Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series DCPA1 Plus Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
This one's really a masterpiece and a work of art. Sounds cool plugged or unplugged. It's a dream guitar for me and I'm proud of it as one of my collections. The only minor falldown is the quality of the gloss finish at the back and sides. It's not really that first quality in toughness and easily the shine fades in just minutes playing the guitar where it touches my chest and upper arm. I'm wearing my shirt and not even perspiring at all. So I have to polish it every time after I use it for mostly just an hour or less, or else it will permanently lose the polish shine. With my Taylor guitars and the rest, even if I use them all day long and even sweating, the shine never fades. Still, love this guitar though we spend little time together.
