D12-35 50th Anniversary

List price

$5,999.00

We continue to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our beloved D-35 model with the introduction of the D12-35 50th Anniversary Limited Edition model. This celebratory model is a 12-string, solid headstock Dreadnought limited to a quantity of 183, the quantity of the first 1965 production run. This modern interpretation of the original model includes a European spruce top with Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS) and 3-piece East Indian rosewood back and sides. Martin enthusiasts worldwide will want to add this beauty to their collection.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

Learn more about Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS) at www.martinguitar.com/VTS.
