Home and Stage friendly

By Richard Smith

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPC12PA4 Grand Performance 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I purchesd this instrument to play on stage and find it almost fits perfectly for playing style and electronics. I mean right out of the case the only thing this guitar needs is tuneing and playing...it sounds and looks great. I have been playing a 1978 Takamine F400-S since it was new and have always enjoyed it tremendously. The neck thicknes is not the most friendly and they recommended light gauge silk and steel strings and I have always kept it tuned down 1/2 step so as not to compromise the bridge saddle. I also burnished the frets to make the action a bit more friendly. I also have a Barcus Barry contact mic and a Fishman preamp. The 12 string also has a "Pro" set up from Guitar Center.

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPC12PA4 Grand Performance 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I never ordered a guitar sight unseen and was a little nervous about it. I had it shipped to my local Guitar Center and everything went smooth. Unpacked it at home and when I opened the case, I was blown away with how perfect it looked. Pulled it out of the case, gave it a once over, grabbed my pick and strummed out an epic sound worth every penny! Martin...need I say more!

        Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPC12PA4 Grand Performance 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This purchase was a step up from my other 12 string. I was looking for a 12 string which had a richer, deeper sound. This guitar has answered that call perfectly. It is very comfortable to play with a wonderful feel to the neck. Although the neck certainly feels different from my Taylor, it does not cause "hand fatigue" as some other thicker necks do. Electronics are simple and effective.... so no complaints there. The included case is a good basic case. So in a nutshell, very happy with this purchase.
