CF Martin’s Performing Artists Series combine traditional Martin quality and with simplified electronics that will deliver on stage where it counts! Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today.

The CF Martin GPCPA5K Acoustic Electric Guitar boasts a solid Sitka Spruce soundboard with Martin’s “X” scalloped bracing. The back and sides are constructed from Koa Wood Pattern High Pressure Laminate with a Textured Finish. The GPCPA5K sports the Martin Grand Performance body style; a slightly smaller body that is similar to the dreadnought shape of the DCPA4 model, yet delivers that characteristic big dreadnought tone.

The slim taper neck with a Black Richlite fingerboard and traditional dot inlays will feel comfortable in your fretting hand. The GCPA5K sports a single cutaway body design that allows for extended range in your lead playing when you need to access those upper register notes.

The CF Martin GCPA5K also features the easy to operate Fishman F1 Analog electronics system. Pickup system includes Sonicore under-saddle transducer with convenient side mounted volume and tone controls and on-board chromatic tuner. Hardware includes a set of Chrome sealed tuners with large buttons. Case not included.

      Comments about Martin GPCPA5 Koa Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      A nice affordable koa wood guitar. Great acoustic tone from the scalloped X bracing. Fishman electrics make this guitar really sing when amplified. Sounds as good as many martins in the higher price range. This is a real hands on review from Eric @ Sam Ash Cincinnati.

                Comments about Martin GPCPA5 Koa Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                Martin has earned their reputation for excellence with every product they come out with and the GPCPA5 is no exception! Acoustic electric with built in chromatic tuner and tone control, Sitka top, Koa back and sides, stratabond neck, performing artist neck profile (meaning nice slim fast neck), black richlite fretboard including 20 frets, and finally chrome enclosed tuners with large buttons. Case is sold separately however this guitar is perfect for professionals as well as beginners and is one of the most affordable guitars that Martin makes. Go to Sam Ash today to check one out!

                  Comments about Martin GPCPA5 Koa Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  This is another affordable guitar under $1000 from Martin. Along side their popular Road Series, this Performing Artist guitar offers premium features at a reasonable price. Koa is prized not only for its' beautiful wood grain, but also its' unique tone. Over time it will really open up and provide a balanced tone across all spectrums. The Koa is complimented by a solid spruce top for a clarity and rounds out the tone perfectly. This guitar is great for any style of music and the included electronics ensure that it sounds great plugged in just as well as acoustic.

                  The Martin GPCPA5 Koa Performing Artist Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a great guitar at an affordable price! The Koa wood makes this guitar have amazing bass ends and a midrange that sings to you. The Fishman electronics are industry standards and the built in tuner helps you out in a pinch.
