A D-35 for southpaws!
Incorporates Martin's visually striking 3-piece back design, producing a strong bass tone that's ideal for rhythm playing. To accentuate the treble, Martin uses lighter 1/4" top braces. Bindings with extra side inlays and a bound ebony fingerboard add to this model's distinctive appeal. Reversed for left-handed playing!
The very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916. After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martin’s iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.
