One of Martin's most affordable Performing Artist models, the GPCPA5 is available in a Grand Performance body size with a solid Sitka spruce top, koa-patterned high pressure laminate back and sides, High Performance Neck and Fishman’s F1 Analog electronics. Using advanced construction techniques, Martin is able to produce this fine guitar with a sound that rivals models costing much more.
Fishman’s F1 Analog preamp system
The F1 Analog has 2 control knobs and one display. By pressing the volume button down for 2 seconds the tuner is activated. The innovative one-knob tone control lets you choose between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (fully counter-clockwise) on up to a “mid- scooped” tone with emphasized treble & bass and reduced midrange. Pressing the tone knob repearedly cycles through various phase settings that improve bass response while aiming to suppress unwanted feedback.

Comments about Martin Performing Artist Series GPCPA5K Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Wanted a high end acoustic guitar that I could leave out of a case and this fit the bill because of it's laminate back and sides. The great sound and ease of play was a big bonus for this price. This is my first Martin and I'm very pleased. Would highly recomend this guitar!
