As we’ve come to expect from the team at Martin, only the finest appointments have been employed to partner the exceptional tonewoods, with the addition of Fishman electronics to make it as versatile as it is gorgeous.
- 6-string Grand Performance model with single-cutaway
- Solid Sitka spruce top with polished gloss finish
- Solid sapele back and sides delivers a warm timbre
- Select hardwood neck with Performing Artist profile and smooth satin finish
- Black richlite fingerboard with 20-frets adorned with Style 28 white ABS dot position inlays
- 16-inch radius, compensated white tusq saddle and white corian nut
- Includes Martin 375 hardshell case
The GPCRSGT body is shaped to the Grand Performance body profile with single-cutaway at the 14th fret, for greater access to the upper frets. The body back and sides are crafted using sapele, a tonewood that is renowned for its sumptuous warmth and generous helpings of mid to low frequency energy.
Paired with the back and sides is a solid Sitka spruce top, which is revered for its highly resonant properties that allows it to project the timbre produced in the body with the utmost efficiency. The benefit of this is a wide dynamic range, which is coupled with a brilliant articulation across each and every note to reward you with an enviable tonal palette to play with. The top is reinforced using the hybrid “X” scalloped bracing pattern with solid Sitka spruce braces to prevent the chance of warping over time, without impeding the soundboard’s ability to resonate freely.
The body top beneath the soundhole and along the lower bout is protected from pickscrapes that can occur during performances by a black pickguard. Protection has been given to the woods in the form of polished gloss to the top, back and sides.
SOLID GENUINE MAHOGANY NECK
The select hardwood neck is shaped to the performing artist profile, to guarantee a reassuring feel in the hand without feeling cumbersome or bulky. Married to the neck is a black richlite fingerboard, which is home to a total of 20 frets, with 14 clear frets. Martin's "Style 28" with white ABS dot position inlays provide a stylish navigational aid. The fingerboard width at the nut is 1-3/4” extending to 2-1/8” at the 12th fret. Although some fingerstyle players may prefer a 1-1/3” width at the nut, the guitar still accommodates fingerstyle beautifully.
The chrome enclosed tuning machines with small buttons uphold tuning integrity with the utmost precision. The bone nut maintains string tension keenly, whilst the black richlite bridge provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation and sustain.
FISHMAN SONITONE ELECTRONICS
The Martin GPCRSGT has been equipped with the Fishman Sonitone USB electronics system, enabling you to produce the same rich tones whether you perform acoustically or are amped-up. Using the elegant electronics to capture the depth of flavour offered by this superb model, you can rest assured that the subtle nuances of your playing style are translated transparently. The added benefit of the USB output is that you can connect directly to an audio interface, making it incredibly easy to record guitar parts wherever you are – perfect for capturing ideas on the road.
The Martin GPCRSGT Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is everything a gigging musician could want in a model – solid build quality, versatile tonal palette, comfortable playing feel, and accessible electronics. To ensure your model is kept safe and sound, Martin has included a 375 hardshell case with every model.
