The GPC-18E Grand Performance, acoustic-electric cutaway model has been finely crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top, genuine mahogany back and sides and solid black ebony fingerboard and bridge. A sleek modified low oval neck with a Performing Artist taper give you greater ease of play up and down the fingerboard. Tortoise color binding and matching pickguard embellish this model. The all-new Fishman Aura VT Enhance electronics make this guitar the complete package for players of all levels. With Aura imaging specifically made for each guitar model, you can plug in and enhance the sound you fell in love with in the first place. Includes hardshell case.

Fishman Aura VT Enhance
Martin exclusively debuts a new pickup and preamp, the Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification by Fishman, which offers the most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging, to preserve the unique and pristine acoustic tone of each instrument with studio microphone quality. In addition, the new streamlined Matrix VT Enhance will be offered on select models.

Both the Aura VT Enhance with Acoustic Imaging and the Matrix VT Enhance feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar.

With no control holes cut into the side of your guitar, Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance is discreet and simple to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls inside the sound hole and at your fingertips.

The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with more responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch.
