C. F. Martin & Co / D35E Retro / 2014 / Natural / Guitar
With the Retro series of guitars, Martin have taken a ‘doner’ guitar that they think represents the classic tone of that particular model, and tried to replicate it both acoustically and amplified. With the D35 they’ve used a 1967 example, and tried to capture it’s tone and character. They’ve used a European Spruce soundboard with thin 1/4" width bracing, and 3 piece Indian Rosewood back, and coupled that with a High Performance Neck taper for easy action and enhanced playability. Unplugged it has a real bite to it’s tone with great clarity and excellent low end response. Plugged in they’ve used electronic imaging contributed from the 1967 vintage D-35 "donor" guitar, giving a very accurate vintage tone. The guitar is in excellent condition, and comes in it’s original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
