Martin DCPA5K Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics
You'll be ready to perform with Martin's GCPCA5K, which comes equipped with Fishman's F1 Analog electronics system. Fishman is a leader in acoustic amplification, and it shows in the natural tone it reproduces in the GCPCA5K acoustic-electric. The Fishman F1 system can replicate the sound of various studio microphones, for incredible tone on stage or recording directly.
Solid top for enhanced tone with age
Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the DCPA5K, Martin chose a solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a rich, lively sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top the tone will age gracefully as the wood matures, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
Smooth playability from the Performing Artist Series neck
Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin DCPA5K acoustic-electric. The DCPA5K features one of Martin's amazing Performing Artist series necks, whose slimmer profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort.

Excellent guitar for the money!
by Elliott from Surprise, AZI own a Martin DCPA1 and and 000-18 GE. I use both for solo/band work. My adult son finally decided he wanted to learn to play so I got him this as his "entry level' guitar. We found the set up from S... read more [+]weetwater to be excellent and I am blown away by the look and feel of this guitar. He loves it and is highly motivated to learn on it. Frankly, while my DCPA1 has a much nicer appearance, there just isn't that much difference in the overall acoustic sound between his and mine. The electronics of course are very different, but this one is worth every penny. close [-]

by Hessen Riff from Milwaukee, WIHave, literally, owned 'em all, except Luthier super high-end guitars, but this is certainly among my favorites.

I think it really shines when you change the strings, unless - of course - you like the Martin Phosphor Bronze that most of these come with direct from the factory. I prefer the 80/20 Plain Bronze Lights, and feel that any of the Martin strings work wonderfully, although I also like D'Addario EXP's and Elixir Nano's, as well. Martin Clear Tones also sound great. The guitar projects so much that the Phosphor Bronze seems a bit overkill on this one, but that's just my own opinion. The electronics are superb and this guitar can be shaped quite easily to coax out all of that big lush tone plugged in that you hear unplugged.
I love how it sounds through my PA and also when recording 'direct in'. I also play it through my LR Baggs DI box, which takes it to another stratosphere. Upgraded the pick-guard with a Tortoloid beveled edge vintage replacement, which really tweaked it's visual appeal significantly. Don't undertake that task unless you know what you're doing or get someone who does to help out. Need to be careful with proper removal of the original pick-guard and adhesive residue, before replacing correctly with another one.
Anyway, just an incredible guitar at any price. Great for both strumming (wow) and finger picking, as well. Very fast, warm neck and a most comfortable width and feel. You will never regret owning this one. This Martin is "The Real Deal"! close [-]
