    Maple Body Martin

    By SEAN

    from Biloxi, MS

    Comments about Martin Custom Performing Artist GPCPA1 Birdseye Maple Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have always wondered how amazing a maple Martin would sound. Since maple Martins are few and far between when I saw this guitar online I traveled nearly 200 miles to quench my curiosity. It has the brightness you would expect from a maple and the growl of a Martin. All of that without a jumbo body style. It is a very comfortable play, great feel on the neck and the body size is not too big or too small. It sounds great plugged in but the electronics will take some getting used to with all with options the pick-up system offers. The sales team at the Jackson, MS Guitar Center was excellent!
