  • D-35 Seth Avett Custom Signature Edition

    Less than a week after i but a new guitar, Martin announces a Custom guitar by my favorite guitarist.

    D-35 Seth Avett Custom Signature

    I've never been a huge fan of Dreadnoughts, they've always seemed more awkward that a traditional size or small body, but the D-35 is crazy popular. Every time i look for an acoustic i have several people recomend them to me. If they're serious about the materials balancing out the tone, i could definitely enjoy a Dread more. Looks like a pretty great guitar. Maybe when i have the funds i'll look into one of those instead of a Gibson.

      I am a great fan of the D35 (mine is the standard, no frills version) and it is a rock solid instrument, with great tone and is very stable.  While there may be other guitars out there that have a bit more sparkle than the D35, it is truly a workhorse guitar and is very strong when playing with other instruments.  Even though mine is a 2003, I do not believe it has opened up yet.  I believe that over the years it will just get better.  It smells great too, LOL (Rosewood).

    Not a fan, huh?

    Personally I think looks should be secondary. I bet that thing growls though.

      "other than the Euro / Adi top / bracing" and what that implys in the sound of the guitar +++

      It looks imature and silly.

      but no doubt - it'll sound real good - agreed ?

    hi Eakle, I hope ya dont mind a slight detour - still on the D35 theme though, the only D35 I've ever played.

    I had a friend who had a Martin D35 which I accused him of destroying by having an artist friend paint a scene on the front - here it is,

    painted guitar

    The guitar will be worth a 5 or even 6 figure sum now., the artist's paintings now hang in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery .Ah, sometimes ya get it wrong

      Wow...nice work!

      Does it impact the tone, though?
