This guitar sounds great, and is very easy to play. The guitar stays in tune, while playing and even after many days of resting in the case. The guitar is well made, looks good, and is a great value. Buy one today, you will not be sorry.

Excellent guitar!

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 DCPA5K Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is AMAZING! After playing this one I could never justify paying more for a guitar. Right out of the box, after tuning, the action was very low without any hint of fret buzz. The quality of the sound can't be beat. The built-in tuner works great and the guitar stays in tune very well. I would definitely recommend this one to ANYONE looking to purchase a new guitar!

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 DCPA5K Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    (Acoustically) This guitar amazed me in every way possible. I love how I have so much control over the whole mind of the guitar. I can make it bright, and I can make it mellow. It is tonally interchangeable. Why this surprises me is because it has koa wood. Koa wood doesn't usually give a bright or mellow sound at all. But with the Spruce top, it the Spruce will definetely change the sound of anything.

    (Electronically)I am totally stunned with this guitar's electronic abilities. It takes the acoustic sound and carries it onto the P/A system, with an even clearer sound. You can hear every single little pick. The Fishman F1 Analog is a bit intimidating, but I watched some videos and it turned out to be super simple to manage.

    (Overall) I do use the recommended strings, which are the "Martin SP Lifespan: Light Gauge Phosphor Bronze". If you go on the sweetwater website, they are selling a 1-pack for 10.49 and a 2-pack for 15.99. Obviously, I got the 2-pack. Super super satisfied with the look, sound, and feel of the guitar. Couldn't be any more satisfied. Totally awesome.

    Beautiful instrument, beautiful sound

    By MomVee

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 DCPA5K Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar for my daughter, who's been breaking her heart over her grandmother's old, low-cost guitar--or borrowing a friend's plug-in for gigs. She is thrilled with it: "no buzz!" she said within seconds of picking it up. The neck isn't too big for her small hands. The sound is absolutely gorgeous, rich and smooth, and the guitar is a pleasure to hold and look at.

    My Second Martin purchase

    By wheeler750

    from Picton Ontario Canada

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 DCPA5K Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This instrument is just as good, if not better that some others 3 times the price .. It has a very rich tone even without the electric plugged in. It does not look that fancy, but it sure has the great sound and that's the main purpose

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 DCPA5K Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The second I picked up this guitar and started playing it I knew it was the one for me. Feels great in your hands and has an amazing martin tone with easy playability. Love the F1 electronics and built in chromatic tuner. I have only been playing for about four months and this guitar is my holy grail!! I do wish they would have used some kind of binding for the top as well as included a case for the guitar. When you are paying that kind of money for a guitar I think a case should be included! Other than that this is an amazing guitar and you will not be disapointed!! BUY ONE!!!
