The Martin BCPA4 Performing Artist Acoustic Electric Bass with Case has a deep and powerful voice, versatility (play it acoustically or plugged in), a fast, comfortable PA neck and cutaway body for accessibility anywhere up and down the fingerboard, and all at a very affordable price.

Everything about this acoustic bass says quality: solid sapele back and sides, solid Sitka spruce top with Martin's efficient A-frame bracing, an solid black Ebony belly bridge, a solid lightweight Spanish cedar neck with a bi-directional adjustable truss rod, Gotoh black bass tuners, and state-of the- art Fishman F1 Analog onboard electronics.

Overall Rating
If you want the best Acoustic Bass this is it.
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I love this bass unplugged it has a beautiful articulate tone and plugged in this bass really shines the controls are simple and the preamp is very nice if you want the best look no further.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
It's a Martin there is a reason they have been around for so long it shows from the moment you take the bass out of it's case till you hit your first note the quality control is amazing.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
My favorite feature is the simple preamp controls and the tuners turn with ease she also stays in tune which I like.
Are the controls logically laid out?
It's a big instrument but it's not unwieldy it feels comfortable in my arms sitting or standing.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth?
The tone is to die for it's articulate,deep and resonating and plugged in all of that is amplified sounds beautiful
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the finish and especially the ebony neck and bridge I also love the smell of the wood I just hope I don't get caught in public smelling my bass lol
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
At this price point I got exactly what I expected an incredible instrument made by the masters at Martin yes there are other nice basses that are much cheaper but when you want the best a bass that will last long enough to be handed down to future generations this is it.
How was the action out of the box?
The action out of the box was perfect I even love the strings.
