Martin GPC-X2E Ziricote Back and Sides

Turn Heads With Striking Ziricote HPL Back and Sides

The GPCX2E Ziricote makes a visual impact with its exotic ziricote-patterned HPL back and sides. The eye-catching woodgrain pattern looks stunning under stage lights. Beyond aesthetics, the durable HPL construction makes the guitar highly resistant to weather and environmental changes so you can play worry-free. The HPL still resonates with woody warmth like solid wood, so you don't sacrifice any tonal nuance. The GPCX2E Ziricote blends striking looks and road-ready toughness.

Martin GPC-X2E Ziricote Top

Experience Nuanced Tone With a Solid Sapele Top

With its focused midrange and shimmering overtones, the hand-rubbed solid sapele top adds dimension to your tone. Compared to spruce, sapele has a slightly warmer, more rounded sound with pronounced fundamentals. Strumming rings out with complexity as the sapele top reveals nuanced harmonic details. Whether you dig into the strings or pick gently, the sapele top gives the GPCX2E Ziricote a versatile, balanced acoustic voice.

Martin GPC-X2E Ziricote Neck

Play for Hours With a Slim-Taper Neck

Designed for playing comfort, the slim-taper neck has a satin-finished select hardwood fingerboard with a slimmer 1-3/4" nut width and flattened 16" fingerboard radius that will feel familiar to electric players. The slim profile makes chording and soloing along the 20-fret fingerboard smooth and enjoyable. Low-profile frets further enhance playability for silky string bending and vibrato. The ergonomic neck design lets your hands glide effortlessly up and down the fingerboard.
