Overview

The Performing Artist Series DCPA3 Acoustic-Electric Guitar integrates two dream guitars: a traditional acoustic with a contemporary acoustic electric. The sweet spot is its versatility, plugged or unplugged.

This DCPA3 features a more parallel neck profile with a slimmer taper at the 12th fret, giving the guitar comfortable width in the first few frets plus a faster feel for lead work. A satin finish neck and smooth cutaway provides extreme ease of play up and down fingerboard.

Play the DCPA3 and you'll experience something unique: legendary Martin tone with a major evolution in onboard electronics for an extremely powerful sonic signature.

The new Fishman F1 Aura 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.

The F1 Aura is controlled with two low profile control buttons and a single large, bright LED display. It's placed in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing. Look down and it's right there. It offers simple access to the impressive array of professional features:

Digital chromatic tuner

Volume and blend controls

Independent 3-band EQ for both Gold Plus pickup and Aura Image signals

Compressor

Phase control

Automatic anti-feedback filter with up to 3 notches

Martin craftsmanship and premium quality materials are evident in every detail of the DCPA3. Integrated with striking aesthetic features, player comfort, and of course exceptionally sweet tone, this guitar represents the ultimate Martin experience.

Great Right out of the box.

By Christopher Noteboom

from Huntington Beach, CA

I love my DCPA3. I've had it about a year now and it just keeps getting better. The sound is opening up a little and is simply amazing. Martin's are usually know for having to be set up when they're new. This guitar had perfect action and great playabillity from day one. The onboard controls take a little to get used to if you're trying to dail in everything this guitar can do. The 9 presets do make it pretty easy to find a starting point in any atmosphere. Overall the DCPA3 is the best guitar I've played by far in this pricerange!!!
