In the early 1970s, Martin Guitar was commissioned to design an all-black lacquered D-35 for country star Johnny Cash. Though Martin had never considered such a request before, an all-black D-35 for the "Man in Black" was custom-made. Cash went on to play his custom D-35 on stage for the next 20 years. In 2006, Martin released a commemorative D-35 Johnny Cash edition.

Designed in collaboration with John Carter Cash and the Cash Foundation management team the DX Johnny Cash features a classic dreadnought body shape constructed with Jett black HPL top, back and sides. Like the earlier commemorative edition, this instrument includes a custom fingerboard inlaid with stars and the "CASH" logo. Johnny Cash's signature appears on the rosette and label. The DX Johnny Cash is equipped with Fishman MX electronics, includes a soft gig bag embroidered with the "CASH" logo, and is strung with Martin's Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 strings.

The DX Johnny Cash was designed to be an accessible and playable guitar for anyone looking to honor the legacy of the legendary musician.

I would buy this guitar again.


Wanted a guitar to take camping and on trips in the motorhome and not have to take my good Martin. The DX Johnny Cash HPL body construction will help not worry as much about humidity levels. This guitar also sounds great! I wasn't sure how this material in a guitar would sound, but I'm pleasantly surprised.





I bought this thing online even though I was skeptical and thought at worst case it would be an amazing decoration in my Johnny Cash room. When I received it the action was perfect and the tone and intonation blew me away. Couldn't believe how good the guitar was for the money. I had played other Martin DX models I was not impressed with which made this a very risky buy. But the risk paid off. Worth every cent and then some.

How Cool Is A Johnny Cash Guitar!! Wife bought this for me for Christmas! I love HER too!!



Best Martin guitar on a budget (with style)


The tone (a Martin staple) though not as good as other more expensive Martin guitars, is still superb. If you're looking for something to bang around with at home or in the garage without dropping a couple Grand (and have killer looks to boot) this is the guitar to get. The included pickups are a nice bonus as well. I'll never buy another acoustic brand.



Great buy for a discounted price


The guitar is everything I have wanted. Visions of? The legend himself playing it singing certainly adds feelings to my own playing. The gig bag has all the needed logo but it could be better even if a small Fee may be necessary to pad it better for travel protection.



What a great sound


Waited a long time for my first Martin guitar and it was well worth it. Great look, great sound. Never thought I could afford a Martin that I liked but it finally came along and I am totally elated.

I recommend this guitar


This is one sweet guitar, great sound and easy to play.



Cash guitar rocks!


In tune out of the box! I liked how it sounded on videos I saw, and was pleasantly surprised how rich it sounded in person, despite being an HPL guitar. Plugged in, it sounds even better.



What an awesome surprise!


I'll be honest here. As a Martin owner (wooden that is) I was skeptical about trying this composite guitar, fearful the sound might not be up to my expectations. The fact that it was made in Mexico may me even more skeptical. But I took the plunge and was very surprised. It sounds great! Better than any other electric/acoustic guitar I've played in that price range. In fact, better than higher priced guitars. It has a deep rich tone so captivating that the night it arrived I played it for hours.
