The new Martin DX Johnny Cash acoustic electric guitar in black with a soft gig bag has arrived!
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. In 2006, Martin released a commemorative D-35 Johnny Cash edition. New for 2019, 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 (1-IPLI top, back and sides. Like the earlier commemorative edition, this instrument includes a custom fingerboard inlaid with stars and the -CAW 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. The DX Johnny Cash was designed to be an accessible and playable guitar for anyone looking to honor the legacy of the legendary musician.
