Whether unplugged or plugged in you get great tone.

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series BCPA4 4-String Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:
The bass is well made and has a very punchy deep bass sound when not plugged in. Martin should have left it at that. Plugged in is horrible. It is boomy and really shows the dead frets on the bass.
I sold my Ovation acoustic electric to buy this one. Bad move. The ovation was a much better instrument.
On the good side, unplugged it is great and will hold its own playing with guitars like the D-28etc. Martin needs to re-think this one.
One more note, it took two tries before I got one that worked well, and I'm going in to get the electronics fixed again this weekend.
