Overview

The Martin Custom GPC-15M acoustic-electric delivers a surprising amount of tone and attitude to your musical performance. Its all-mahogany body generates a pleasing warmth, while at the same time delivering a well-defined, complex midrange and high-end presence. The use of sipo mahogany has been favored by musicians for its rich bottom end and controlled sustain. And when you play this guitar, you will know why mahogany has been the go-to sound for many professional touring and studio musicians.

Grand Performance Body Shape
The Martin Grand Performance Body Shape is a little deeper than your typical 000 or Auditorium body shape. The extra depth gives you added volume, while producing a balanced tone across the entire musical spectrum. The result is a tone that is deeper, fuller, and louder than the traditional 000 shape.

Playability
Playability is a must for many of today’s demanding musical styles and Martin has got you covered. The Custom GPC15M features a solid mahogany Modified Low Oval Neck with High Performance Taper for a fast-playing neck that is both comfortable and easy to play. And as a bonus, each guitar receives a computerize PLEK setup for the perfect custom action of each instrument. If you’re a fingerstyle player, singer songwriter, professional, or weekend hobbyist, you are going to love the way this guitar sounds and feels.

Electronics
The Custom GPC15M come complete with a Fishman F1 Aura pickup system with 3-band EQ and tuner to accurately represent the guitar's naturally great tones when you plug in. This easy-to-use preamp is easy-to-use and perfect for just about any musical application.

Comments about Martin Custom GPC15M Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Let's get the bad out of the way, first. I got this from the GC store. There was no battery included for the audio system. The guitar had not been set up, at all, and was basically unplayable. Folks--Martin expects their Dealers to set up the guitar for the buyer--they don't expect the buyer to set it up themselves. My faith in my ability to rectify this situation is the only reason I proceeded with the deal. Why would I do this? Well, I love Martin guitars. I wanted an all HOG instrument, and while the traditional 000-15 models are pretty nice, this one had the GPCPA body style with the PA neck, AND the Aura system, which is nice for amplify purposes, PLUS it had a cutaway, which is nice if you play up the neck. I was looking for the 000-15e retro model, but they didn't have one in the store, and although generally I prefer short scale guitars, the neck on this one is nice enough that I don't notice it much.
Inside the sound hole, the text indicates Martin Custom. You won't find this model with these features listed in the Martin catalog. It is a set of custom features you just can't find anywhere else. At this price point, it's a value that cannot be beat. Made in the USA. The USA, folks. After setting the thing up, it's a Joy to play. I have 2 other Martins and a Taylor, so this isn't my first axe. I've been learning to play since 1964, and I am making a little progress. I've been at it seems like a long time, now.
