[NAMM] New Martin PA4 Models
Martin Guitar is showcasing the five new PA models it announced this past October – all for the first time at NAMM.
New PA4 Models
Like their rosewood PA1, PA2 and PA3 predecessors, the DCPA4, GPCPA4 and OMCPA4 are constructed with solid tonewoods. The back and sides are matched from African sapele, similar in appearance and tone to mahogany. Bookmatched Sitka spruce soundboards utilize Martin's Hybrid “A-Frame” scalloped bracing. Each of the new models features the slim, more parallel taper at the 12th fret, allowing for a more comfortable playing width up the neck.
The bridge spacing is also modified to 2 3/16” – splitting the difference between Martin’s two traditional spacings. Along with the look, feel and enhanced performance of the existing Performing Artist Series models, these fresh additions also feature the new, simplified Fishman F1 Analog electronics system.
