A special dreadnought model fitted with deluxe electronics for stunning acoustic-electric tone no matter the circumstances. The Martin DC-Aura Cutaway has a solid Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck with modified low oval shape, and special pearl hexagon outline inlays on the ebony fretboard and bridge. Other special Martin touches include a mother-of-pearl logo, ebony bridge and end pins with abalone dots, and gold tuners with ebony buttons. This Martin DC-Aura Cutaway special edition of the Fishman Aura Acoustic Imaging Blender provides onboard access to studio-quality sounds live. The Aura does not change your guitar tone, but accentuates it to project the true sound of the guitar as captured by high-end condenser microphones in a premium studio. 6 customized Sound Images, derived from actual studio recordings of the DC can be blended with the resonant output of the Martin Gold+Plus Natural pickup signal for previously unattainable hi-fidelity reproduction of the world-renowned Martin acoustic tone. Other electronic features include a fully programmable digital EQ, feedback control, and a chromatic tuner.
The guitar is preowned and in very good condition. It recently had a neck reset and fret leveling done by Third Coast Guitars in Chicago as well as having the top crack that is seen in the photos repaired/reinforced.
