Martin Performing Artist guitars.. Maury's hands on experience

Martin's new Performance Artist series guitars have re-set the bar when it comes to acoustic-electric tone.  I spent some quality one-on-one time with these new models in the sound room at Martin.  Dave Evans and Tim Teel were there to get me up to speed on these terrific new instruments.

Theses guitars are brand-new designs.  Almost everything about them has been redesigned from the ground, up.  The scale length, bracing, M&T construction, and affordable price are borrowed from the 16 series.  Everything else is new.  New neck, new pickup system.  New look.

The new Aura F1 system gives you 9 mic images instead of 6, and the plugged-in tone is smoother and fatter than previous generations of Aura images.  The neck has a slimmer feel as you climb towards the 12th fret, and the neck carve feels like a skinnier version of Martin's low profile.  It's definitely Martin's fastest neck.

If you're in the market for an acoustic-electric, you MUST consider this new PA series!
