Overview

The Martin DCPA1 Plus Performing Artist Series Plus Acoustic-Electric Guitar is the flagship of the Performing Artist Series. This beautiful instrument ensures that legendary Martin tone reaches your audience in the highest style. With solid East Indian rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, this instrument integrates state-of-the art electronics with striking aesthetic features, player comfort and exceptional tone.

The Martin DCPA1 Plus features the stunning realism of award-winning Aura Acoustic Imaging technology in a distinctive and easy to use onboard preamp system. The heart of this onboard intelligence is its ability to replicate the sound of nine different world-class studio microphones. Delivered in an intuitive menu driven interface that is very versatile with controls placed in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing. Controlled with two low profile control buttons and a single large, bright LED display. Placed in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing.

Enhanced "Easy Mode" Simplifies Operation
F1 Aura+ offers a simplified set of user controls called Easy Mode. This mode allows you to quickly get a feel for the tonal possibilities of F1 Aura+ while providing quick access to the most important features you'll need every day.

Simply press the Tone control to step through 3 custom-blended Aura Image presets as well as audition the uneffected, Gold Plus pickup sound. The one-knob Tone control blends between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (flat) on up to a "scooped" tone with emphasized treble & bass and reduced midrange.

Same great performance and power
For the real tone-tweakers, we've retained the original Performance Mode as well, giving you full access to F1 Aura's powerful 3-band EQs, compressor and automatic anti-feedback. Includes case.

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.
