Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting…
A brand new, just released today, 2018 Redefined Martin D35. What a guitar! Brand new unregistered and ready to play. I played this guitar today and had to secure it for my customers. They pulled the stops out for these new Martin D35 Guitars.
Heres what Martin says about these great guitars!
The workingman's Dreadnought.
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.
Other info from the internet…
The Martin D-35 dreadnought acoustic guitar was birthed in the folk music boom of the 1960’s. Designed in 1965, the D-35 was created because Martin was experiencing a shortage of rosewood wide enough to build their famous D-28. Known for its 3-piece back, with a contrasting center wedge, the D-35 quickly caught on with musicians that preferred the cosmetic look of a three-piece back. Along with the cosmetic changes to the appearance, the D-35 offered a different sound and tone to the famous D-28.
Constructed with 1⁄4 in. bracing, the D-35 had a slight bump in the bottom end when compared to the stiffer 5/16 in. bracing of the D-28. Over time players really began to latch on to the tonal variation, and as a result, the D-35 quickly became an industry standard among players and collectors alike.
Vintage Tone Meets Modern Playability
Today, the D-35E Standard Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has been refined to combine the best of the vintage 1930’ appointments, with the playability of a modern guitar. Like the D-35 from the 1960s, the bracing is 1/4" thickness, but the placement of the X brace has been forward shifted to be located one inch from the sound hole. Now, the D-35E Standard Dreadnought has a very even bass, with just the right blend of the mid and high-end frequencies. The sound is everything you would expect from a fine-tuned Martin acoustic guitar.
Playability has been dramatically improved by changing the neck to a modified low oval, with a Performing Artist taper and 1-3⁄4 in. nut. The wider string spacing and comfortable neck profile allow a player to move up and down the neck with ease. And unlike the more traditional acoustic guitars of the past, the 2018 D-35 Standard Dreadnought will have that vintage tone, with a feel that will be similar to that of an electric guitar.
Along with an amazing sound and feel, this D-35 features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony bridge and fingerboard, hand-fit dovetail neck joint, Nitrocellulose lacquer, Mother Of Pearl fingerboard inlay pattern, antique white binding, aging toner, bone nut and saddle, and a hardshell case.
