Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 GPCPA5 Grand Performance Acoustic Guitar:

After retiring my Ovation Legend 1717(1986) I got my Taylor 410 from Guitar Center in 1997, because the Ovation is getting too heavy for me. I love the neck of Taylor and it's lighter,but then I switched to Martin D15 Mahogany because it's not too bright and had loud bold projection, the sound of Martin is more balanced and addictive so I got D28 and in 2007 I got D18 all from Musician's Friend.Last year May 2012 we're invited to sing to the Bishop's Mass for our High School Grand Reunion so I got the GPCPA4 from Guitar Center and this model is the most comfortable guitar I ever used and good sweet sound too, so the other day I went to Guitar Center to try the Rosewood version of the GPCPA4,I am ready to buy the GPCPA4 Rosewood but I saw this GPCPA5M Mahogany High Pressured Laminate hanging down the wall, I played it and tried comparing it side by side with the Rosewood GPCPA4 I couldn't believed my ears but I am hearing same good sweet sound but better projection and good intonation too on GPCPA5M mahogany HPL so after asking the salesperson to play both of the guitars while I listened and what he,(the Sales guy)experienced, I end up buying the Martin GPCPA5M Mahogany HPL and save. I guess I love mahogany.My son who is a lead guitarist also played the GPCPA5M Mahogany HPL and he also approved to keep it. Now,don't get me wrong, my intention is to preserved all my solid wood guitars and use this GPCPA5M HPL as alternatives.Because solid wood guitar continue to get sweeter as it ages, only if you take care of it & put it in cases with humidifier and of coarse play it always.I always play all my guitars before buying one. I hope this helped.Thank you.

Just what I expected..and then some!

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 GPCPA5 Grand Performance Acoustic Guitar:

This is a beautiful instrument....I don't typically go for the "natural" color but this is absolutely stunning and it sounds just as good as it looks! I bought it as a "condition 1" used guitar and I can't even tell where it's even been touched...let alone "used." This is the second time I've bought a used item from Musicians Friend and for the second time I am beyond pleased with my purchase!

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 GPCPA5 Grand Performance Acoustic Guitar:

I've been buying stuff from Musician's Friend for a long time while going to USA. Since recently they offer shipping to Europe as well, I tried shipping GPCPA5 to Netherlands which saved my more than 20% of the price than If I had bought it in Netherlands. It was marked as Condition 1, which in my opinion it has nothing less than a new instrument. The package and the guitar were in perfect condition and.

About the guitar itself, It plays very nice and the sound is wonderful. The neck is very comfortable and it allows you to play easily on the top of the fretboard. I was amazed by the sound of the piezo pickup and the whole thing looks very good on the guitar. The body has a natural color and it is not coated, and I actually love how it looks. The price is amazing even though that I had to pay 21% more than the price in US for the tax and the shipping costs. Still cheaper than buying from Netherlands. And Also I got 10% off as I am a regular customer.

      Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series 2015 GPCPA5 Grand Performance Acoustic Guitar:

      I don't know how they do it. This guitar is made from all composite materials except for the top and it sounds incredible. I have done a side by side comparison of this guitar to one costing twice as much, playing through the same amp with the same settings and there's hardly enough difference to tell them apart; in fact, most people probably couldn't. And it's not just about the electronics! This guitar is a pleasure to play and listen to unplugged as well. I am very impressed with the sound and feel of this instrument.
      If I have any complaint at all, it's that the input jack is very hard to keep tightened. I have to tighten it almost every time I play because the cord moves around and loosens it up. A problem as simple as this should really be addressed by Martin.
