      Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar (423490)

Outstanding playability and tonal performance, with Fishman electronics.

The Martin OMCPA-1 guitar from the Performing Artist series comes close to setting a standard in acoustic-electric guitars for player comfort and performance. The Martin Performing Artist guitar was conceived with the idea of combining Martin's legendary acoustic guitar tone and appointments with player-friendly features for outstanding playability and tonal performance.

This wonderful Martin guitar features solid Sitka spruce top, two-ring rosette, Solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, solid Ovangkol binding, 25.4" scale length, 1-3/4" width at nut, solid black ebony bridge, and Gold tuning machines enclosed with large buttons.

Articulate, yet powerful, this Fishman pickup system delivers stunning realism and projection in an easy-to-use onboard preamp system. With only two low profile knobs and a single LED display, F1 Aura offers advanced features in a minimalist design: digital chromatic tuner, volume and blend controls, independent 3-band EQ for both pickup and image signals, compressor, phase control and an automatic antifeedback filter with up to 3 notches. The genius of the F1 Aura guitar pickup is its ability to replicate the sound of nine different world-class studio microphones. Here, Fishman engineers have captured the distinctive audio "image" that these high-quality microphones "hear" and allow you to blend it in with the legendary Martin Gold Plus under-saddle pickup. The Delmar Tortoise pickguard tops off its gorgeous embellishments.

  • Fine piece of equipment

    As reviewed by Sam on 6/6/2010

    I've had a chance to play one of these and what a pleasure it was. You can't buy a finer sounding acoustic guitar. The tone alone from this beautifully made Martin is enough to fork over the cash. In my opinion Martin makes the best soundig acoustics and this is one of their finest pieces. And the best part is you won't lose any of the sound when you plug this bad boy in. I also really like the inlays.

    This guitar is absolutely wonderful. I played a friends, and fell in love with it immediately you get a nice crisp tone perfect for fingerpicking as well as strumming. I would recommend this guitar to everyone. Pros- Sounds amazing, and the pickup is fantastic Cons- Price, but if you want quality your gonna have to give a little All in all great guitar, recommended!

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Tom on 6/28/2011

    I have had three taylors. Was a little frustrated with the expansion systems buzzing through my fishman SA220-this is common. Decided to trade the GS8 (great sounding guitar) for the OM. Back to the OM, the action was very high but the GC rep did a set up at no cost. The electronics are great and sounds crystal clear. I love the tone and brightness of this guitar. Over the years I had made a cautious decision to keep the gear I absolutely love and to get rid of the other items. This guitar is a keeper. I will never get rid of it. I have some other killer guitars ie. 1990 Gibson LP with very hot pickups and I will add this to my collection. Great job. Martin. Thank you.
