OVERVIEW

Accentuated cutaway and modified neck profile with Performance Artist Taper make this natual beauty fun and easy to play.

Introduced at the 2014 Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, the GPC-Aura GT comes equipped with Fishman F1 Aura Plus electronics and consists of an East Indian rosewood body with a satin finish and a polished gloss Sitka spruce top featuring a two-ring pearl rosette. Added features include a certified African blackwood bridge and fingerboard, with hexagon pearl inlays. The nickel ratio tuners with skeleton knobs allow each string to have its own gear ratio. The skeleton button adds a jewel like appearance and lessens the weight of the tuners. Fishman F1 Aura + electronics help you keep your tone in control when plugged in.

Comes with a hardshell case.

Comments about Martin Special Edition GPC-Aura GT Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

After many years and tons of research, I decided to by this Martin. It was the first guitar I've purchased without playing first. However, Martin has always been the premier guitar maker, so I took a chance. The guitar plays beautifully. The action is excellent. However, there is an annoying buzz when the G string is played open. Sadly, I've written many songs with open tuning which has the G as the drone note. This buzz does distract. I can't determine if the string is properly seated with the bridge pin or if there's a low spot in the nut. It is under warranty so I will have it looked at after the holidays.

The fret board is nearly flawless, however I did find two notes (on the high end) that seem to 'die' out when a vibrato is applied. Every other fret sounds and plays beautifully.

The guitar tunes and stays in tune very well. The Fishman F1 Aura Plus is superlative.

      Comments about Martin Special Edition GPC-Aura GT Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is amazing. The feel, playability and tone are outstanding. Overall acoustic sound is big, bright and loud! The Fishman AURA System electronics sound great when you need to plug in. Nice amount of bling! Between the fretboard inlays and the pearl sound hole ring I am stylin'! Tuning pegs are very precise and built-in tuner makes life easy. Highly recommend!
