Martin / D35 / 1980 / Natural / Guitar
If you want a great bass response and lots of sustain, then a Martin D35 may be the guitar for you. With a 3 piece Indian Rosewood back the guitar has plenty of punch and clarity, plus a tight controlled bass, not too boomy but really powerful. The guitar works well for all styles, from heavy strumming to flatpicking and fingerstyle. At 34 years old, the guitar has matured really well, the top has turned a warm honey colour, and the back and sides are beautifully figured, the three pice back contrasting really well. The guitar is in great all original condition, with just the right amount of playwear for a guitar of this age, it has a very comfortable feeling neck and great playing action. The guitar 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.
