Gorgeous tone and amazing Fishman electronics.
The Martin Performing Artist DCPA1 acoustic guitar comes very close to setting a standard in acoustic-electric guitars for player comfort and performance. The Performing Artist Series was designed to blend Martin's legendary guitar tone and appointments with player-friendly features for outstanding playability and tonal performance. This wonderful Martin acoustic guitar features solid Sitka spruce top, 2-ring rosette, Solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, solid ovangkol binding, 25.4" scale length, 1-3/4" width at nut, solid black ebony bridge, and gold tuning machines enclosed with large buttons.
Articulate, yet powerful, the new Fishman Aura Blender electronics system delivers stunning realism and projection in an easy-to-use onboard preamp system. With only 2 low profile knobs and a single LED display, F1 Aura offers advanced features in a minimalist design: digital chromatic tuner, volume and blend controls, independent 3-band EQ for both pickup and image signals, compressor, phase control and an automatic antifeedback filter with up to 3 notches.
The genius of the F1 Aura guitar system is its ability to replicate the sound of 9 different world-class studio microphones. Here, Fishman engineers have captured the distinctive audio "image" that these high-quality microphones "hear" and allow you to blend it in with the legendary Martin Gold Plus undersaddle pickup. The Gold Plus undersaddle pickup is sensitive along its entire length for responsive, lively sound with no string spacing problems. The Delmar tortoise pickguard tops off its gorgeous appointments.

This guitar is absolutely gorgeous. It sounds incredible plugged in and also electric. The Fishman Aura system is very easy to use and sounds great. I love the different Mic settings that it has. And the feedback cancelling system works awesome.I was lucky enough to buy mine with a bit of damage that didnt affect the playability or sound, otherwise I probably wouldnt have been able to afford it.If you buy this guitar you wont regret it.
I have been playing acoustic guitar onstage for over 30 years, and this is without a doubt the best sounding amplified acoustic ever made. It really has an amazing "recording studio" sound with the Aura microphone modeling. There's never been a better built-in pickup and effects system than this, and with the dreadnaught model, you really get the full advantage of the amazing Martin bottom end with a nicely metallic, piano-y sound. I've had this guitar for 5 months now, and it is absolutely the last acoustic guitar I will ever need to buy. Martin is giving a lot of guitar for a very reasonable price with this one.
This is definetly a new path for Martin. This guitar rings out beautifully and sounds amazing. I have never been a huge Martin fan but this guitar has won me over. The rosewood is beautiful and the craftsmanship is second to none. Straight acoustic or through an acoustic amp this guitar covers it all. The action is perfect and it plays effortlessly. I chose this guitar over a Taylor. This will be a guitar that will stay in my arsenal. Kudos to Martin for this new series of acoustic guitars.
