Martin Performing Artist Series - GPC13E
The Martin GPC13E features a Grand Performance size body, allowing for a well balanced, versatile tone to suit most styles of acoustic playing.
The body is made up of a familiar Sitka Spruce top, providing a bright chime to the overall tone, however Martin takes a different approach with this model by appointing Mutenye for the back and sides, complementing the Spruce perfectly with a big bassy tone and articulate mid/treble response. The distinctive grain pattern and lush caramel hue of the Mutenye contrasts the bright and bold Spruce top for a delightful looking instrument. This aesthetic is further enhanced by detailing with a mother of pearl pattern fretboard, white binding and a multi-strip rosette with mother of pearl inlay.
The GPC13E is appointed with a selected hardwood neck topped with an FSC certified Richlite fingerboard to present a darker wood contrast against the body wood makeup, as well as providing a more complex depth to its voice. With a 25.4" scale and 14th fret join, this guitar has a focused sound with massive sustain. The whole package is completed by the appointment of a Fishman MX-T soundhole pickup, delivering a lush, natural representation of the acoustic sound of the GPC13E, by means of neatly tucked away controls and a built in tuner for easy muted tuning during a performance. The model even comes with a soft-shell case to protect it at home or on the road.
The Martin GPC13E is a fresh take on the Martin formula, with a delightful combination of tones and attractive natural wood grains to present a beautiful guitar, sure to turn heads with its eye catching gloss finish in addition to its incredible sound. For an affordable yet professional sounding performance electro acoustic, the GPC13E ticks all the right boxes.
