A super-affordable all-solid wood acoustic-electric built for performance.

The Martin GPC-11E Road Series acoustic-electric guitar delivers the iconic Martin tone and playability you know and love in a stage- and studio-ready package. With the Fishman MX-T electronics system, the GPC-11E produces a balanced, natural amplified sound. The guitar's solid sapele back and sides offer deep, rich warmth to complement the crisp articulation and projection from the solid Sitka spruce top. Together, these tonewoods provide the balanced acoustic resonance Martin guitars are revered for. The Performing Artist neck has a comfortable profile and 16" radius for effortless chording and soloing across the fingerboard. The onboard Fishman tuner allows on-the-fly tuning without needing an external tuner, muting the output so you can tune quietly between songs. With its great looks, comfortable feel and flexible amplified performance, the Martin GPC-11E Road Series acoustic-electric guitar is ready to hit the stage or studio with you.

With Natural and Balanced Amplified Tone from Fishman MX-T Electronics

The Fishman MX-T electronics system is designed to reproduce the GPC-11E's inherent acoustic tone with clarity and balance when plugged in. The undersaddle transducer captures the guitar's natural resonance, while the soundhole-mounted condenser mic picks up the true acoustic character. Blend the two sound sources to achieve your ideal amplified Martin tone. The preamp provides onboard tone shaping with bass and midrange EQ so you can tweak your amplified sound on the fly. The tuner displays in the soundhole for quick visual reference and mutes the output so you can tune silently on stage. With the Fishman MX-T system, the Martin GPC-11E produces an authentic acoustic-electric sound you'll love through an amplifier or PA.

With a Comfortable Neck Profile and Radius for Effortless Playing

Designed for optimal playability, the GPC-11E neck has a Performing Artist profile that feels smooth and comfortable in your hand. Its 16" fingerboard radius facilitates effortless chording and soloing with smooth note bending. The profile is ideal for performance, providing a tactile experience that inspires you to play your best. Low action from the Plek setup enhances the playing feel even more. The neck is crafted from durable select hardwood to give you years of comfortable performance. From the first strum, you'll appreciate the GPC-11E neck that feels made for your hand.

With Sapele Back and Sides Providing Rich Warmth

The GPC-11E back and sides are constructed from solid sapele, a tonewood prized for its deep, rich warmth. The sapele's dense properties add volume and enhance the midrange, bringing out lush, resonant tones. Combined with the solid spruce top, the sapele produces balanced tone and impressive projection ideal for live performances. The solid wood construction provides organic acoustic resonance you can feel through the mahogany neck and body. Whether unplugged or amplified, the sapele back and sides help the GPC-11E produce full, balanced sound with the gorgeous midrange Martin guitars are known for.

With a Spruce Top Offering Crisp Articulation and Projection

The GPC-11E's solid Sitka spruce top offers the crisp high-end and robust projection that make Martin guitars shine. The tightly grained spruce provides crisp note articulation with complex overtones. Its lightweight stiffness enables the top to freely vibrate, projecting your tone outward with clarity and balance. In combination with the sapele back and sides, the spruce top gives the GPC-11E a versatile acoustic voice that cuts through the mix. When amplified, the spruce-sapele pairing provides organic resonance and balanced EQ response. Let the GPC-11E spruce top help your tone shine whether practicing alone or performing live.
