Martin's GPC Special 16 Style acoustic-electric, now with Fishman electronics.

The Martin GPC Special16 Series Grand Performance cutaway acoustic-electric guitar provides an ideal combination of acoustic excellence and plugged-in performance. Its solid spruce top paired with rosewood back and sides produces a balanced tone with deep, rich overtones. The cutaway body gives players easy access to higher frets, while the high-performance neck taper ensures comfortable playability across the fretboard.

Fishman MX-T Pickup System Delivers Accurate Amplified Tone

The built-in Fishman MX-T pickup system picks up the GPC-16E's acoustic resonances and translates them into an amplified signal with stunning accuracy. Its controls allow you to shape your tone to suit any musical situation, from cutting through the mix in a live band to meticulously crafting recordings in the studio. With the MX-T, your amplified tone will sound just as full, balanced and nuanced as the GPC-16E's acoustic voice.

Solid Spruce Top and Rosewood Back/Sides Provide Premium Tonewoods

The GPC-16E 16 Series Special features a solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides, using premium tonewoods renowned for their acoustic excellence. The spruce top delivers a balanced tone with crisp highs and tight lows, while the rosewood body produces rich overtones and a deep, resonant bass. Together, these woods create an acoustic voice that is versatile, well-rounded and suited to a variety of musical styles.

Thoughtful Details Provide Playability and Versatility

Several design elements make the GPC-16E comfortable and versatile. Its cutaway body provides easy access to higher frets, expanding your range for leads and solos. The high-performance neck taper ensures a fast, comfortable feel along the fretboard. Chrome tuners keep your strings in tune through long practice or performance sessions. An included gig bag provides stylish, durable protection for transporting and storing your GPC-16E.
