Martin Guitar is proud to offer the D-35 David Gilmour Custom Signature Edition. This guitar is a nod to Gilmour’s treasured D-35, his main recording and writing companion for over four decades — but it’s also an instrument for him today, with a style and sound all its own.
The David Gilmour signature models are the first D-35s ever made with neck, back and sides of sinker mahogany, chosen by Gilmour 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 antique white binding and vintage gloss finish, plus Waverly Relic Nickel tuners. A unique neck shape and fingerboard pattern were crafted to Gilmour’s specification for this guitar, while a special headstamp is featured on the reverse of the headstock. The signature models are limited to 250 pieces, and every label is hand-signed by Gilmour himself, ensuring this guitar’s place on every collector’s wish list. Through this partnership, Martin Guitar is proud to support the David Gilmour Charitable Foundation.
