Contact Author The Martin D 28 There's something very special about the Martin D 28, and it's pointless for me to here go off and try to tell you why it's special. I'll do just a little bit of that, though, as you might not realize that the "D" for dreadnought represents the size and shape of the instrument, and that the 28 represents and states that it is a solid rosewood body instrument with a solid spruce top. That combination of components, my friends and readers, is what is essential about the Martin D 28, There are lots of other specifications involved, of course, and most notable in the instruments I'll cover will be the herringbone trim, which universally specifies the instrument as a high X braced instrument. I should qualify myself.
