The look and sound of a cherished Martin guitar at an affordable price.
Martin’s Road Series line of guitars features a blend of the legendary Martin tone with solid-wood construction and lightning fast playability. The Martin GPCRSGT Grand Performance cutaway acoustic electric guitar was designed for the player that is searching for incredible tone and playability, at an affordable price.
Its all solid-wood construction produces a tone that will rival some of the most expensive guitars made today. To start with, Martin selected a Sitka spruce top as the basis of the tone engine. They chose Sitka spruce because it’s a very expressive tonewood that produces the right amount of tone, volume, and dynamics. To augment the crisp tone of the Sitka spruce, the back and sides is fashioned of Solid Sapele Mahogany. Sapele adds just the right amount of crispness and bass to the sound of the guitar. Unlike laminate or layered woods that are stiff and lack bottom end and resonance, a solid wood instrument has crystal clear highs, a punchy bottom end, and lots of sustain.
The Martin GPCRSGT is designed using the Grand Performance body. The GP body is a little deeper than your typical 000 or OM guitar. The 4.5” depth gives you added volume, while producing an even tone across the entire musical spectrum. The combination of tonewoods and body produces an instrument that is extremely expressive and dynamic. It will have all the power of a dreadnought, blended with all the balance of a smaller auditorium-sized guitar.
Playability is a must for many of today’s musical styles, and Martin got you covered. The GPCRSGT has one of the most comfortable necks on the market. The slimmer profile and taper lets you glide across the neck with ease. You will be able to make a smooth transition from your electric guitar to this acoustic. And as an added bonus, the GPCRSGT was precision setup with one of Martin’s Plek machines. As one of the last steps in final setup process, Martin uses the Plek machine to give you the ultimate guitar setup. If you were to have a technician Plek one of your guitars, it would cost you anywhere from $250-$400. Martin includes this bonus on every Road Series guitar for free. If you’re a fingerstyle player, professional, novice, or singer songwriter, you are going to love the way this guitar sounds and plays.
The Martin GPCRSGT comes complete with Fishman Sonitone electronics. This compact, easy-to-use electronics package lets you plug in and play. There’s no need for you to spend hours getting a great guitar sound. Just plug in, and you’re ready to go. For easy access, the volume and tone controls are positioned directly in the soundhole of the guitar. This gives you the ability to make changes to your tone in real time.
The Martin GPCRSGT Grand Performance Acoustic Electric guitar is everything you have dreamed about in an acoustic. Get that great legendary Martin tone, at a price that will be sure to make you smile.
