      Martin Jumbo cutaway

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series Custom JCPA4 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I played this guitar and it immediately sparked my interest. You barely strummed it and out came out this beautiful sound. I went to play a Taylor 314ce right after and it sounded not as good comparing to the Martin. Just my opinin though. So full and articulate and the highs are unbelievable. The base is not as strong as a dreadnut but it is strong enough to me. This is a rare guitar and for the rice it is amazing. Not concerned with the A bracing at all since the sound is what I'm after. It is beautifull and I'll treasure it.

      • Very Hard Guitar To Play

      Best Uses

      • To Build Up Strong Hands

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series Custom JCPA4 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Poor sound for type of wood used. Can't tune open as chords will be sharp by almost a 1/4 note due to strings being too high off the neck. Poor location of 1/4" plug-in as it interfers with strap.
      Fisher electronics used in guitar does not compare
      to Taylor electronics I have in my Taylor 314CE.
      Martin sounded like an electrified guitar versus Taylor sounding like an amplified accoustic.
      The Martin fingerboard is too flat and difficult to note. The guitar is not easily played out of the box!

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series Custom JCPA4 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Great sounding guitar! It doesn't play as easy as my taylor but makes up for it with its full sound.nor does it stay in tune as well as my taylor314. Might change the tuners. All in all I'm happy with the beautiful sound. I was a little sceptical not seeing the specs displayed but was pleasantly surprised.

          Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series Custom JCPA4 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Fantastic guitar! Beautiful tone. Came setup a little high, but I had a luthier lower the strings and now it is easy to play. I also put light gauge strings on and it is still has an awesome tone. Bought this as an open box item and didn't really know what to expect. I can't tell that it's not brand new. Was looking at this one or the dcpa4 and went with this one. In my opinion it has the same rich tone and big sound but is easier to play.

            I was really impressed by this acoustic guitar. I had a $3k budget. After playing every acoustic GC had to offer, I kept coming back to this one. Do yourself a favor and try one today.
