      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPC12PA4 Grand Performance 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I never ordered a guitar sight unseen and was a little nervous about it. I had it shipped to my local Guitar Center and everything went smooth. Unpacked it at home and when I opened the case, I was blown away with how perfect it looked. Pulled it out of the case, gave it a once over, grabbed my pick and strummed out an epic sound worth every penny! Martin...need I say more!

      Home and Stage friendly

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPC12PA4 Grand Performance 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I purchesd this instrument to play on stage and find it almost fits perfectly for playing style and electronics. I mean right out of the case the only thing this guitar needs is tuneing and playing...it sounds and looks great. I have been playing a 1978 Takamine F400-S since it was new and have always enjoyed it tremendously. The neck thicknes is not the most friendly and they recommended light gauge silk and steel strings and I have always kept it tuned down 1/2 step so as not to compromise the bridge saddle. I also burnished the frets to make the action a bit more friendly. I also have a Barcus Barry contact mic and a Fishman preamp. The 12 string also has a "Pro" set up from Guitar Center.
