C. F. Martin & Co. is celebrating 50 years of their legendary D-35 Dreadnought with a very special model to debut at the 2015 Winter NAMM Trade Show…The D-35 Brazilian 50thAnniversary Limited Edition.
The innovative D-35 was first created by C.F. Martin & Co. in 1965 and has gone on to be one of the most popular and replicated models of our time. With no more than 100 created, the D-35 Brazilian 50th Anniversary Limited Edition model is constructed with Madagascar rosewood sides and back wings, a Brazilian rosewood back center wedge and headplate, FSC certified European spruce top, ¼” non- scalloped X bracing, and ivoroid bindings.
Each model features an interior label personally signed by CEO & Chairman Chris Martin IV (numbered in sequence with the edition total), a limited edition D-35 Anniversary poster designed by Hatch Show Print (mailed when model is registered, www.hatchshowprint.com) and a 50th Anniversary booklet and warranty card.
In addition to the Limited Edition Brazilian 50th Anniversary model offering, Martin is further celebrating the milestone year with the inclusion of a special 50th Anniversary interior label seen through the soundhole of every stock model D-35 initiated during 2015.
