The DCPA4 is one of the most affordable Performing Artist Series guitars yet, with Martin adding more tonal colour and variety to the range with the DCPA4.
Performing Artist Series Dreadnought
Built to be suitable for long playing sessions, this all-solid dreadnought features a 14-fret Venetian cutaway design, and offers a highly playable neck with fast, comfortable action.
In place of mahogany, the satin-finished back and sides is constructed from African sapele, a wood very similar in appearance and tone to mahogany but is far cheaper to manufacture and better for the environment. This great alternative helps to significantly bring the performance-to-cost ratio down on the DCPA4.
A Solid Sitka Spruce top is beautifully finished in a polished natural wood gloss that offers great sustain and warmth which carries through for stage players thanks to Fishman's analogue A1 electronics system.
