The famous Martin dreadnought, with its "D" designation, is without a doubt the most popular size steel-string flat-top guitar. Nearly 16 inches wide and five inches deep, the "D" is Martin's largest body and one of the biggest voices in the acoustic guitar world.

Sitka spruce top
The D-16GT's top is crafted of Sitka spruce. Its high stiffness combined with the lightweight characteristics of most softwoods, makes it a natural for a high velocity of sound. A strong fundamental-to-overtone ratio gives Sitka spruce a powerful direct tone capable of retaining its clarity when played forcefully. This makes Sitka an excellent choice for top wood for players whose style demands a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.

Mahogany back and sides
When employed for back and sides, mahogany has relatively high velocity of sound, which contributes overtone coloration. While rosewood guitars may be thought of as having a metallic sound, the D-16GT's mahogany back and sides sound more wood-like.
