David Gilmour Custom Signature Edition Plus More From Martin Guitar For 2021

Martin is proud to offer the D-35 David Gilmour Custom Signature Edition. This guitar is a nod to David’s treasured D-35, his main recording & writing companion for over four decades, but is an instrument for him today, with a style and sound all its own. These signature models are the first D-35s ever made with neck, back and sides of sinker mahogany, chosen by David for its warm, rich tones and exquisitely beautiful grain.

Martin added an Adirondack spruce Vintage Tone System top for an old-world sound and matched that with vintage gloss finish, Waverly Relic Nickel tuners and antique white binding. A unique neck shape & fingerboard pattern were crafted to David’s specification for this guitar, while a special headstamp features on the reverse of the headstock. The signature models are limited to 250 pieces and every label is hand-signed by David himself, ensuring this guitar’s place on every collector’s wish list.
