The Martin Grand Performer GPCPA1 Plus acoustic-electric cutaway guitar has solid East Indian rosewood back and sides and is topped with solid Sitka spruce. The rosewood naturally resonates bass, while the Sitka spruce has a clear and powerful tone. The Fishman F1 Aura + electronics amplify the rosewood-spruce combination of the Grand Performer eloquently. The two-ring pearl rosette, arrows and squares inlay, gloss finish and pickguard gracefully compliment the deeply contrasting colors of the rosewood and spruce. Includes case.

Beautiful and sounds like a dream

By Alan Dyer

from Ma

I tried at least 15 - 20 acoustic/electrics from every brand, this is the best of them all. I know its all opinion but this guitar to me is exactly what I am looking for. Plays easy, full rich tone, and looks amazing. The wood resonates perfectly . Some acoustic guitars sound tinny (treble) or too bassy, this is the perfect combination of the two. Built in tuner works great and it also bypasses the pickup when plugged in. Because there is nothing more annoying than the tuning song lol Just like anything it has a downside. The tone adjustment knob does not have a min and max it just continues to rotate when turning. This makes it very hard to know exactly where you are in the adjustment range.

Beautiful work of Art


from Findlay, OH

I had played this guitar at my local Guitar Center store and fell in love with the guitar. They always say that when you pick up the right guitar for you, you will just know. Well, that was true for me. It was comfortable, beautiful and put out the best sound of all of the guitars I had tried out. It was pretty pricy, and I am a very cautious person so I didn't buy it right away. After being drawn back to this particular guitar every time I visited the store over the past year, I just couldn't shake the love affair I had with this guitar. I purchased it and had it shipped to me and there begins our story together, lol. It comes with a brown hard case that has an alligator skin finish. The guitar fits snuggly inside the case. With a solid spruce top and rosewood sides, back, neck and fretboard it plays beautifully. It has a full body sound when strummed. A perfect balance, not too pitchy and not too much base, just right. The only thing that I had to have changed on the guitar was the strings. Martin uses their own strings and I found them to have kind of a sticky feel to them so it made it hard for me to move up and down the fret board while playing. So the only thing I would suggest when buying this guitar, would be to maybe purchase some strings that you like. And if you do not already play with 13 gauge strings, you will have to have the guitar set up for you to change to a lighter gauge as well. This guitar also comes with a DVD to show you how to use the Fishman F1+ for when you want to plug into an amp. Not that you need it, the guitar puts out a very powerful crisp, clear sound all on it's own no matter what style of music you play. There just isn't enough I can say about this guitar, it far exceeded my expectations. If I could give it 10 stars I would. Great job Martin for putting out such a quality guitar!!

What a Guitar !


from Margate, NJ

I ordered this guitar after I visited my local Guitar Center and found they didn't carry the higher end Martin's. I ordered this guitar, having it shipped to the store. I returned to check it out and when I opened the beautiful hard case, a shinny new Martin was waiting to be played. When I played a few chords, I put it back in the case and took it home. What a beautiful sound. The Fishman Pick Up sounds great with plenty of options. This explains why the professional musicians we have grown up with all play Martin Guitars. This will be with me for a very, very long time. Worth every penny.
