The Martin Acoustic-Electric for Any Performer
Your Martin DCPA4 Rosewood Performing Artist acoustic-electric brings you everything you'd expect from C.F. Martin & Company -- top-notch tone, attractive looks, and the ultimate in craftsmanship. With a solid-spruce-topped dreadnought-shaped body with rosewood back and sides, a close-action neck in a cozy Performing Artist profile, clear and dependable Fishman F1 Analog electronics, and a buttery black Richlite fingerboard of 20 frets, this acoustic-electric axe will take your acoustic game to the next level in performance and tone.
Classic Shape with Modern Fishman F1 Analog Electronics
Everyone knows the classic dreadnought shape -- it's the standard face in the acoustic guitar industry. For the DCPA4 Rosewood Performing Artist model, Martin takes it up a notch with a pickup/preamp system that takes an already astounding sound and amplifies it with a pristine signal. Your non-invasive and discreetly placed pickup/preamp system includes an onboard tuner, volume, and tone controls to help you shape your tone. You'll be able to switch seamlessly between acoustic and acoustic-electric with ease and effortlessness.
The Tonal Power of Spruce and Rosewood
Guitarists know how important tonewoods are to a guitar's sound -- that's why Martin went with a spruce/rosewood combo for your DCPA4's body. Solid spruce has a high stiffness-to-weight ratio and yields a bright and crisp tone. Rosewood keeps your sound punchy, featuring brighter tones while keeping your resonance nice and heavy. The end result is a pleasant collection of body with enough brightness that doesn't sound too tinny or trebly. And thanks to that all-solid-wood construction and classic dreadnought shape, this Martin offers excellent projection when you're performing unplugged!
Buttery Neck with Tight Action
Crafted from mahogany and other select hardwoods, the DCPA4's neck harnesses close and comfortable action over a 20-fretted black Richlite fingerboard. Just because you're playing an acoustic guitar doesn't mean your action can't be tight as well. You'll be surprised how much speed this cozy neck in a comfortable Performing Artist profile can bear -- making this acoustic-electric truly the right axe for any type of guitarist. Meanwhile, your DCPA4's 14-fret cutaway allows easy access to those higher notes -- updating the dreadnought shape to accommodate any performer.
