The Martin DCPA4 electro acoustic guitar is designed for the performer who demands powerful tone with a comfortable playing feel. The familiar shape of this guitar makes it accessible to everyone, with a carefully selected combination of tonewoods that produces a truly unique timbre.

The body is crafted to the classic dreadnought-cutaway shape for easier access to the upper frets. This is a body profile designed to produce incredibly robust tones with a full-bodied response across the dynamic range. Whether you're a finger-picker or prefer to play with a plectrum; favour softly stroking the strings or attack them hard and fast, this body shape yields clearly defined notes every time.

The combination of tonewoods that have been used to craft the DCPA4 are solid sapele for the back and sides, with a solid Sitka spruce top. The sapele creates richly textured and complex tones with lots of emphasis on low-end to midrange power, generating a character that makes each model unique. The bright-sounding spruce top tempers the power produced by the sapele by infusing upper frequency clarity into the mix. It is also incredibly flexible, which allows it to project sound very efficiently.

Martin's hybrid "X" scalloped bracing pattern allows the top to resonate fully whilst supporting it fully. You can rest assured that as with all guitars that Martin produce, the DCPA4 is a workhorse that is most definitely built to last. The repeated playing of this guitar - in every environment you can think of - will enable it to develop a character that is completely unique to that of any other model.

An exquisitely detailed Delmar tortoiseshell colour pickguard protects the underside of the strings. The edging around the top is protected by black boltaron binding to ensure no unwanted nicks or chips affect the soundboard's ability to perform.

The select hardwood neck is combined with a black richlite fingerboard, working together to create a crisp and articulate counterpoint to the powerful body shape and tonewoods. No matter how hard you may strike the strings, you will only ever get a joyful tone of the utmost definition. Offset white ABS dots guide your way up the fingerboard as you play.

To make the DCPA4 truly versatile, Martin have installed the Fishman F1 analog electronics system, allowing you to take you sound to the next level and play to a much larger audience. The Fishman F1 perfectly represents the tonal output of the DCPA4 without distortion of the signal, simply amplifying it. This is exemplified by the simplistic control setup of a single volume control and a single tone control. Simply plug in using the 1/4" jack and you're good to go. A built-in digital chromatic tuner makes it quick and easy for you to check your tuning after each song. The useful low battery indicator will guarantee that you know exactly when to change it so you'll never need to have that mid gig panic of suddenly dropping out of the mix.

The Martin DCPA4 is a beautiful electro acoustic, completed in a shaded natural finish that is perfect for guitarists/singer-songwriters who're looking for a guitar that offers loads of midrange power with detailed precision. It comes with a 345 hardshell case so you're ready to gig as soon as it arrives.
