Since its introduction in 1931, the Martin D-28 has remained the standard by which all large-bodied steel-stringed guitars are measured. The D-28 utilizes solid East Indian rosewood for the back and sides and genuine ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. With its rich, resonant warmth, the D-28 is particularly well-suited to bluegrass and country music styles requiring loud, powerful rhythm accompaniment.
