OVERVIEW

Colorful HPL tonewoods that produce a colorful sound as well.

The Martin GPX1AE acoustic-electric guitar combines that world-famous Martin sound with the contemporary playability of an electric guitar. Its unique body design blends a tight waist with a deep body. The end result is a tone that is well-defined, plus a massive amount of power and projection. Its solid Sitka spruce top is braced perfectly to give you a rich, full-bodied tone that is versatile enough for any musical situation. The body is rounded out with a forest-friendly mahogany HPL back and sides to give you an attractive visual look.

As part of the Martin Performing Artist Series, this guitar was crafted to be a “player's dream.” The GPX1AE features a very playable laminate birch neck, with a Performing Artist neck taper. This precision-cut neck has fast FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and a 1-3⁄4 in. nut width, to give you the right amount of spacing between the strings.

Looking for electronics? The Martin GPX1AE is equipped with an onboard Fishman Sonitone soundhole-mounted preamp which features easy-to-use rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole for easy access while you are performing. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a studio-quality sound right out of the box.

This guitar is everything you’ve come to expect from Martin, at a price that just about anyone can afford. Pick one up. You’ll love the sound and playability of this fine instrument.

Case sold separately.

Great guitar - Poor Setup

By Scott

from Asheville, NC

Comments about Martin X Series GPX1AE Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Plays fine, I have no qualms with this particular guitar itself, but more with the service of MusiciansFriend on my particular issue dealing with this guitar. I've never had a problem with them before, but I was disappointed when my brand new item arrived with a very poor setup, the issue specifically involving the intonation. I didn't want to have to pay a luthier right out of the gate to adjust the poor setup on my brand new guitar, so I asked if they could at least send me a complimentary truss rod wrench to fix the problem (they caused) on my own. They refused to do so - treating this issue as if it's not a big deal at all. But I guess I have no problem playing out of tune all of the time right when I receive a brand new instrument - dissonance is always inspiring, and makes for some good new music.
