Resonant Tonewoods Project with Clarity

The GPC-11E gets its balanced tone from a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides. Sitka spruce provides strength and elasticity for a wide dynamic range, while sapele produces a focused midrange and sparkling high end. Together, these tonewoods yield a clear, well-rounded sound suitable for any genre.

Performing Artist Neck Plays Fast and Smooth

Martin designed the Performing Artist neck profile to feel familiar in the hand while allowing for extended playing sessions. Its slim, rounded shape gives you unfettered access across the fretboard so you can play at any tempo with comfort and accuracy.

Fishman Electronics Offer Convenience and Control

The Fishman MX-T pickup system captures the GPC-11E's natural tone for a realistic plugged-in sound. Unique to this system is the built-in tuner, which mutes the output signal when engaged so you can tune discreetly on stage. Adjustable controls let you shape your amplified tone to suit the venue.

Premium Gig Bag Provides Road-Ready Protection

A premium soft shell gig bag is included to shield your GPC-11E from the rigors of transport and storage. Padded handles and a durable shell keep the guitar safe on the go, while pockets give you space to organize cables, straps and other accessories.
