Overview

Between 1975 and 1978, Gibson produced the Mark series of flattop acoustics which were designed by Michael Kasha and Ricahrd Schneider. These steel-strings had a 16 3/16-inch wide body and were narrower at the waist than a normal dreadnought. Some innovative features offered with the Mark series were a modified fan-pattern bracing style, an asymmetrical bridge, a removable pickguard, and interchangeable saddles. The MK-35 specifically used Mahogany for its back and sides, dot inlays, nickle-plated, and a three-piece Rosewood fingerboard. While innovative in their time, Mark series guitars never really caught on, and are not particularly sought-after by collectors.
