You are looking at a Martin GPC-28E Grand Performance Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 2017797. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

The Martin GPC-28E Grand Performance is ideal choice for players who need a versatile, comfortable acoustic-electric with exceptional playability and stage-ready features.

The GPC-28E features Martin's Grand Performance Cutaway body, which is a bit smaller than a dreadnought and has a waist that is much more tapered. This particular body shape is perfect for players that need a guitar that will adapt to any playing style, offering an instrument that will sound amazing whether you're strumming chords or playing fingerstyle arrangements. The body is crafted using a Sitka spruce top with non-scalloped Forward Shifted "X" Bracing and East Indian rosewood back and sides. This gives the GPC-28E plenty of tonal depth and richness, and more than enough volume and projection. The cutaway design makes playing acoustic riffs past the 14th fret an absolute breeze.

Offering outstanding playability and comfort, the modified low oval select hardwood neck boasts Martin's ergonomic High Performance Taper that provides an exceptional playing feel from the first fret to the last. The neck also features an ebony fingerboard, a 25.4" scale length, and a cozy 1-3/4" nut width.

New for 2016, the Martin GPC-28E comes equipped 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-28E is ready to take on anything you throw at it.

Other premium features include an ebony Modern Belly bridge with compensated white Tusq saddle, a bone nut, chrome enclosed tuners, and an array of classic appointments such as a Style 28 rosette, Style 28 back purfling, Style 28 fingerboard inlays, and more! Comes complete with a ply hardshell case.
