The BCPA4 features a sapele back and sides with a solid spruce top, plus it's J-style cutaway body with Fishman F1 Analog Electronics onboard tuner to give you that deep, rich tone either plugged in or unplugged. Upright and electric tone balanced perfectly together in one instrument.

The Fishman F1 Analog onboard preamp technology is distinctive and easy to use, and is delivered in an intuitive menu driven interface that is very versatile with two low profile control buttons and a single large, bright LED display in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing.
