The Martin DCPA1 with Madagascar rosewood is an exhibition of master-craftsmanship and comprehensive acoustic-electric guitar appointments. Thanks to a combination of brilliant tonewoods, thoughtful design and carefully engineered Fishman electronics, this Performing Artist series guitar offers you pristine clarity of sound and immense musical versatility.

Exceptional Tonewoods, Exceptional Design:

Even without the power boost from the built-in electronics, the classic Martin dreadnought body shape lends the DCPA1 a buoyant and robust sound easily capable of filling a small to mid-size venue. Imbued with exotic Madagascar rosewood back and sides and an exquisite Adirondack spruce top, the power of the DCPA1 is tempered by clear, articulate tone and exceptional response across its range. The tapered Artist Profile neck and increased string spacing make this Martin both comfortable to play and easy to use.

Fishman F1 Aura Imaging System Imparts Tonal Control

Loaded with features including an onboard chromatic tuner, 3-band EQ, volume and blend controls, anti-feedback control and more, the Fishman F1 Aura preamp and Acoustic Matrix undersaddle pickup deliver highly defined tone shaping capabilities that retain a strong acoustic quality. The advanced processing power of the F1 insures that a highly natural image of the DCPA1's sound is transferred directly to your PA system. An intuitive LED display and low-profile dual-knob interface make adjusting the F1's settings and preferences simple and straightforward.

Features:

- 41-Style pearl inlay

- 5/16-inch Adirondack scalloped braces
- Solid Black ebony fingerboard and bridge

Product Description

The Martin DCPA1 -- a very special dovetail Performing Artist guitar -- reflects the best of Martin innovation, expert craftsmanship and selection of superior tonewoods. As a PA series model, this dreadnought includes a unique slim tapered fast neck for exceptional player comfort in all positions, a smaller and lighter PA "belly" bridge for greater tonal response, and increased string spacing for easier finger picking. It also include the new state-of-the-art Fishman F1 Aura + onboard electronics system that deliver striking acoustic realism and projection.

Plugged in or pure acoustic, this is a great sounding guitar - and with good reason. The top is solid Adirondack spruce, pearl inlaid in the 41 style, and driven by 5/16 inch Adirondack scalloped braces, forward-shifted in the "Golden Era" X pattern. The back, sides, and headplate are Madagascar Rosewood, selected for its beauty and close acoustic and visual resemblance to Brazilian Rosewood. Solid black ebony is used for the fingerboard and bridge.

Details include grained Ivoroid bindings, Delmar beveled tortoise color pickguard, special "alternative torch" inspired position inlays, gold enclosed tuners, bone nut and saddle. One of the most distinctive Performing Artist production models to date.
