Perhaps Johnny Cash's most favourite Martin guitar (and he played many) was a specially made D-35, his - and Martin's - first guitar with a polished black finish. Perfect for "the man in black," Cash played this guitar on stage for nearly 20 years. Now Martin has paid tribute to this musical legend with a close facsimile of that special instrument: the D-35 Johnny Cash Commemorative.

AFTER WAITING ABOUT 4 MONTHS , IT ARRIVED WITH SOME ISSUES, I CAN'T BELIEVE A GUITAR SO EXPENSIVE WOULD COME WITH THIS PROBLEM. THE STRINGS WERE SPACED WRONG, SO THE E STRING WOULD KEEP ON SLIDING OFF THE FRET BOARD. ANYWAY LM FIXED IT UP, SO ALLS OK. THE GUITAR ITSELF IS EXCELLENT.

Lucky day when I walked into L&Mq in Nanaimo and noticed a black Martin on the wall. I wasn't aware of this model. Martin? Black? And it was used, thus broken in. Well, hello credit card. Complete with a Fishman. Absolutely amazing stage sound. Saved a couple of thousand because it was used. Bonus!!! Haven't previously been a fan of the D-35 but this is an entirely different beast.

This magnificent guitar not only stood out boldly in a wall of conventional looking Martins, it also stood out head and shoulders over most of them in its gorgeous sound.
I bought it on the spot. My wife says it's my LAST guitar.

I have played a lot of guitars (and owned a lot) so when I casually thumbed the strings while the guitar was hanging on the wall, the resonance made me take notice. It's surprising light but the sound is HUGE!! There's a reason why Martin is the Rolls Royce of acoustics. It's not cheap and I am not a fan of black acoustics but the tone is angelic. Chime, sustain, full bodied and balanced tone!! $4K is not cheap but the sound is priceless. I prefer natural finish and have yet to play a new D35 that sounds as good as the Johnny Cash D35 model I played at the Vancouver L&M. Martin guitars only get better with age and this one is going to be a masterpiece. I just may have to buy a black acoustic :)

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
