OVERVIEW

Just as adept at handling the road or creating great music at home or in the studio.

The Martin DCPA5 acoustic-electric guitar combines that world-famous Martin dreadnought sound with the contemporary playability of an electric guitar. Its solid Sitka spruce top is braced perfectly to give you a rich, full-bodied tone that is versatile enough for any musical situation. The body is rounded out with a forest-friendly mahogany HPL back and sides to give that classic Martin look.

As part of the Martin Performing Artist Series, this guitar was crafted to be a “player's dream.” The DCPA5 features a very playable laminate birch neck, with a Performing Artist neck taper. This precision-cut neck has fast FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and a 1-3/4” nut width, to give you the right amount of spacing between the strings.
Looking for electronics, the Martin DCPA5 comes complete with an onboard Fishman Sonitone. This soundhole-mounted preamp features easy-to-use rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole for easy access while you are performing. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a studio-quality sound right out of the box.

Case sold separately.
