From Our Research Team:
Your Stage-ready Martin!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 Sapele 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 guitar on an evolutionary journey, equipping these instruments with the Fishman F1 Analog electronics system. Far more than a simple pickup system, the discreetly mounted F1 Analog system offers a convenient onboard tuner as well as volume and tone controls to help take charge of your sound. This is the Performing Artist DCPA4, a well-balanced instrument that's great for any style of music.

Cant be beat for Quality & Money!!
by Dan Fuentes from MinnesotaAfter playing just about every guitar I could put my hands on that was comparable in style, quality, options and price , I couldnt find anything even close to the DCPA4! I was looking for American mad... read more [+]e with solid wood and a great pickup. This is it...if you are looking for a cut-away nothing touches it in playability , tone, fingering , neck speed. I was a bit leary buying site un-seen from Sweetwater, but Mark Bruhn and the staff were perfect. The guitar was pristine and the packaging looked like it came from Fort Knox. I'm sold on Sweetwater and Martin!! close [-]

Martin Performing Artist DCPA4
by Daniel Stapleton from United StatesI did research before buying, but was still surprised by the way this guitar plays and sounds. I am very impressed with the neck - ease of play up to the higher register, and also the satin finish is ... read more [+]nice. I mostly perform unplugged, so this guitar is what I have been seeking after for good projection to accompany my vocals. The on board tuner is a nice touch and the ease of use and minimalist features of the electronics in general are a plus as well. With a hard shell case built into the price, I can't seem to figure a reason why you should not buy one : ) close [-]

by LeRoy Lewis from Virginia Beach, VAI played a bunch of different guitars today including Taylors, Martins, Seagulls, and Breedloves.

However, I also wanted to check out other guitars in the $1000-$1500 price range. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoyed playing all of the guitars that I picked up and would be excited to have any one of them as a gift or what have you. But if Im spending my hard earned money on one of these guitars, without a doubt Im buying the DCPA4. I hadn't even considered this guitar when I walked into Guitar Center today. I really liked the shape and size of the GPCPA4 and was sure it was the one for me. I didn't like the look of the dreadnought as much. In fact it was maybe my least favorite appearance wise. Ive got to go with sound over appearance and I will own this guitar very soon. Play it and you will know what I mean. close [-]
