Hi Gang, I've never had a D-3532 Martin before. Indian rosewood back and sides. Mahogany neck. Spruce top with some minor flames. Rosewood fretboard. Piezo pickup. W/OHSC. Made in Japan under the watchfully eye of Q.C. This Martin is one of the best sounding and playing Martin I have owned for the price. They're as comparable of every good Martin that comes out of Nazareth. Marin made sure of that. A killer guitar at a great price.
