Pros

As you would expect, the vast majority of customer reviews are extremely positive whether they are talking about the sound, look or quality. One thing that stood out in reviews was the number people who praised the level of sustain it produces. There were even a few people who compared it favorably to the more expensive Martin D-28. Both the acoustic and plugged in tone were repeatedly complimented.

Cons

There were no consistently reported negatives although there was one person who wrote at length complaining about the high price of this guitar and Martin guitars in general.

Overall

Based on reviews the DCPA4 Rosewood guitar excels at both live performance and recording.
