An acoustic-electric guitar blending sustainable tonewoods and resonant technology for superior acoustic tone.

The Martin GPCE Inception acoustic-electric guitar cleverly combines nature and technology for a unique handcrafted instrument with exceptional resonance and crystal-clear projection. Made for discerning players seeking the ultimate in eco-friendly acoustic tone and sustain, its FSC-certified European spruce top and sonic channels inside the body increase vibration. The GPCE Inception has a striking amber sunburst finish over a three-piece maple back with an eye-catching black walnut wedge, bound with elegant black walnut. Custom appointments like the maple arrow and black walnut fingerboard further enhance the upscale aesthetic. Plug it in and the L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system provides amplified tones with intuitive controls. With its comfortable neck width and taper, the GPCE Inception offers a familiar feel for steel-string players venturing into nylon-string territory.

Sustainable Tonewoods and Sonic Channels Provide Superior Projection and Balance

At the heart of the GPCE Inception's amazing acoustic tone is a deliberate pairing of sustainable tonewoods like FSC-certified European spruce on the top along with back and sides of figured maple. Strategic sonic channels inside the body increase resonance for exceptional volume, liveliness and crystal clear note separation. The tone offers superb balance across the tonal spectrum, with articulate highs, pronounced mid-punch and robust low end. Plugged in, the L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system accurately captures the GPCE Inception's rich acoustic character.

Resonance-Enhancing Scalloped Bracing and Soundholes

To allow its tonewoods to sing freely, the GPCE Inception features forward-thinking skeletonized scalloped bracing. By carving away excess mass, the braces vibrate more efficiently to amplify resonance through both the top and back. Three elegant soundholes also let the guitar breathe with every strum. You can feel the body resonate against you as you play, hearing each note bloom with harmonics.

Striking Amber Sunburst Finish and Custom Appointments

Visually, the GPCE Inception makes a bold statement with its transparent amber sunburst finish, black walnut binding and custom inlays. The figured maple back has an eye-catching black walnut wedge down the center. The fingerboard complexly contrasts the warm, reddish hue of black walnut with maple's lighter color. Arrow position markers and other special touches provide an upscale, custom esthetic. Open-gear tuners with a vintage gold finish complete the look.

Comfortable Feel for Steel-String Players

While nylon-string guitars often feel foreign to steel-string players, the GPCE Inception's neck width and taper lend a familiar vibe. The nut width provides ample room for fingerpicking, while the neck shape fits comfortably in your hand. Upper-fret access is easy with a deep cutaway. Make your entry into the world of nylon-string guitars smooth and inspiring with the GPCE Inception.
