Overview

Martin’s Road Series line of guitars features a blend of the legendary Martin tone, with solid-wood construction, and lightning-fast playability. The Martin GPCRSG Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar was designed for the player that is searching for incredible tone, playability, and visual appeal at an affordable price.

Its all solid-wood construction produces a tone that will rival some of the most expensive guitars made today. To start with, Martin selected a solid Sitka spruce top as the basis of the tone engine. Martin selected Sitka spruce because it’s a very expressive tonewood that produces the right amount of tone, volume and dynamics. To augment the crisp tone of the Sitka spruce, the back and sides is fashioned of solid mutenye, a tonewood that adds the perfect amount of character, combining the right amount of warmth and definition to the mids and highs. Unlike laminate or layered woods that are stiff and lack bottom end and resonance, a solid wood instrument has crystal-clear highs, a punchy bottom end, and lots of sustain.

Martin’s GPCRSG Grand Performance features an all polished gloss finish. It not only sounds great, but it looks like a million bucks! It is designed using Martin’s innovative Grand Performance body. The GP body was designed to be a little deeper than your typical 000 or auditorium-shaped body. The added depth gives you an increase in volume, while producing an even tone across the entire musical spectrum. The combination of solid tonewoods and beautiful cosmetic appointments body produces an instrument that is extremely expressive and dynamic. You won’t be overpowered at a jam session when playing this guitar. The GPCRSG Grand Performance's great sound and fast action is perfect for the singer-songwriter, stage performer, session player, and aspiring guitar student.

Playability is a must for many of today’s musical styles and Martin got you covered. The GPCRSG Grand Performance has one of the most comfortable necks on the market. The cutaway body and slim neck profile lets you glide across the fingerboard with ease. You will be able to make a smooth transition from your electric guitar to this acoustic. And, as an added bonus, the GPCRSG Grand Performance is precision setup by one of Martin’s Plek machines.

As one of the last steps in final setup process, Martin uses the Plek machine to give you the ultimate guitar setup. If you were to have a technician Plek one of your guitars, it would cost you anywhere from $250-$400. Martin includes this valued bonus on every Road Series guitar for free. If you’re a fingerstyle player, professional, novice, or singer songwriter, you are going to love the way this guitar sounds and plays.

The Martin GPCRSG Grand Performance comes complete with Fishman Sonitone electronics. This compact, easy-to-use electronics package lets you plug in and play. There’s no need for you to spend hours getting a great guitar sound. Just plug in, and you’re ready to go. For easy access, the volume and tone controls are positioned directly in the soundhole of the guitar. This gives you the ability to make changes to your tone in real time.

This guitar uses Martin long-lasting SP Lifespan Phosphor Bronze Medium Gauge and comes complete with a 12C0061 hardshell acoustic guitar case.

    Comments about Martin GPCRSG Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    My first Martin and I almost didn't buy it. After playing a few Martin and Taylor guitars at Guitar Center I was ready to leave not knowing what I really wanted. At the last moment I saw this guitar on the top rung and grabbed it and when I played it, it just spoke to me. I went home without it but came back 4 hours later and bought it.
    It's made me sound so much better, a great mix of high and lows, balanced and sounds great with or without an amp.
    I have found this guitar to have a much more player friendly neck and the looks are just the icing on top. Love the woods used which brings a sound I've not hear before.

    Love This Guitar!!!

    By John

    from Mishawaka, IN

    Comments about Martin GPCRSG Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The new, (by Martin standards, anyway!), Grand Performance body style, produces a wonderfully balanced and full tonal range, from a deep solid low end, a clean and smooth midrange, and a clear but not overly bright high end. The body is in the jumbo size range with a slightly narrower waist that is comfortable to hold. The neck is a superb new design with a 1-3//4" width at the saddle with a taper that is easy to play and fast to fret.
    I just purchased this guitar and could not be more pleased. The new African hardwood sides and back are produced from Mutenye, a sister species to Ovangkol, so it is beautiful to look at and the tone it produces is warm, well balanced with boat-loads of sustain! Two thumbs up!!!

        Comments about Martin GPCRSG Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I bought this guitar on Fathers Day and it looks and feels great. The neck is smooth and fast and it is easy to fret. The sound is more dull than my 000RS1, which is why I couldn't give it five stars, but from what I have read glossy finish can effect sound more than a satin finish. I am a fingerstyle guitarist so this is perfect for me.
