Controlled with two low profile control buttons and a single large, bright LED display. Placed in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing.
NEW! Enhanced "Easy Mode" Simplifies Operation
F1 Aura+ offers a simplified set of user controls called Easy Mode. This mode allows you to quickly get a feel for the tonal possibilities of F1 Aura+ while providing quick access to the most important features you’ll need every day.
Simply press the Tone control to step through 3 custom-blended Aura Image presets as well as audition the uneffected, Gold Plus pickup sound. The one-knob Tone control blends between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (flat) on up to a “scooped” tone with emphasized treble & bass and reduced midrange.
Same great performance and power!
For the real tone-tweakers, Fishman has retained the original Performance Mode as well, giving you full access to F1 Aura’s powerful 3-band EQs, compressor and automatic anti-feedback.

Comments about Martin GPCPA1 Performing Artist Series Acoustic Guitar:
The GPCPA-1 in Madagascar Rosewood is an outright beautiful instrument. It is very attractive and the sound is fantastic, I find myself just sitting there, slowly strumming it, getting lost in the tone. The smaller body (as compared to the D28) is more comfortable to play. I've not really familiarized myself with the Fishman electronics yet, but the tuner is right on the money and easy to use. I absolutely love this guitar. I just wish I'd have thought to request factory pickup so that I could've enjoyed that experience too. The included case is nice, but I'm not sure that it's "Geib Style" unless they are talking about shape. It does seem durable and I'm sure it serves it's purpose. In summation, I've not gigged with the instrument yet, but it is everything I expected and more. I love it, and Musician's Friend's price match got it for me at a very reasonable price.
