Overview

The Martin OMCPA4 Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar is constructed with solid tonewoods. The back and sides are matched from African sapele, similar in appearance and tone to mahogany. Bookmatched Sitka spruce soundboards utilize Martin's Hybrid "A-Frame" scalloped bracing.

The OMCPA4 features a slim, more parallel taper at the 12th fret, allowing for a more comfortable playing width up the neck. The bridge spacing is also modified to 2 3/16" - splitting the difference between Martin's two traditional spacings.

Along with the look, feel, and enhanced performance of Martin's existing Performing Artist Series models, the OMCPA4 also has the new, simplified Fishman F1 Analog electronics system. Includes case.

    Solid, Great Sounding Guitar

    By Alan A.

    from Huntsville AL

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've had mine about four months . . . one of the best guitar set-ups out of the box I've encountered. Plays great . . . distinct, well rounded, and full sound both acoustically and amplified . . . compared it to a Taylor and dollar for dollar the Martin OMCPA4 is a real winner. Every picker I've let play it says it's just a great guitar. This one is a keeper.

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Great workhorse guitar. Got this guitar at the local big box retailer. Tried everything. had my heart set on a gibson but found the sound dead. This martin was alive, resonate, and even. The Taylors were too brittle, and the gibsons boomy. This one played as well as the taylor but had that clasic martin tone. On a side not, the electronic system works very well and produces a fairly accurate representation of the sound. simple interface and easy to change out batery. Light, comfortable and good sounding keeper. She's a real nice gal!

      beautiful.

      By matt

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      i usually try to wright my reviews a long time after i purchase the product to avoid biased opinions for or against the product. exactly 2 years ago, i went to my local guitar shop looking for an above status quo instrument. something exceptional in both sound and looks, in playability on and off the stage. as soon as i played this guitar, i knew it was the one. the fish man f1 electronics are fantastic and the tuner is incredibly useful. the sound of this guitar is almost harp-like, it resonates so well. the two years i have had it have been ones of beautiful song and melody. i would not recommend just ordering however. go to you're local guitar shop (the center of guitars if you know what i mean) and try every guitar out. martin and taylor. find one that fits you. have a nice day and play on my friends.

      Best Uses

      • Gigging

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I actually traded up for this, I had the Martin satin-finished GPCPA4(I think?) model which sounded a bit muffled. Then I bought the comparable-priced Taylor, but traded that for this beautiful Martin. It's well-rounded and balanced in tone. I will say though that truthfully it does not compare to my Martin HD-28. But it's good for me to use for gigging. I keep my HD28 for playing at home. If you are a gigging musician and want a nice reliable reasonably priced guitar (with some haggling of course), get this one!

      Martin's Budget Wonder!

      By David Lazerow

      from Hartford, CT

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've owned several Martin's and was looking for a reasonably priced model that sounded good. Out of the box the action and playability was better than all the others in this price range. Went to my Martin-approved luthier who made a good box into a much better one. Now I hadn't played for a while since I had been guitarless for too long so it took a few weeks to get my fingers into shape. Now I feel like I'm back in the music groove with my sweet Martin. the sapele neck back 'n sides with the spruce top sounds very, very good and is coherent and refined from top to bottom, if a bit bright, similar to some of the Taylors and the workmanship top-notch. The Fishman F-1 analog pickup system sounds just fine with my cheapie Harbinger PA. the micarta fingerboard and bridge material does the job and has a good feel to it. I'm using D'addario PB custom lights instead of the light guage Martin strings it came with. I strongly suggest trying out as many guitars as you can and when you find one that feels and sounds wonderful that you take it immediately to your authorized Martin guy and have it evaluated and professionally set up. You should get returned privileges when you buy from an authorized dealer if you decide your purchase isn't working for ya. Happy playing!

      • Great All Around Guitar

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Bought this guitar approx 2 wks ago and played out with it several times. Mine has spruce top with sapele back & sides. Has warm sound that I like and plays like an electric with no buzz anywhere on the frets. Plays & sounds nice plugged in (my Fender amp ) or acoustic. Small body size is very comfortable to play and compact to take on gigs. Try this one and others in this price range. No Contest. Made in USA , all wood, sounds great, plays like butter,affordable. Thank you Martin !!

        A great USA made guitar. Had to have it professionally set up as the strings were to heavy and also to high. Now it is one great playing guitar. Sounds fantastic also!

        Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series OMCPA4 Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        so, i am a guitarist in my church, and for a long time i had a cheap rouge guitar which wasn't cutting it. and so i went to my local guitar store and i tried out this guitar. that was it, i was in love. the tuner mutes the guitar when its plugged in, and the guitar is also very light. when playing un-plugged this guitar has GREAT projection. this guitar is also very to play. and its also a great bonus that it comes with a hardshell case. all in all, this guitar is an awesome addition to anyone's collection. i expect this guitar to be with me for a long tome.
