Overview

The Martin GPCPA5K 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 Koa 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 GPCPA5K features a very playable laminate brown 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 GPCPA5K comes complete with an onboard Fishman Sonitone. 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 GPCPA5K Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I saw this guitar at the Guitar Center in Wilmington, DE and instantly fell in love with it. The feel is incredible and the sound is unmistakably Martin. It is great for strumming, soloing and finger-picking and the fact that it is a forest friendly guitar only adds to its allure.

    Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2016 GPCPA5K Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I used to play classical guitar and now want to try some finger style. I believe this is a good start for a intermediate player to play with. It also enables you to connect electronics to amplify.
