At Martin Guitars handcrafted instruments built with superior tonewoods and innovative designs represent the high standard for which they are revered. Standard series guitars feature Sitka Spruce tops with Mahogany or Rosewood backs and sides, giving them a massive bottom end with articulate highs and balanced mids. Martin Standard Series guitars continue the tradition of vintage styling and elegant craftsmanship that have made playing a Martin an amazing experience.
The left handed Martin D-35 Standard Series Dreadnought features a distinctive 3-piece back with an antique white binding around the fingerboard which sets it apart from other models in the Standard Series. Pairing Sitka Spruce top with East Indian Rosewood back and sides in a classic Dreadnought body shape, the D-35 delivers the volume and warm, complex tone that has made it the choice of many fine strummers and pickers including Johnny Cash and Seth Avett.
Aside from the classic tone of the left handed Martin D-35, another reason players from a wide array of musical backgrounds have chosen the D-35 is its playability. Featuring a modern, modified oval neck shape with a high performance taper, with an Ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays and Plek-Pro dressed frets, the new southpaw D-35 delivers perfect string tension and precise tone under all playing conditions.
Other premium appointments including an ebony bridge with compensated bone saddle, an all bone nut, chrome enclosed gear tuners with large knobs and an antique white fingerboard binding round out the picture. Also available in 1935 Sunburst and Ambertone finish for an additional $200.
