Overview

The Martin custom GPCPA5 rosewood 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 forest-friendly rosewood HPL back and sides to give you an attractive visual look.

The custom GPCPA5 rosewood features a very playable laminate birch neck, with a Performing Artist neck taper. This precision-cut neck has a fast FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and a 1-3⁄4” nut width, to give you the right amount of spacing between the strings. This guitar was crafted to be a "players dream," to give you easy access across the entire fingerboard.

Looking for electronics? The Martin custom GPCPA5 rosewood comes complete with an onboard Fishman Sonitone preamp. 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.

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

        This guitar is nice. I went in trying out guitars because it's what I do! I looked at the price and thought wow nice sound and low enough in cost to tour with. I am currently experimenting with it on a recording and like it a lot. I am messing w recording on a AKG 414 with a tube pre and direct plugging of the Fishman F1 into a tube pre and I am liking it. I think the Fishman F1 pickup produces a good sound for recording live which is one thing we do a lot of for videos and such. Well enough writing about it. Now go try one out!

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

            I had 3 guitars to choose from Taylor 1 Series, Breedlove Concert and Martin GPCPA5. In the end I wound up with Martin because of the bottom end boom it had over the other two guitars. The Taylor was too bright, Breedlove was awesome but a bit too dark (Mahogany) where as this guitar checked all my boxes.
