OVERVIEW

Taking the 000-15 into the modern era with more playable body shape and Fishman electronics.

The Martin Custom GPC-15M acoustic-electric delivers a surprising amount of tone and attitude to your musical performance. Its all-mahogany body generates a pleasing warmth, while at the same time delivering a well-defined, complex midrange and high-end presence. The use of sipo mahogany has been favored by musicians for its rich bottom end and controlled sustain. And when you play this guitar, you will know why mahogany has been the go-to sound for many professional touring and studio musicians.

Grand Performance Body Shape
The Martin Grand Performance Body Shape is a little deeper than your typical 000 or Auditorium body shape. The extra depth gives you added volume, while producing a balanced tone across the entire musical spectrum. The result is a tone that is deeper, fuller, and louder than the traditional 000 shape.

Playability
Playability is a must for many of today’s demanding musical styles and Martin has got you covered. The Custom GPC15M features a solid mahogany Modified Low Oval Neck with High Performance Taper for a fast-playing neck that is both comfortable and easy to play. And as a bonus, each guitar receives a computerize PLEK setup for the perfect custom action of each instrument. If you’re a fingerstyle player, singer songwriter, professional, or weekend hobbyist, you are going to love the way this guitar sounds and feels.

Electronics
The Custom GPC15M come complete with a Fishman F1 Aura pickup system with 3-band EQ and tuner to accurately represent the guitar's naturally great tones when you plug in. This easy-to-use preamp is easy-to-use and perfect for just about any musical application.

      Comments about Martin Custom GPC15M Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I wanted an all Hog Martin and was looking for a 00015e retro when I stumbled across this thing in the store. The PA neck profile is very fast, nice satin finish. Would have preferred an ebony fretboard, but the Indian rosewood matched the palette nicely. The modern features of the grover tuners, the cutaway, and the Aura audio system make this a pretty versatile, modern instrument. These GPCPA shapes remind me more of a Lowden than Martin, but it's a comfortable size. Would have preferred a shorter scale than the standard 25.4, but I can live with it. It has a very sweet, balanced tone. This is one of those Martin 'custom' specials that only the big dealers can negotiate, you cannot find this model listed in their off the rack series. I passed it by looking at stuff online, but in the store it caught my eye, and after taking it down and checking it out, I realized it was a sort of hidden gem. Not a well known model, but a great value for the price. Workmansip is impeccable, but the factory setup was set to extremes. The action was much higher than I usually expect from a Martin, and the saddle is going to have to be taken down, considerably, before the sweet spot is located. I realize this is sort of a Martin philosophy--let the user set it up the way they like it, but really, this was pretty extreme. I know some players have expressed some concern about the shift away from Honduran Mahogany towards African timbers, but according to the specialists, Sipo/Utile is the African wood that is the most like Honduran Mahogany, and you would never be able to tell by looking or listening that it is anything else.
