The Performing Artist Series OMCPA3 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 OMCPA3 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 OMCPA3 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
¢Phase control
¢Automatic anti-feedback filter with up to 3 notches

Martin craftsmanship and premium quality materials are evident in every detail of the OMCPA3. Integrated with striking aesthetic features, player comfort, and of course exceptionally sweet tone, this guitar represents the ultimate Martin experience.

Great Stage Guitar

By Ryan

from Lafayette, IN

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA3 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar sounds great on its own, but it really shines is when it's plugged in. The Aura system really takes it up a notch. The system is a lot easier to setup then it first appears and once you get it where you want it the sound is great. The ease of play is a huge upgrade from the dreadnaught I was playing.

such an incredible guitar

By Christopher Wright

from west palm beach, florida

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA3 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Honestly, I'm blown away by this thing. I'm so blown away I went through the process of making an account here just so I can let people know the deal with this instrument. I spent hours playing countless acoustic guitars from all price ranges and as soon as I picked this thing up and played it I knew it was the one. To equal it I would've had to shell out multiple thousands more. It looks amazing, not over the top or elaborate, can best be described as functional beauty. You can tell looking at it that its' incredible quality, and it's sole purpose is to make unbelievable music. It doesn't try to look amazing, it just is it. The sound is makes is so crisp, and actually, at least in this isolated case, this guitar is deeper and fuller toned than its larger versions. Just pure martin sound, really beautiful. I've never been so inspired by a guitar before, just can make the most beautiful music with it. Everyone should be given a guitar like this and learn how to make music. The world would be a better place. Then I plugged it in. Honestly, I've never personally played a plugged in acoustic that sounds like this. It's so clear and accurate and beautiful, the different sounds it makes is impressive once you get the hang of the aura system. I intuitively figured it out just by listening to the change in tone for about 10 minutes and dialed it into this rich, unbelievably full tone that honestly puts almost any guitar I've ever heard to shame. Just for kicks I clicked on the distortion, took a few paces back from the amp and it sounds insanely good. Like, classic rock sounds amazing no particular need for a les paul lying around, kind of sound. That impressed me the most. Such clear, full distortion. As far as I'm concerned this guitar is perfect. It's built so flawlessly I can just sit and stare at it and smell it like, in awe of it lol. Now I have to figure out how to keep my fingers from being destroyed due to never-ending playing. I'll find a way. Just go try it, if its as good as the guitar in my hands, you'll enjoy it.
