Martin's Performing Artist mojo

The Performing Artist body style's narrow waist is responsible in part for the Martin GPCPA5's stunning clarity and projection, as well as its comfortable playability. The Performing Artist profile mahogany neck and buttery fingerboard will instantly feel like home. You'll find the Black Richlite Martin uses for fingerboard and bridge to be the perfect stand-in for endangered ebony. This axe is a head-turner; from the unique dot markers to the shape of the pickguard, understated good taste is evident throughout. The GPCPA5 is designed for performing, but it's also an instrument you'll want to treasure in your family for generations.

Fishman F1 Analog electronics for rich, natural sound

Equipped with Fishman F1 Analog electronics, the Martin GPCPA5 takes the acoustic-electric back to basics. This simple pickup system gives you an onboard tuner, along with tone and volume control, and an innovative phase control that improves bass response at low volumes and suppress feedback when you're cranked. Simple and effective. Coupled with the tonewood selection, the result is pure, natural amplified sound. That's the Martin GPCPA5: a well-balanced axe that's great for any style of music.
