        Comments about Martin Custom Performing Artist DCPA4 Rosewood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        The pictures simply do not do this fine instrument justice. I opened the box and took the guitar out to find it was perfectly in tune! I played it for a solid 5 hours after that and was incredibly impressed. Not only with the tone but craftsmanship and playability. If you can swing the price I would highly recommend this instrament to anyone!

        Comments about Martin Custom Performing Artist DCPA4 Rosewood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I received this in the mail today and all i can say is WOW! I played 5 songs straight out of the box and the guitar was in perfect tune. Also it doesn't say on the specs, but this guitar comes with one sweet custom case as well. I am very much looking forward to utilizing this at my next gig. If you're considering this guitar do yourself a favor and BUY IT! You won't regret it for a single second.

        Comments about Martin Custom Performing Artist DCPA4 Rosewood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Musicians Friend's website stated 5 free sets of Martin SP strings on the day I ordered this guitar. Package arrived without the strings and the web ad does not show the free offer any longer.
        Guitar is a true Martin gem compared to my first Yamaha FG700S (that everyone claims is such a great guitar). Guess what? Pay a little more for a true American classic. This guitar is much smoother to play than the Yamaha, but why compare when there is really no comparison? The Martin produces such a beautiful sound when played both with or without the on board electrics.

        I have been happily playing my Ovation Balladeer guitar over 30 years not realizing the depth of sound and the clarity I have been missing. I'm extremely impressed with the craftsmanship and quality this instrument commands. This is a must have for all real guitar players,
