classic Dreadnought body shape produces the projection and resonance that Martin is known for, with scalloped X-bracing for a balanced tone.
