Please note: pictured is the right-handed model of the Martin D-35 David Gilmour guitar

Pink Floyd guitar hero David Gilmour has teamed up with legendary acoustic builders in what could be the most ambitious guitar crossover in recent history. The D-35 David Gilmour signature dreadnought is the result - a nod to Gilmour's personal D-35 which he's used to record some of the biggest records ever over a career spanning 40-plus years.

Collector's item

Only 250 of these guitars have been produced worldwide. Each piece is shipped in a moulded hardshell case and features a signed label from Gilmour himself. This is an incredible opportunity for you to own what is destined to be a truly sought-after instrument.

Construction

Just as you'd expect from a handmade Martin, this D-35 absolutely sings. The neck, back and sides are made of sinker mahogany picked out by David - a new wood addition to the Standard Series. It has a distinct grain, selected for its warm and rich characteristics. On top is Martin's impressive Adirondack spruce Vintage Tone System, specially crafted to ring out time-specific vintage tone.

Another change to the standard D-35 are the neck shape and fingerboard pattern, which have been cut to David Gilmour's own detailed preferences.

Design

Nothing comes close to the dapper looks of a vintage Martin, and that's certainly the route they've taken with the D-35 Gilmour signature. Just a few of the stylistic highlights include the Madagascar rosewood headstock embedded with old style Martin script on the front and a unique Gilmour headstamp on the reverse. 

Outlining the gloss finish top is a classic zig zag binding with an elegant bold herringbone style 28 rosette in the centre and tortoise pattern pickgurd. Adding to the retro flavour are a set of aged Waverly open back nickel tuners. This is Martin design at its finest.
