We have some very special news today! Seth has been hard at work designing a custom Martin D-35 guitar and today we are ready to share it with you all! Seth has played his Martin D-35 at hundreds of concerts, on three solo records, and on 10 Avett Brothers albums. Seth combined the classic Martin D-35 design with some unique modifications and a couple personal custom touches – including snowflake position markers and an interior label personally signed by Seth – to create his version of the perfect guitar.
“I’ve always seen a Martin Deadnought as the quintessential acoustic guitar; the blue-collar guitar, understated and solid in the hands of Jim Croce or Doc Watson or Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. I’ve always leaned toward the warmth and strength of the D-35. I got my first one, a 1977 model, about twelve years ago, and I’ve been wearing them out and refretting them and wearing them out again ever since. This instrument is a true collaboration between me and the Martin Guitar Company. I can’t wait to find out what songs are waiting in this guitar, for me and anyone who decides to buy one.” -Seth Avett
