The DCPA4 is part of Martin's Performing Artist range of Guitars aimed at guitarists who need a workhorse Guitar for on-stage use, with high quality on board pickup and electronics (Fishman F1 Analog), a fast and comfortable neck and overall a natural amplified tone.
Being at the higher end of the Performing Artist range the DCPA4 Dreadnought features a number of upgraded features like all solid wood construction (Solid Sitka Spruce top, solid Sapele back and sides) which ensures the tone ages and matures gracefully (Martin like to describe this by saying that no matter how good it sounds on day 1 that's the worst it's every going to sound!). It also features a simple dovetail neck join and subtle premium enhancements like solid East Indian Rosewood headplate and heelcap.
The Dreadnought shape has tons of bottom end and well controlled, compressed top end making it perfect for hard strummers!
