Martin's Grand Performance Model with Hawaiian koa-pattern HPL for great clarity and projection.

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 Sitka spruce, in a 5/16 in. 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 in. scale, 1-3/4 in. nut width, and 16 in. 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 sound hole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the sound hole, 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. Order this affordable koa beauty today.
