The 2018 Martin GP-35E Grand Performance Cutaway Acoustic-Electric guitar has been refined to combine some of the most desirable vintage appointments with modern playability. The Grand Performance body design is famous for having a very clean, precise high-end tone, along with a perfectly balanced bass response. The GP body is deeper than the traditional Martin Auditorium (000) for good reason. The deeper body allows the sound a little extra time to build before it jumps out of the soundhole. The result is a well-balanced sound that is crisp and clean with a lot of punch on the low end.
Standard models come with a very fast, playable solid neck; featuring a modified low-oval shape, with High Performance neck taper and 1-3⁄4” nut. The combination of the "vintage" tone and modern playability creates an instrument that you won’t want to put down.
2018 Cosmetic Upgrades
Martin has refined their 2018 Standard lineup to include some of the most desirable vintage appointments. The 2018 lineup features, aging toner, antique white binding, vintage-style fingerboard inlays, vintage open-gear tuners and vintage-era bracing for that unique “Golden Era” tone.
The GP-35E comes with a factory-installed Fishman Aura VT Enhanced pickup. This revolutionary pickup amplifies the guitar exactly as you hear it. No color or distortion is added into the sound. It’s like putting a fine vintage microphone in front of the guitar. Every note will be faithfully and accurately transmitted to your mixing board or amplifier.
The Enhanced feature is composed of an under-the-saddle transducer that amplifies the “transverse waves” of the sound as it passes through your guitar. In the past, you would not hear what is going on with the sound inside of the guitar. Now, you can blend the pickup with the acoustic sound of the body for addition color and depth. And if you like to rhythmically tap the top of the guitar as you play, the Enhanced pickup accurately recreates that sound as well. Just plug in, and you have a studio-quality sound without all the time-consuming work to EQ your sound.
