Martin D-35 CFM IV 60th – Review

A commemorative limited edition, the HD-35 CFM IV 60th was sixty years in the making.

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Martin D-35. It also marks the 60th anniversary of the current Mr. Martin. And these two events have led to the creation of a unique guitar, the HD-35 CFM IV 60th, honoring the very successful career of Chief Executive Officer, Christian Fredrick Martin IV on the occasion of his 60th Birthday.

Specs include: Dreadnought body size; Indian siris sides and three-piece back with Indian rosewood center wedge; European spruce top with Martin’s Vintage Tone System; abalone herringbone purfling and Infinity Hexagon Outline fret markers; scalloped 1/4″ Adirondack spruce top braces; ebony fingerboard and bridge; grained ivoroid binding; mahogany neck with modified low oval profile and Performing Artist taper, 1-3/4” at nut and 2-1/8” at 12th fret; 2-3/16” string spacing; ebony headstock faceplate with mother of pearl Martin logo and CFM IV’s birth date; nickel waffle-back tuners; limited to 60 instruments

“The treble strings give off the tinkling chime of a music box, while the midrange notes stand firm and defined over a built-in reverb echoing from within…It is a voice of depth, color and definition, conjured out of a very interesting combination of woods and craftsmanship.”
