Martin

Description

This special 6-string Martin GPCX Series Grand Performance acoustic-electric guitar was crafted to produce a powerful, rich sound that is perfect for singer-songwriters, as well as professional touring and studio musicians.

The top, back and sides are constructed using Martin’s famous FSC Certified HPL with a koa pattern. For added tone and volume, the top is articulately braced with spruce, in a 5/16" scalloped X-bracing pattern. The special X Series GPCX Grand Performance acoustic-electric guitar has a powerful, rich tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar.

The mortise-and-tenon neck joint ensures solid construction of the guitar, with optimal resonant tone, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics. The Martin guitar's laminate birch neck is a multi-layered wood creation, using bonding layers of wood under extremely high pressure. The material is then carved and finished in a conventional manner. The end result is a very strong neck that provides definition and articulate sustain from note to note.

The high-performance neck shape (25.4" scale, 1-3/4" nut width and 16" radius) provides comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

This special X Series GPCX Grand Performance acoustic-electric guitar is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic–Lifespan 2.0 light gauge strings, and comes equipped with Fishman MX electronics. The Fishman MX features a soundhole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole, so all you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a great acoustic guitar sound, right out of the box.

Includes gig bag.
