Martin Left Handed HD-35 Standard Series Acoustic Guitar

C.F. Martin Guitars


One of Martin's Best Kept Secrets, Combining Vintage Martin Tone With Modern Playability

Martin developed the original D-35 dreadnought in 1965 during a shortage of Rosewood wide enough to build their famous D-28. The solution was to create a 3-piece back, with a contrasting center wedge giving the D-35 a new look and unique sound. The new HD-35 is a revamped version of the D-35 that came out in the 60‘s, with modern appointments that enhance this dreadnought’s sound and playability. 

The Martin left handed HD-35 Standard Series Acoustic Guitar combines a Sitka Spruce top with East Indian Rosewood back and sides, resulting in pure Martin tone enhanced with strong bass. The HD-35 combines the classic D-35 Dreadnought body style with the 3-piece Rosewood back and Sitka Spruce top with scalloped forward-shifted X-bracing inside, giving it the powerful projection and vintage tone of a Martin Dreadnought, with unrivalled clarity.

The playability on the Martin lefty HD-35 Standard Series acoustic has been improved with the addition of a new High Performance Taper neck with a modern low oval profile which allows you to move up and down the plek-dressed Ebony fretboard with ease. The select hardwood modified low oval profile neck has a gorgeous satin finish that further enhances the already silky playability, giving it the feel of an electric with the Vintage acoustic tone you’d expect from a Martin.

The HD-35 also sports a series of high end appointments that further elevate the playing experience to nothing short of luxurious. Along with the amazing sound and feel of this HD-35 you have an ebony bridge and fingerboard, hand-fit dovetail neck joint, Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, Mother Of Pearl fingerboard inlay pattern, antique white binding, aging toner, bone nut and saddle, and a hardshell case included.
