Martin DX Johnny Cash Guitar

In the early 1970s, Martin Guitar was commissioned to design an all-black lacquered D-35 for country star Johnny Cash. Though Martin had never considered such a request before, an all-black D-35 for the "Man in Black" was custom-made. Cash went on to play his custom D-35 on stage for the next 20 years. The DX Johnny Cash is a nod to the history between Cash and Martin Guitar.

Designed in collaboration with John Carter Cash and the Cash Foundation management team, the guitar features a classic Dreadnought body shape constructed with Jett black high-pressure laminate (HPL) top, back and sides. Like the earlier commemorative edition, this instrument includes a custom fingerboard inlaid with stars and the "CASH" logo. Johnny Cash's signature appears on the rosette and label. This model comes with Fishman MX electronics and a soft gig bag embroidered with the "CASH" logo and is strung with Martin's Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 strings. The DX Johnny Cash was designed to be an accessible and playable guitar for anyone looking to honor the legacy of the legendary musician.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Martin products.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: This guitar is worth more than the asking price..I have been playing guitar professionally for over 50 years and I have played acoustics twice what this cost and didn't sound as good as this one..it's warm and full, not as twangy as say, a d-28..more a cross between a Martin and a Gibson with the full darker; but very cool bottom end..no marks,blemishes or negatives upon opening the box.looks great with the flat black finish...it was perfect right out of the box..all notes clear up and down the neck and set up well, it plays beautifully and sounds great. Now for my negative...the electronics are kind of weird..it has this strange eq where you turn the wheel to one side and it cuts the mid range for finger picking, or that's the theory. It does cut the mid strings out and I hate it..lol....when you turn the wheel the other way it's suppose to bring back the mids and make it full range; but I found it still messed with the mids and once again, I didn't like it..this was through an amp though and I am going to use it on the gig Monday and see if it still does it through the PA. None the less....BUY this guitar if you are in the market for a really great sounding acoustic..highly recommended!!!

Overall: I have been playing guitar professionally for over 50 years..I have played many acoustic guitars and this is one of the best I have ever played...right out of the box it was ready to play...no blemishes or noticeable defects of any kind...the sound is warm and big...does not sound like a typical Martin with the twangy bottom end..the top end is bright; but not overbearing..the bottom is a little darker; but very full and pleasant ..sort of a cross between a Martin and a Gibson tone. Bottom line..this guitar plays and sounds way above it's price point..I highly recommend this guitar especially at this price...this guitar holds it's own against instruments twice it's price point..if your looking at acoustics at a higher price..try this 1st...really nice acoustic guitar!!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
