OVERVIEW

Ready to perform with Fishman electronics and a warm blend of Sitka top and East Indian rosewood body with a cutaway design.

The Standard Series GPC-28E Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides, black ebony fingerboard and bridge, and a complementing black pickguard. This combination of features and Fishman's Aura VT Enhance electronics, which introduces a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar, make this the guitar that will simply get better with time.


Includes ply hardshell case.

Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification system
The Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification system is like nothing you have ever heard before. Powered by a revolutionary new Technology, the Fishman Aura VT Enhanced offers the most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging available to date.

Martin has been making the finest acoustic guitars for 183 years. Each instrument goes through 100’s of hand-crafted step to produce an instrument that is not only prized for its sound and tone, but cherished by many of the most noted professional musicians and collectors in the world. It was the goal of Martin’s CEO and Chairman, Chris Martin IV, to have Fishman create a system that amplified the sound of a Martin guitar, exactly as it is being played. The R&D team was tasked to create a system that preserved the unique and pristine acoustic tone of each instrument. Imagine plugging your acoustic guitar in and hearing your performance amplified, exactly as you hear it played live. 

What’s under the top?
Both the Aura VT Enhance with Acoustic Imaging and the Matrix VT Enhance feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the tone of the guitar.

A Sound That Raises the Standard of Excellence
The Aura VT Enhanced and Matrix VT Enhanced are unobtrusive, with no controls or holes cut into the side of the guitar. The easy-to-use Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls are mounted inside the soundhole for convenient access during performance. The resulting sound quality meets the Martin standard of excellence with an unmatched sound and responsiveness to touch and playing.

    Comments about Martin Standard Series GPC-28E Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    MF stupid deal of the day got into my head. I thought about it all day, then bought it with 28 minutes left on the deal. What a great price! Best move I've made in awhile - I love my GPC-28E. My only concern was how I was going to convince my wife that I absolutely needed another guitar. I pulled it off and now have three Martins and the GPC-28E can easily hold it's ground with the other two. Sounds awesome through my Marshall AS100D. The Fishman pickup quit after about a month but MF sent me a new Martin with no questions and an apology. No apology necessary - you handled it and made a loyal customer out of me. BIG shout out to Derek in customer service - very cool to work with. Thanks again - looking forward to the next great Stupid Deal of the Day! Hint, hint, hint: Taylor 614ce or Nashville Tele would be real kewl....then I'll have to convince my wife (again) that I absolutely need another guitar.............wish me luck.

          Got this beauty from the Stupid Deal of the Day, but there was nothing stupid about this deal. Over $1100 off of this exceptional guitar, are you kidding me! Thanks MF. I believe this was a middle 2017 build, but it was in tune right out of the box. Absolutely flawless, sounds great acoustic and even better plugged into my Marshall AS50-D. I have had dozens of guitars over the past 55 years; Gibson, Martin, Fender, Rick, etc, but this is my favorite. Happy, happy, happy!
