  • Best Acoustic Guitar EVER

    As reviewed by Kelly Baker on 3/19/2013

    I got this as a gift on Saturday. It came to me set-up and expertly tuned. Right out of the case, I couldn't believe my ears. This guitar is the holy grail of acoustics. I know there are more lavish Martins out ther, but trust me, this guitar is definitely not a "no-frills" guitar. The voice of this incredible instrument really shines. I have a Seagul S6 acoustic that has been my side arm for many years, and as much as I trust it, it can come close to the tone, and atmosphere this guitar provides. I plugged in tonight and lost myself for hours... the Fishman electronics took my playing to a whole new level. Love the built in tuner. Love the absence of feedback turned up and near my half stack tube amp. I love everything about this guitar. It's the perfect counter to my Les Paul Studio Deluxe. I will have this until the day I die.

  • Beautiful Guitar

    As reviewed by Steven Dunfee on 6/3/2013

    I purchased the Martin DCPA4 Rosewood Dreadnought a couple weeks ago after trying out about a dozen different guitars including other Martin models, Taylors, Breedloves & Gibsons. I was sold on this model for the tonal quality it offered at its price point. Now that I've had it for a couple of weeks I am finding that every day I play it I like it even better. In fact, I have a hard time putting it down. Sounds great unplugged and plugged in the Fishman F1 system really delivers. My band mates instantly noticed a significant improvement in our sound the first time we practiced with me playing my new axe. I am over the moon with this guitar and would highly recommend it to anyone.

  • Powerful guitar to empower real guitarists

    As reviewed by Will V. on 5/15/2014

    As a collector of high end guitars, my limited and custom electric guitars outweighed my acoustics. Originally searching for exotics, I was shocked to find this luxury guitar at such a low price. I got so many compliments after performing, which I probably wouldn't have gotten on my interim guitar. The dreadnought body really drives good power and bass outward/audience-ward, and can handle hard strumming when I push it. Authentic/vintage in sound, well rounded tone, balanced trebles and lows. Pickups usually can't handle bass well, but the new pickup handles absolutely fine, with no feedback, and sounds natural. The action is very conducive to acrobatics and agile passages, and in combination with the rich tone, make it a very nimble and capable guitar. Fingerpicking, flatpicking, aggressive, mellow, harmonics, tapping - guitar handles it all. Other guitars at this price point were the equivalent of flat coke, and pricier guitars struggled to keep up in tone. Deep overtone textures, rich sounds, the music I play just oozes luxury. The ebony fretboard and included hardshell wood case is a plus. My students can't put it down, and hate picking theirs back up. On stage, players before and after feel dwarfed. And producers/engineers compliment what a joy it is to record a real guitar in the studio. Even preferred over the studio guitars in the recording studios I work with (usually older series Martins). Martin really outdid themselves (literally) with their new Performing Artist series. Most people fall in love with music and guitar without realizing the expensive hobby they're falling into, and few have the means to proceed to purchase ridiculously priced guitars that sound good. Smart move by Martin, even though Martin could be charging twice as much for these. Very deserving of respect.
