Subject: RE: sigma guitars
I'm glad to have found this Sigma thread. I have one of the elusive Sigma D-10 Anniversary models (serial # 815924). Received it as a Christmas gift in 1980. Thirty years old and going strong. Always knew it was beautiful in looks and sound, and would never part with it, but until recently I did not know the backstory of the D-10 and the desirablity of this great guitar.   

I do have question, but it is about the SDR-28 versus DR-28. I recently purchased a Korean (1993)SDR-28 (serial # 93060187). My initial understanding was that the "S" in SDR stands for "solid" spruce top, but my understanding is that the DR-28 of the same era also had a solid spruce top. If both of these models have solid tops, then why the extra "S" in SDR-28? From discussion on other sites, most folks describe the SDR-28 as having laminate back and sides (like the DR-28), but then exactly what does the "S" stand for? I've wondered whether the S in SDR means solid body, too. Wishful thinking? Anyone know?
