Martin's DCPA1 Plus Performing Artist acoustic-electric guitar is a solid axe for any performer of any style to take to the stage. The DCPA1 Plus pairs classic Martin design with modern electronics, for an instrument that's ready to project amazing tones in an amplified scenario. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce-topped body with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, hybrid X-scalloped body bracing, a smooth neck shaped in Martin's easy-to-handle Performing Artist profile, a cool-looking Delmar tortoise-colored pickguard, a black Richlite saddle and fingerboard with 20 frets, and pristine Fishman F1 Aura Plus electronics with an onboard tuner to keep your intonation in check. You get a solid slice of what Martin has to offer with this beautiful dreadnought acoustic-electric!

Solid Sitka Spruce and East Indian Rosewood Body

Nothing affects your acoustic's tone more than the tonewoods it's made out of. Your Martin DCPA1 sports a Sitka spruce top with East Indian rosewood back and sides. Sitka spruce provides a broad dynamic range and mixes well with other woods like mahogany and rosewood to communicate a strong and crisp articulation. Rosewood pushes your lows and highs in an almost perfect balance of sonic resonance, keeping your tone mixed in a well-balanced combination of brightness and darkness.

Dependable and Crystal Clean Fishman F1 Aura Plus Electronics

What good are top tonewoods without the proper electronics to project your playing in a full-bodied manner? Your DCPA1 houses a dependable and crystal-clear Fishman F1 Aura Plus pickup/preamp system to capture the deep and full sound this beautiful Martin acoustic-electric axe can deliver. An onboard tuner is also at your side to help keep your intonation in check. Switching between acoustic and acoustic-electric settings on this baby is as easy and as seamless as can be.

A Neck that Plays Like Butter

Many guitarists don't often associate higher playing speeds with the necks of acoustic guitars. Your Martin DCPA1's select hardwood neck is cut into a comfortable and relaxed Performing Artist profile. As you wrap your hand around this appendage, you'll instantly notice how tight this baby's action is. Your fingers will glide like a breeze over its smooth-as-glass black Richlite fingerboard of 20 frets. See how fast your fingers can push themselves with this amazingly comfortable neck.

Product Description

zZounds Expert Review
The Martin DCPA1 Plus acoustic is a phenomenal guitar, with the looks to match. The solid East Indian rosewood back and sides of this guitar give it such a rich and nuanced tone. The depth that it gives chords make it a joy for me to play. Because I'm really into fingerpicking, I gave it a shot and it sounded great on this guitar. The lows are firm but not overpowering, and it gives the guitar a good amount of tonal balance. The DCAP1 Plus projects very well and is nice and lively. On top of all that, the aesthetics are insane and are sure to impress, like the Arrows and Squares fretboard inlays or the beautiful solid ovangkol wood body binding. This is a remarkably nice guitar and is an all-around gem.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
