The plain top and satin lacquer finish are what makes this guitar more affordable for dedicated players who may not otherwise be able to afford one.  This ES-335 features a maple top, back and rims, which are joined with a solid maple center block and mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The ’57 Classic humbuckers translate the body’s natural resonance into haunting jazz tones or blinding distorted leads.

1960s slim taper neck profile is very fast and comfortable while bound top and back, vintage tulip tuners, nickel hardware, and mother-of-pearl inlays add up to fantastic visual appeal.

Its comfort and balance are second to none. The Performing Artist Series was designed to blend Martin’s legendary guitar tone and appointments with player-friendly features for outstanding playability and tonal performance. The DCPA1 features a solid Sitka spruce top, 2-ring rosette, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, solid ovangkol binding, 25.4″ scale length, 1-3/4″ width at nut, solid black ebony bridge, and gold tuning machines enclosed with large buttons.

The Fishman Aura Blender electronics are simply amazing as well. They provide an easy-to-use, powerful, and great sounding amplification. They keep it simple with only 2 low profile knobs and a single LED display which control a digital chromatic tuner, volume and blend controls, independent 3-band EQ for both pickup and image signals, compressor, phase control and an automatic anti-feedback filter with up to 3 notches.
