    D-35 Martin

    Last summer (2011) I found (bought) a Martin D-35 on Craigslist for $1,400.00. It had been played but no damage of nicks like you usually find in guitars owners don't care about. The top is very nicely aged, it's golden, not white like the new ones. I'm sure that's aging. This guitar resonates like crazy, has great volume and plays like a dream, all what you'd expect from our friends at Martin. I wonder if the price was right. I have no complaints; I no longer shop for acoustics, I mean what's the point? Anything that sounds better than this is going to be way out of my affordability range anyway.

    I am very happy with my current set up and haven't been GAS'n for anything. I guess there is a cure for GAS.

    Stan, there is no cure. Only temporary relief.

    I've never heard of a D35. The Martin guitars are impressive though. A friend recently bought an early 70's D28 and although I'm not an acoustic fan, I enjoyed playing it.

    Martin makes good stuff-most of their stuff isn't really my style--but they have some smaller sized ones I would like.

    Enjoy--and post pictures.
