Martin’s Performing Artist Series guitars combine traditional Martin quality and construction with modern electronic features guaranteed to deliver on stage where it counts! Order your from Sam Ash Direct today.

The Martin DCPA4 Acoustic Electric Guitar is the latest in a long line of fine American hand crafted guitars dating back to the founding of the C.F. Martin & Company in 1833. Introduced by Martin CEO, Chris Martin IV (yes, the Martin guitar company is still owned by the family of its founder), the Martin DCPA4 Performing Artist Series model is a most affordable way to get the rich tone and quality of a hand crafted Martin Guitar with a traditional Martin gloss top finish.

The Martin DCPA4 Acoustic-Electric Guitar boasts a bookmatched solid Sitka Spruce soundboard with Martin’s “Hybrid X” scalloped bracing. The back and sides are constructed from solid African sapele, which possesses a similar aesthetic and tone as mahogany. The DCPA4 sports a single cutaway body design that allows for extended range in your lead playing for when you need to access those upper register notes. The slim taper neck with a Black Richlite fingerboard and traditional dot inlays will feel comfortable in your fretting hand. While the Martin DCPA4 is made with the finest original tonewoods, Martin was sensitive to the environmental issues of the rare hardwoods used in the traditional fingerboard. Richlite is an environmentally sustainable dense material made from renewable wood resources. Hard enough that it is used as a commercial kitchen countertop, it makes an environmentally responsible alternative to Rosewood and Ebony.

The Martin DCPA4 also features the easy to operate Fishman F1 Analog electronics system. Pickup system includes Sonicore under-saddle transducer with convenient side mounted volume and tone controls and on-board chromatic tuner.

Finally, the DCPA4 Acoustic-Electric Guitar comes with a Martin 345PA Brown Hardshell case when you’re ready to hit the road!Martin cases are specially engineered to compliment the construction of the Martin guitars, so they offer better protection than other cases.

Martin quality at a working musician’s price! Order your Martin DCPA4 Acoustic-Electric Guitar from Sam Ash Direct today with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy and take advantage of our fast, free shipping.

Its great sound and beautiful guitar


Is beautiful and great sound, the microphones is very good and smell very well




My money maker$$$


I sing and play alot of Johnny Cash so I needed a good strong bass sound and this guitar has it!!! And it also is good for lead playing through a good pa system. I already have a dc-1 but I needed a replacement to play and sound as good as this one since this was getting work done on it. It is a great guitar for the money. Out of all the guitars I bought over the years I wish I started out with a Martin, it was the sound I've been looking for. And now both my boys have Martins, I guess you could us call a Martin family now,you just can't go wrong with Martin Guitars thanks

Martin Workhorse Acoustic


Best Acoustic Guitar in the $1200 price range. Fishman F1 Analog Pickup is the simplest and best sounding pickup out there. Very low action. You can strum this guitar as hard as you want without it breaking up. Sounds sweet fingerpicking. Big wood tone. It was either this Martin, Taylor 314 ce or LOV-03 Larrivee. I chose the Martin DCPA4 on performance only. Great workingman guitar.
