The HD-35, one of Martin's most closely guarded treasures, is a guitar that draws inspiration from the iconic D-35 model. It boasts a remarkable three-piece back, which adds a touch of uniqueness to its design. Additionally, this exquisite instrument features a bound fingerboard and the timeless elegance of herringbone trim, tastefully adorning the top perimeter.
Recognizing the importance of continuous improvement, Martin gave the HD-35 a well-deserved makeover in 2018. This update included the implementation of scalloped top braces, meticulously designed to enhance the instrument's tone and projection. Furthermore, the guitar received a modified low oval neck with a narrow taper, ensuring the ultimate playability experience for musicians.
Combining the finest materials, the HD-35 showcases a spruce top paired with East Indian rosewood back and sides. This meticulous craftsmanship results in the distinct and unparalleled Martin tone, beautifully complemented by robust bass notes.
The HD-35 stands as a rare gem within Martin's collection, hidden away until its unveiling. With its outstanding features and tonal excellence, it has become a coveted instrument for musicians seeking both exceptional sound and timeless aesthetics.
