Fishman F1 Analog
For the cleanest noise-free sound, turn the Volume knob as high as possible without causing your amp or mixer to distort.

This innovative one-knob tone control lets you choose between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (fully counter-clockwise) on up to a "mid- scooped" tone with emphasized treble & bass and reduced midrange.

Use the Phase control to improve bass response at low volume and suppress feedback at high volume. To adjust, press and release the Tone knob several times and leave it in the position most pleasing to your ear.

Press+hold Volume 2 seconds to turn tuner on. Press Volume once to turn it off. This digital chromatic tuner accommodates all tunings and mutes the output when engaged .It can be activated without an instrument cable connected, in which case it will turn itself off after 30 seconds of inactivity. Includes case.

    My Dream Guitar CUST GPCPA4 GT

    By William

    from Warren, MI

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPCPA4 Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    All my life there were 2 Guitars I wanted to own, 1)Gibson Les Paul (Bought one in 1978) Made some good money Performing with it, but no longer have it. Only downside to the Les Paul, VERY HEAVY. 2)A Heads Up; if you look at the specs of the CF Martin CUST GPCPA4 GT. it says the Top Wood is Recycled Sitka Spruce. so I'm Thinking Plywood. Upset I contacted Martin, in reality it should say "Reclaimed Wood" this is "SOLID SITKA SPRUCE" Taken from an old Bridge they tore down in Canada. Imagine a Solid Slice of Vintage Spruce Aged to Perfection. Wow! Bought one a week or two ago. I checked out alot of the Martins, There was a good selection to choose from.Of course I had to balance Sound, Ease of Play, and Cost. I Decided on the CF Martin CUST GPCPA4 GT. Ordered some 10s (Strings)from the Martin website (Guitar came with 12s)The 12s were too Tight for me I like to stretch and bend the strings. Put the 10s on. Perfect, ease of play improved condiderably without losing that sweet sound only a Martin has. When I plugged it into my Vintage 1964 Fender Deluxe Reverb Amp it was incredible. There are Remakes of the 1965 and even though they have Tubes, The sound is not as good. although I did plug the Martin into a different amp it sounded real good but could not touch the Combo of The Martin with the Vintage 1964 Amp. I Love the fact that this Guitar Has History because of the Vintage Solid Sitka Spruce Top. Very Cool.
