Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPCPA3 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Love the sweet sounds you get on and off the stage with this one. Doesn't have all the fancy inlay but packs all the features that you should care most about. Top quality Aura system takes a bit getting used to but after that learning curve you'll be able to fine tune the tone you are looking for. A must have for any performing musician who also has time to slow down on the couch, not to mention the musicians out there who now have a more thrifty budget.
