You are looking at a Martin D-35E Retro Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 2137849. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Through extensive sonic imaging of existing vintage Martin acoustic guitars and through the utilization of groundbreaking Fishman electronics, the C.F. Martin Retro Series instruments represent a captivating mixture of classic and contemporary.

The "tone donor" for this Martin D-35E Retro is a gracefully aged vintage D-35 from 1967 that has a beautifully balanced, resonant and projective voice. Blending the traditional features that you'd find on a vintage D-35 with several enhancements, the D-35E Retro boasts a certified European spruce top, standard "X" bracing with thinner 1/4" braces, solid East Indian rosewood back sides with a gorgeous 3-piece back, Style 28 appointments, grained ivoroid binding and a black pickguard. Offering modern playability and comfort that today's players will appreciate, the select hardwood neck is carved into the modified low oval profile and sports Martin's high-performance Performing Artist taper. Not only that, but the D-35E Retro has also undergone a PLEK setup that enhances the guitar's playability even futher. When you plug into the specially-voiced Fishman F1 Aura Plus electronics, you will be amazed with the crystal clear, studio-quality vintage sound the D-35E Retro delivers. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
