Overview

The Martin GPCPA5 acoustic-electric guitar combines that world famous Martin sound with the contemporary playability of an electric guitar. Its unique body design blends a tight waist with a deep body. The end result is a tone that is well defined, plus a massive amount of power and projection. Its solid Sitka spruce top is braced perfectly to give you a rich, full-bodied tone that is versatile enough for any musical situation. The body is rounded out with a forest-friendly mahogany HPL back and sides to give you an attractive visual look.


As part of the Martin Performing Artist Series, this guitar was crafted to be a “player's dream.” The GPCPA5 features a very playable laminate birch neck, with a Performing Artist neck taper. This precision-cut neck has fast FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and a 1-3⁄4” nut width, to give you the right amount of spacing between the strings.

Looking for electronics, the Martin GPCPA5 comes complete with an onboard Fishman A1 Analog electronics. This soundhole-mounted-preamp features easy-to-use rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole for easy access while you are performing. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a studio-quality sound right out of the box.

This guitar is everything you’ve come to expect from Martin, at a price that just about anyone can afford. Pick one up. You’ll love the sound and playability of this fine instrument!

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2016 GPCPA5 Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar really called out to me. The feel and full sound were right for me.
Unfortunately, after having this guitar for only 2 weeks, the back started separating from the side.
Probably a poor glue job.

This poor quality craftsmanship and quality control has really bummed me out. This was my first Martin and I expected so much more. The guitar sounded incredible, but I cannot keep a guitar that couldn't literally stay together.

I'd like to replace it with the same model, but can't take that risk.
Since I only had the guitar for a few weeks, (less than 45 days), I was able to return it to Guitar Center for a full refund.
I can only imagine my frustration had this occurred outside that time frame.
