You are looking at a Martin GPC-18E Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 2006079. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

For a warm-sounding, well-balanced, and versatile acoustic-electric guitar, look no further. The Martin GPC-18E sports Martin's mid-sized Grand Performance cutaway body, and features genuine mahogany back & sides and a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped forward shifted X bracing. Strummers will love the surprising volume and projection that the GPC-18E offers, and at the same time, fingerstyle players and flatpickers will surely be impressed with the guitar's incredibly dynamic voice. Not only does the smaller cutaway body make the GPC-18E exceptionally comfortable to play, but the neck is too thanks to its High Performance taper and its superbly ebony fretboard that's undergone a precise PLEK setup.

New for 2016, the Martin GPC-18E comes fitted with exclusive Fishman Aura VT Enhance electronics for unbelievable plugged-in sound and performance. This system employs the most advanced Aura Acoustic Imaging technology to preserve the distinctive acoustic voice of the guitar with studio microphone quality. The electronics feature a bridge plate mounted transducer, which adds dimension, resonance, and body to the guitar's amplified sound. From the studio to the stage, the GPC-18E is ready to take on anything you throw at it.

The GPC-18E boasts an array of premium features including an ebony Modern Belly bridge with compensated white Tusq saddle, a bone nut, nickel open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs, and a selection of classic appointments such as a Style 18 rosette, Style 18 back purfling, Old Style 18 fingerboard inlays, a full gloss finish with aging toner on the top, a faux tortoise pickguard, and more!
