Here we have a beautiful 1986 Martin D35, this guitar sounds absolutely stunning, the setup is still exactly the same as it came from the factory, we have only tweaked the truss rod. Very similar in design to the legendary D-28 dreadnought, the Martin D-35 adds a three-piece back constructed from Indian Rosewood as well as a bound fingerboard and other nice cosmetic details. These blues machines sing deep with a larger-than-life bass response and are a favorite instrument for the likes of Johnny Cash, Judy Collins, and Ernest Tubb among countless others. 

This guitar does have some marks which have all been photographed these include lacquer cracking on the top of the guitar, 2 small pin size circular lacquer impressions on the lower side of the top, one larger lacquer impression on the upper side of the top, one 1mm wide and deep line scratch on the top, lacquer mark on the back of the neck, some light hairline scratches on the back from general use. The case is in great condition and perfect working order.
