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:

      If I were to own a Martin, this would be it. Playing on it every now and then at the store, I fall more in love with the tone every time I play it. Put it in front of some mics and you'll have yourself a solid acoustic recording. Get this guitar or add it to your collection!

              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.

                        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!
