Overview

The Martin Performing Artist Series GPCPA4 Shaded Top Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar is constructed with solid tonewoods. The back and sides are matched from African sapele, similar in appearance and tone to mahogany. Bookmatched Sitka spruce soundboards utilize Martin's Hybrid "A-Frame" scalloped bracing. The Performing Artist Series GPCPA4 Shaded Top Grand Performance guitar features a slim, more parallel taper at the 12th fret, allowing for a more comfortable playing width up the neck. The bridge spacing is also modified to 2-3/16 in. - splitting the difference between Martin's two traditional spacings.

Along with the look, feel, and enhanced performance of Martin's existing Performing Artist Series models, the GPCPA4 has the simplified Fishman F1 Analog electronics system.

Includes case.

Beautiful to look at and to play

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPCPA4 Shaded Top Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I played the natural finish version of this guitar in the store and liked it a lot, but really wanted something that would have a little more flash to it, so I purchased the shaded version online, sight-unseen.

This guitar looks even better in real life than it does in pictures. It was well worth the extra $$ for the shaded finish. You can still see the wood grain, but the glossy top has that sweet reddish hue to it.

As for the sound the guitar is wonderful. It's got a very balanced, mellow tone. It sounds like a vintage guitar with some serious warmth, but still great clarity. You can hear every note in a chord with no one note dominating. The sound level is quite strong, too--this thing projects.

The playability is excellent right out of the box. The action is spot-on and the neck is really comfortable. I'm finding that this neck shape makes it easier for me to play some chords that used to be a rather large stretch for me.

So, overall, I highly recommend this guitar.
