The Ultimate Martin Stage Guitar!What happens when you merge the classic look and feel of a traditional Martin acoustic guitar with the convenience of today's modern acoustic-electric? You get the Performing Artist series, that's what! Like so many classic Martins from years past, the Performing Artist series is crafted using nothing but the finest tonewoods, with solid Sitka spruce for the top and solid East Indian rosewood making up the back and sides. Add to this a satin-finished neck, a unique neck carve, and a convenient cutaway, and you've got a guitar that's downright inspiring to play. But this is only half the story.
Martin takes the acoustic-electric on an evolutionary journey, equipping these axes with the Fishman F1 Aura. Far more than a simple pickup system, the F1 Aura combines high-end acoustic sound images, an onboard digital tuner, a compressor, a phase control, an EQ, and anti-feedback control. In short, it's everything that you need to be in complete control of your onstage sound. Coupled with the tonewood selection, this is truly a huge step forward for amplified acoustic guitar. This is the Performing Artist DCPA1, which boasts the classic Martin dreadnought sound.

This guitar is just simply amazing.
. I The Inton... read more [+]ation is true and tuning is stable (Best I have had in a Flat top).Excellent fit finish and materials, beautiful inlay work.
It is stunning to look at in an understated sort of way. I would compare it to a beauty queen going camping in jeans and a plaid shirt with no makeup. It is simply a natural beauty shining through.
It sounds like a Martin, very close to a D28HDV with a bit less volume and low end but more discrete string soundings with hard strumming. It has great pick response. It almost anticipates what you want from it and then gives it to you. I found it also works great with finger styles. The overall sound, volume, clarity, and timber blew me away. I sold my HD 35.
I use it direct for recording and I have many great mic choices but I don't use or need them. This guitar has all the sounds I need built in! The 9 different world class mic images are excellent and the bridge pickup is also great .The ability to blend the two sounds leaves one with an unlimited palate of sound choices. The compressor and anti feedback filter are great on stage and the tuner is easy to see and use.
The neck is fast and plays almost like a good electric. Great action with no buzz. Its unique neck shape allows for intricate chords high up the neck with lots of finger room.
All of the above and more.
If you buy one of these guitars, plan to keep it because you won't be able tout it down or ever give it up.
I do not work for or and not affiliated in any way with CF Martin, Sweet Water, or any of their distributers or agents. I have not taken, been offered or received any form of remuneration for this review. I feel I found a master piece and just want everyone to try one out for them and pass on the good news. close [-]

Unfortunately, my other guitars are just going to collect dust. Martin has hit a home run with this guitar. The F1 pickup system is simply AMAZING. This still has that Martin tone, not as bassy as my 28, but WOW. I can't wait for this guitar to open up over the months and years ahead.
The neck feels like it was made for me. It is the most sonically balanced guitar I have ever played . It has an understated beauty that is worthy of the Martin name. Martin has found the perfect balance of sound (most important), features and beauty. The only knock I could give it is really not with the guitar, but the case is very ordinary. Thank you Martin for bringing this guitar to market. If you can find one BUY IT! close [-]
