A bold black acoustic-electric with easy playability.

The Martin GPCX1E X Series Grand Performance acoustic-electric guitar makes playing smooth and comfortable while looking sleek in an all-black design. With over 1,000 pieces of satin black high-pressure laminate (HPL) making up its top, back and sides, the GPCX1E is built to withstand the rigors of stage use night after night. Martin refined the neck shape and fingerboard for effortless playability, and the modern belly bridge provides a natural feel. Plug in to hear your tone amplified with the Martin E-1 electronics, featuring easy-access volume, tone and phase controls, plus a built-in chromatic tuner. The lightweight GPCX1E lets your music take center stage.

Comfortable Playability With a Modern Neck and Bridge

The GPCX1E's neck features Martin's Performing Artist profile that feels smooth and fast in your hands. Coupled with the belly bridge redesigned for enhanced comfort, you can play chords and lead lines with ease. The fingerboard is engineered with a gently beveled edge and refined string spacing for fatigue-free practice and performing. The slim taper neck with a smooth satin finish lets your fingers glide up and down the maple fingerboard to reach every note with accuracy and precision.

Distinctive Satin Black HPL Body Construction

Pieced together using over 1,000 sheets of high-pressure laminate (HPL), the GPCX1E's top, back and sides have a sleek black finish. HPL is incredibly strong and resistant to weather changes, keeping your guitar looking pristine gig after gig. The deep cutaway grants comfortable access to the highest registers. Weighing only five pounds, the GPCX1E is easy to transport and comfortable to wear on stage. The Grand Performance body produces a balanced tone with rich lows and singing highs.

Martin E-1 Electronics and Onboard Tuner

The Martin E-1 electronics accurately reproduce the GPCX1E's natural acoustic tone when plugged in. Simple volume, tone and phase controls let you shape your amplified sound, while the chromatic tuner makes on-the-fly tuning adjustments easy. Just plug in and you're ready to impress crowds with your amplified acoustic guitar tone.

Lightweight Black Guitar Case Included

The Martin GPCX1E comes with a lightweight black hardshell case to protect your guitar during transport and storage. The plush interior keeps your instrument safe from bumps and scrapes. Durable locking latches and a padded handle make carrying secure and comfortable. Keep your guitar safe in its case when not performing or practicing.
