A distinctive three-piece back and antique white binding around the fingerboard set it apart. Expressive quarter-inch straight bracing gives it balance and power for any situation. Premium East Indian rosewood, Sitka spruce, and a timeless Dreadnought shape have made it the choice for pickers, strummers, and players from Johnny Cash to Seth Avett.

I left my medical career behind when I hear Tony Rice's D28. Over the years, I tried tens of top end Martins off Guitar Center walls, but none sang under my fingers. This D35 just sang beautifully. D35 is the right one in the lineup of D28, HD28, D35, and HD35 in terms of the right amount of bass and wide-ranged resonance for fingerpicking and flatpicking with a gentle hand. D28 and HD28 work best for someone with a heavy strumming hand or flatpicking technique. Otherwise they sound too dry, as the top needs more hand power to move adequately. I compared this with roughly 13 others in this lineup before coming back to the specific one that got me excited more than six months earlier. 6 weeks later, I love it more each day. Everything sounds so musical and huge on this one-man orchestra that I am making up my own tunes everyday, Now, here's an inspirational instrument!

Wanted a Martin for years. Went to L&M East store in Calgary yesterday looking for a D-28 after much research. Tried the D-28 & HD28 and really liked them both. Then I picked up the D-35 and was blown away! To my ears, much more balanced and articulate sounds across the strings and all the way up the fretboard. Beautiful, booming, clear and a pleasure to play. Setup from the factory is a bit higher than I prefer but I?ll play it and let it open up then I?ll lower the action when I get the first setup. This is not just my guitar of a lifetime, it is now a family heirloom.
