Martin Performing Artist Series Guitars
The Martin Performing Artist Series sets a new standard in acoustic/electric guitars, for great
acoustic tone, great electronics, great playability, and great looks. Each comes with the great
Martin/Fishman AURA electronics and a Martin hardshell case.
Martin Performing Artist Acoustic Guitar Tone
Each Performing Artist Series Guitar is built to Martin’s highest standards of craftsmanship.
All of the richness of tone that has made Martin the standard by which all other guitars are judged
is in the Performing Artist Series. All solid tone wood are used in construction and traditional
Martin bracing lets the Performing Artist guitars resonate like no others.
Performing Artist Playability
Each Martin Performing Artist Guitar features a comfortable slim tapered neck that makes it
equally easy to play at the down near the headstock as it is to play up at the cutaway. The cutaway
lets you reach beyond the twelfth fret.
Martin Performing Artist Electronics
Performing Artist Series Guitars feature the newly designed Fishman® F1 Aura™ onboard
electronics. Clear, powerful, and simple to use, this new Fishman system is the best way to amplify
the pure, rich Martin Guitar tone.
With only two low-profile knobs and a single LED display, F1 Aura offers all this: digital
chromatic tuner, volume and blend controls, independent 3-band EQ for both pickup and image
signals, compressor, phase control and an automatic anti-feedback filter with up to three notches.
The genius of the F1 Aura is its ability to replicate the sound of nine different world-class
studio microphones. Here, Fishman engineers have captured the distinctive audio "image" that these
high-quality microphones "hear" and allow you to blend it in with the legendary Martin® Gold Plus
