Product Description

The Martin OMCPA1 acoustic electric guitar is well balanced, offering warm bass response with crisp, clear trebles. Featuring legendary Martin tone, the OMCPA1 acoustic electric guitar has striking aesthetic features and onboard intelligence. The OMCPA1 is in the Performing Artist Series will take your body, mind and soul to new heights.

The Performing Artist Series integrates two dream guitars: a traditional acoustic with a contemporary acoustic electric. The sweet spot is its versatility, plugged or unplugged. Simplicity and intelligence are beautifully crafted into every detail, inside and out.

Onboard Intelligence
The heart of this onboard intelligence is its ability to replicate nine different world-class studio microphones.

The Fishman F1 Aura combines incredibly high-end acoustic sound images, onboard digital tuner and a powerful set of tone shaping features for endless tonal versatility.

An impressive array of professional features, including a compressor, phase control, automatic anti-feedback filter and an independent 3-band EQ for both the Gold Plus pickup and the Aura Image signals.

Neck and Fingerboard
The Performing Artist models feature a more parallel neck profile with a slimmer taper at the 12th fret, giving the guitar comfortable width in the first few frets plus a faster feel for lead work.

Satin finish neck and a smooth cutaway provides extreme ease of play up and down the fingerboard.

Playability and Feel
My third Martin
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Flawless in every aspect but one...and it really is the only complaint I have. The fret work could have used a little tweaking. As you slide your hand up and down the neck you can really feel the ends of the frets...almost catching. I'll probably have the edges dressed, but other than that I can't find anything wrong with this guitar.
How has it stood up over time?
Still to be determined. I'm curious how the electronics will hold up over time. Unplugged is just magnificent.
Your general opinion of this product.
This is my technically my third Martin. My first was a DM-1 years ago that I just couldn't do anything with. I ended up selling it for what I paid, so at least it held it's value. The second Martin is a backpacker that I've had now for about 14 years. It's been to hell and back and still sounds sweet. And now my third is the OMCPA1. I was sitting in Afghanistan on deployment, and contemplating buying a Taylor with some of my hard earned money, when I came across the video for this guitar. It had all the specs I was looking for and being a huge Steve Howe fan and a fan of 'that' Martin sound, I decided to take a chance and purchase this guitar. I've not been disappointed.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Other than the fret end issue I mentioned earlier, the guitar feels great. Weight and balance is even, the neck, for me, was just right, and the top very expressive.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
You can get everything with this guitar...might need to try different string gauges for darker or brighter for your taste, but for me this Martin was a perfect purchase.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Gorgeous...loved the wood binding and contrasting colors of the different woods used throughout the guitar. Also really like the use of abalone on the guitar rather than MOP...lends it an even classier look.
How was the action out of the box?
I've read that Martins have a just slightly higher action than most other popular acoustics, and this one was no exception. It's not uncomfortable, but just slightly noticeable.
