Product Details

Very valuable Hakaranda's final year of D-35 arrival

The D-35, which has the first three-piece back body of Martin, was prototyped in 1965 and officially announced in '66. At the beginning of the release, D-45 and D-41 were not released, so they are positioned as the highest model after D-28.
Binding is applied not only to the body but also on the neck, featuring a high -quality look unique to the high -end model.

This time, S/N #2454XX was in 1969 with a specification of a square rod, a large Hakaran d'vridge plate, and a globe with a "PAT PEND" engraved stamp.

Hakaranda (Brazilian rosewood) is used for the body material.
Since it has been changed to East Indian Rosewood since this time, Hakaranda individuals are overwhelmingly small and rare than the D-18 and D-28, which are much longer than the D-35, and are very valuable individuals. I am.

As a characteristic of the 3-piece back, the bass is reduced compared to the D-28, and a more bright and stretchy tone is obtained. In addition, the characteristics of the only one and only Hakaranda material are added, the separation is good, and the high notes glow and the bulge of sound are increasing.

The D-35 is a model that has also gained high popularity and reputation in the Japanese folk scene in the 70's, and the X-Brassing, which is slightly lower than the D-28, has a good response and rich midfielder. It is said that it contributed to the range. I think that it is a perfect model for play -style musicians because it can handle a well -balanced manner from stroke to finger.

In terms of appearance condition, it is a dignified dignity in which the finely entered weather check creates astringency. The pickguard is replaced, there is a Martin crack under the guard, but it is reinforced by a patch.

The neck is almost straight, the string height of the 12th fret is about 2.2mm for 6 strings, about 2.0mm for 1 string, and the saddle height is about 2.5mm.
The fret has a little dent in the low position, but there is no flap or jerk and the performance is good.

The lean feeling of painting is also unique to vintage, and you can enjoy the crisp sound, the glossy sound/volume/sustain peculiar to the Hakaranda body. A slightly thicker neck is reliable, and the sound with a midrange core is comfortable.
