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. Designed in collaboration with John Carter Cash and the Cash Foundation management team the DX Johnny Cash features a classic dreadnought body shape constructed with Jett black 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. The DX Johnny Cash is equipped with Fishman MX electronics, includes 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.
