Martin, C.F.: D35 SETH AVETT

(Item ID: D35 SETH AVETT    Serial#: 2062474)

Martin, C.F. D35 SETH AVETT Seth Avett Signature Dreadnought

From the Martin website:

"Built in collaboration with Seth Avett of The Avett Brothers, a high-altitude Swiss spruce top is featured for the top of this 14-fret Dreadnought. Harvested in winter months to produce a lighter-weight wood with better stiffness, this wood features a tight and even grain. This guitar also sports three-piece back composed of East Indian rosewood with a flamed koa center wedge. Seth himself designed the copper snowflake inlay placed in this guitar's ebony fretboard."

Of all the Signature Series Martin guitars we have had in our store over the years, the Seth Avett is certainly one of our favorites. Yes, it is distinctive for its appearance, and we like that. But, we are always most interested in the sound of an instrument, and we are always excited by any special something in a sound that, because it is uncommon or unique, seizes our attention and inspires more investigation. Yes, like any fine instrument, the Avett Signature dreadnought, scores high in the objective measures of balance, clarity, power and projection. But, there is a subtle, smooth, savory character to its timbre that is especially alluring, that is a special something. As they say when you can't find words to describe it, "you know it when you hear it." To offer an analogy, just as certain foods have a great mouth feel, this guitar produces a sound with a great ear feel - an ineffable aural umami that induces pure pleasure.


This guitar includes a deluxe custom Cedar Creek archtop hardshell case.
