Martin Custom Shop master luthier Dan Brown, had some very special Wild Grain East Indian Rosewood figured rosewood that is beyond rare! We were able to choose the finest of the lot of what Martin is calling ‘Wild Grain’ Rosewood, and had a special Martin D-28 with a slot headstock custom ordered (photos below of us picking the wood set #64 for this guitar at NAMM).
