            THis is a great MARTIN product at a more affordable price..but dont let the smaller price tag fool you...the quality that Martin puts into their products is here in everyway. Tagging up with Fishman for electronics makes this guitar a top quality product at an affordable price. Play one for yourself...you WONT be dissapointed

                  Comments about Martin DCPA5 Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  If you are looking for that classic Martin tone, but at a affordable price, this is your guitar. The overall construction, and the solid Sitka spruce top is the main factor on why this guitar produces such a beautiful rich warm tone. The Fishman F1 Analog electronics system sounds great for recording, or in a live gig. The electronic controls are a volume and a tone knob with an on-board chromatic tuner. You will not go wrong with this guitar.

                    If you are looking for the legendary sound of a Martin w/ electronics, without digging to deep into your wallet, look no further! This guitar is simply amazing....so easy to play, one of the best sounding guitars in the price range I have ever laid my hands on. The fishman electronics perfectly reproduce that rich Martin sound in almost any setting making it an ideal guitar for record, jamming, or playing a gig! The overall quality of this guitar is nothing short or what you should expect from a Martin.

                      No longer do I feel I HAVE to spend over $2000 to get a great sounding Martin.

                      Solid top sounds amazing and will only improve with the more hours you put onto the guitar. Smooth tuners and excellent Fishman electronics. This guitar really does play well and stays locked on to tunings for a long time. Absolutely worth every penny. If youre considering buying a guitar in the $500-$600 range, do yourself a favor and save up the extra $100 or so.

                      Martin with Fishman electronics....need I say more?
