❌ Sold ❌ C. F. Martin D12-35 12 String Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 1969

❌ Sold ❌  C. F. Martin D12-35 12 String Round Shoulder Dreadnought, 1969

Introduced in 1965, the Martin D12-35 is the 12-string version of the classic Martin D35, visually notable with its three piece Rosewood back. The three-piece design was introduced partly because of simple market forces – larger sized pieces of Rosewood, particularly Brazilian, were becoming scarcer and more expensive. By 1967, Martin was phasing out the use of Brazilian Rosewood, but it appeared on guitars into 1970 until the stocks were completely exhausted.
