Overview

The Martin DCPA5K acoustic electric guitar combines that world famous Martin Dreadnought sound with the contemporary playability of an electric guitar. Its solid Sitka spruce top is braced perfectly to give you a rich, full- bodied tone that is versatile enough for any musical situation. The body is rounded out with a forest-friendly Koa HPL back and sides to give you an attractive visual look.

As part of the Martin Performing Artist Series, this guitar was crafted to be a "players dream." The DCPA5K features a very playable laminate birch neck, with a Performing Artist neck taper. This precision-cut neck has a fast, FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and a 1-3⁄4 in. nut width, to give you the right amount of spacing between the strings.

Looking for electronics, the Martin DCPA5K comes complete with an on-board Fishman Sonitone. This soundhole- mounted-preamp features easy-to-use rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole for easy access while you are performing. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a studio-quality sound right out of the box.

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series DCPA5K Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The bridge moves around with the top. Never know what the action will be like. Neck laminations can all be felt on hand after very little use. Poorly finished neck. Played nice when I bought it. Six weeks later I hated it. Bad investment. Horrible guitar from Martin. Very disappointed.
