Overview

The Martin Performing Artist DCPA1 acoustic guitar comes very close to setting a standard in acoustic-electric guitars for player comfort and performance. The Performing Artist Series was designed to blend Martin's legendary guitar tone and appointments with player-friendly features for outstanding playability and tonal performance. This wonderful Martin acoustic guitar features solid Sitka spruce top, 2-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, the new Fishman Aura Blender electronics system delivers stunning realism and projection in an easy-to-use onboard preamp system. With only 2 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 system is its ability to replicate the sound of 9 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 undersaddle pickup. The Gold Plus undersaddle pickup is sensitive along its entire length for responsive, lively sound with no string spacing problems. The Delmar tortoise pickguard tops off its gorgeous appointments.

Beautiful Guitar

By Bryce Kelchner

from Apple Valley

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series DCPA1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I needed an acoustic cutout to gig with, and Martins are the best sounding and playing acoustic guitars, period. This is a beautiful guitar with that great projecting Martin tone, clear and balanced. The cutout and electronics inside do not seem to take away from the tone at all. The DCPA1 is very nice to play with good fast action, and the setup from factory was perfect. The inlays in the neck, head and body are a nice touch, if not a little fancier than I am used to. -Beautiful Rosewood gloss finish on the sides and back, which is getting harder to find in a Martin. The Fishman F1 electronics default to the tuner first, which is what I needed the most (although I found Martins in general stay in tune a very long time) and you can just plug it in and go without having to read the manual. The pickup sound out of the box is excellent, and precludes having to use the 9 other microphone images available, but are there if you want to tweak the sound a little. Overall, the DCPA1 is a great sounding, great playing and great looking acoustic-electric guitar. You get a top of the line, Quality Martin Guitar you can plug in, for just a little more money.

AH..MAY...ZING!!

By Dan H

from Plano, TX

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series DCPA1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Wow at this guitar. Unbelievable sound quality and deep amazing rosewood tone. The fishman AURA electronics is second to none and does something that no one else can do with guitar sounds. Stays in tune great...AMAZING action. I was in GC looking at a Taylor and saw this guitar and fell in love. I have used this guitar primarily for recording and it plays back BEAUTIFULLY! By far the best recorded sound I've gotten from a guitar. I know it seems a bit pricy but well worth it if you know your guitars and looking for an investment and something that is going to hold its value and quality. BUY THIS GUITAR!!
