Great for the stage, good for the environment.

The GPCPA4 Sapele acoustic-electric cutaway guitar adds balance and sparkle to the Grand Performance cutaway body shape. Constructed with solid FSC Certified sapele back and sides and a solid FSC Certified Recycled Sitka spruce top finished in a polished gloss. This certification ensures that the wood used to make the guitar is harvested responsibly with very little effect on the environment. Features Fishman electronics with striking aesthetics, player comfort and versatility combined for solo, stage or studio performance. True plug in, tune up and play system provides an amazing mix of simplicity and functionality.

Fishman F1 Analog
For the cleanest noise-free sound, turn the Volume knob as high as possible without causing your amp or mixer to distort.

This innovative one-knob tone control lets you choose between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (fully counter-clockwise) on up to a "mid- scooped" tone with emphasized treble & bass and reduced midrange.

Use the Phase control to improve bass response at low volume and suppress feedback at high volume. To adjust, press and release the Tone knob several times and leave it in the position most pleasing to your ear.

Press+hold Volume 2 seconds to turn tuner on. Press Volume once to turn it off. This digital chromatic tuner accommodates all tunings and mutes the output when engaged .It can be activated without an instrument cable connected, in which case it will turn itself off after 30 seconds of inactivity. Includes case.

  • Grand Performance 14 fret size
  • Solid FSC certified recycled Sitka spruce top

      Comments about Martin GPCPA4 Sapele Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Beautiful guitar, some marks in finish done while sanding at factory and documentation for electronics is lacking to be nice. I have a Gibson Dove and Taylor 654-CE but the Martin is still the best guitar by far that I own. Love the feel and sound of the guitar and had many compliments at church on the sound through the sound board.

        Comments about Martin GPCPA4 Sapele Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Plays and sounds really good out of the box. Paid x-tra for the fishman aura electronics and hard to say if it was worth it. It does sound and records excelent with no added eq or effects. I really really like how simple the controls work, knobs are SO much easier to use than small sliders. Tuner works great, battery easy to change, all in all I am very pleased after much research and comparing to equal value accoustic/elecs and really laboring over this black Friday purchase.
