What are the best acoustic electric guitar under 2000 dollars
In the construction of an acoustic instrument, the quality of the wood that is chosen plays a fundamental role. Different types of wood are used for the body, the neck and the fretboard. Each has its own physical characteristics, timbres, aesthetics, and the costs can naturally vary a lot depending on the quality of each piece.
It is good to clarify that, having to deal with characteristics such as the type of veining (wide, fine, regular, irregular), the seasoning, the guitar bracing, the type of wood will have a reduced weight or non-preponderant in the economy overall sound of the acoustic instrument.
In collaboration with Fishman, Martin Performing Artist GPCPA4 combines high-quality craftsmanship with modern amplification priced around $1500. This is one of the most convenient guitars of the Performing Artist series where instead of mahogany the African sapele was used for the back and sides of the guitar.
The Fishman F1 electronics is a simplified version of the PA3. One of the best features of the Performing Artist models is the brand new thin neck. Interestingly, the pitch spacing has been changed to 55.6 mm; the difference with the D-18 and MAC-28 models is slight but noticeable. The battery life of the analogical F1 is 200 hours. A key feature of the design of the GPCPA4 is its depth, which increases the capacity of the sound chamber by offering greater volume and projection.
