The Martin Custom Shop HD-35 VTS Sitka Spruce Top was designed exclusively for Empire Music by the Martin Guitars Custom Shop. Featuring a spectacular VTS Sitka Spruce Top, this Martin Custom Shop HD-35 VTS Sitka sounds incredible. The Vintage Tone System (VTS) is described by Martin Guitars as:
"The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments."
The Martin Custom Shop HD-35 VTS Sitka Spruce shares all of the traditional specifications of the HD-35 while adding the spectacular VTS Sitka Spruce Top with Gloss Natural Finish.
