Exc condition. SN: 247265.
One of the first few years of the Martin Brazilian D-35, a new model from Martin with a three-pc back and nicer binding package than their D-28’s had. Only the first 5 years of production offered Brazilian Rosewood. This one is a rather nice example. Appears to be Engelmann Spruce top.
Guitar sustained some damage to lower bout on treble side, with a crack repair showing on Spruce top near binding and excellently repaired crack on side. Center seam of top has been re-glued below bridge. Multiple Antique white bindings around top and back of body. Single white binding along fingerboard. Three-piece back with multiple wood strips between pieces.
This is a very big sounding guitar, with good playability.
Comes with HC.
Here is audio clip of our friend Matt Rieger from Missoula’s Lil Smokies Band picking on this great D-35.
