By: go7 from Nanaimo B.C. Canada
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very good quality. I expect no problems. Have played it hard for a year on stage and at home. Martin quality.
How has it stood up over time?
1 year of heavy use on stage and at home. So far no problems.
Your general opinion of this product.
A great package. Martin finally has a very good acoustic electric w/ the Martin sound
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The new PA series necks are a new carve for Martin. Well done.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The OMCPA1 sounds like a Martin got a bit of growl. After a year the tone has improved noticeably. Nice rosewood overtones and very well balanced. I played the GPCA1 for about 6 months and it did not sound like a Martin.
How did the stain or paint job look?
In this price range you expect a good finish and quality construction. It delivers.
How was the action out of the box?
Generally Martins come w/ high action and require a good set up to reach their potential. I took it to my guitar tech and he did no adjustments. a 1st.
