The Martin GPCX1AE acoustic-electric guitar is an incredible value for a great-sounding and great-playing instrument. Its mahogany-patterned high-pressure laminate back and sides are topped with real Sitka spruce, giving it a clear and bright tone. A Performing Artist neck made from rust birch laminate and topped with Richlite plays wonderfully and will never warp. Fishman Sonitone electronics translate the GPCX1AE's tone beautifully onstage too, making this an exceptional guitar, whether you're strumming on the couch, recording, or playing live.
