Nazareth, PA – March 16, 2012 – C. F. Martin & Co. (www.martinguitar.com) is bringing some of their outstanding new instruments to the international clientele at the Musikmesse Frankfurt from March 21-24. The  iconic acoustic guitar-maker will unveil three innovative guitars that  will enhance the brand’s already premiere line of instruments.
Attendees visiting the Martin Guitar booth (3.1 F81) will be  able to have the chance to preview the new releases that feature an expansion of the highly successful Performing Artist Series  instruments.  The models being showcased will include:

DCPA4 Rosewood, GPCPA4 Rosewood, OMCPA4 Rosewood: With  the phenomenal success of Martin's Performing Artist Series guitars  launched in January 2010, Martin now introduces brand new versions of these  special instruments – the PA4 rosewood models – adding even more tonal  color and variety to the PA Series. Three cutaway models are included in  the series: Dreadnought (DCPA4 Rosewood), Grand Performance (GPCPA4 Rosewood), and Orchestra Model (OMCPA4 Rosewood).  Like their esteemed Sapele and Siris PA4 predecessors, PA4 rosewood  models are constructed with solid tonewoods. The back and sides are  matched East Indian rosewood, known for its excellent bass response, clear midrange and treble. Book matched 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. Add in  Fishman’s simplified F1 Analog electronics array and you have a serious  stage and studio instrument with great tone at an affordable price. Equipped with Martin SP Lifespan Acoustic Guitar  Strings. Hardshell case included. (MSRP $1849.00)

Also on display at Musikmesse will be the company’s expanding and successful  line of Martin SP® LIFESPAN™ acoustic strings. This will include the new 12 String, Baritone and two Extra  Light offerings that were launched this fall.  Introduced in the fall of  2010, Martin SP LIFESPAN is the fastest growing product in the acoustic  string market.  The SP core wire is engineered to hold tunings better than other brands and resist breaking, and with  rich full tone and responsive attack, SP strings are perfect for  everywhere from studio to stage.  Treated with Cleartone® proprietary  technology, Martin SP LIFESPAN string sets bring players the longest possible string life without sacrificing the legendary tone  or natural feel for which Martin Strings have become known.
