What happens when you merge the classic look and feel of a traditional Martin acoustic guitar with the convenience of today's modern acoustic/electric? You get the Performing Artist series, that's what! Like so many classic Martins from years past, the Performing Artist series is crafted using nothing but the finest tonewoods, with solid Sitka spruce for the top and solid East Indian rosewood making up the back and sides. Add to this a satin-finished neck, a unique neck carve, and a convenient cutaway, and you've got a guitar that's downright inspiring to play. But this is only half the story.
Martin takes the acoustic/electric on an evolutionary journey, equipping these axes with the Fishman F1 Aura. Far more than a simple pickup system, the F1 Aura combines high-end acoustic sound images, an onboard digital tuner, a compressor, a phase control, an EQ, and anti-feedback control. In short, it's everything that you need to be in complete control of your onstage sound. Coupled with the tonewood selection, this is truly a huge step forward for amplified acoustic guitar. This is the Performing Artist OMCPA1, a well-balanced instrument that's great for any style of music.
