Feefo reviews:

Johnny Cash's deep baritone voice was instantly recognisable. When he passed away in 2003, country music lost one of its original rebels. Johnny was such a rebel, in fact, that the first black Martin ever produced was built at Johnny's request behind the back of Martin's president C. F. Martin III, as he didn't want a black Martin to be built. C. F. Martin III actually didn't find out that the guitar had been built until he saw Johnny Cash play the black Martin on 'Columbo.

The D-35 was Johnny's favourite, and it accompanied him onstage for nearly 20 years.

    The Johnny Cash D-35 isn't just a collector guitar to be hung on the wall. Since it is a Martin, it plays and sounds as good as it looks. The ebony fingerboard is fitted with abalone stars bordered in mother-of-pearl position markers, and Johnny's signature is inlaid in pearl between the 19th and 20th frets. The interior label is signed by Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash, and C.F. Martin IV. This is a Martin that is as distinguished as its original owner. Johnny was a legend in his own time, and this is your chance to own his trusty favourite!
