Introduced at Nashville NAMM 2019, the GPC-16E is an exciting addition to the redesigned 16 Series guitars. This guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. The GPC-16E is a 14-fret Grand Performance cutaway with a thinner 000 depth. Other appointments include forward shifted X scalloped X bracing, a High Performance neck and a bold herringbone rosette. The GPC-16E comes equipped with Fishmans Matrix VT Enhance electronics. This guitar is ideal for the guitar player who plugs in or plays at home and wants the comfort of a slightly smaller guitar but with exceptional tone; a guitar with deep rich bass and bell like trebles that rosewood and spruce are known for.

Solid Sitka Spruce Top and Solid Rosewood Back and Sides
Guitars of high quality are typically built with solid wood construction; the GPC-16E offers a solid Sitka spruce top and solid East Indian back and sides. The 16 series feature rosewood which, up to this point, had be reserved for Martin's higher end guitars. Sitka spruce from the Pacific Northwest has been selected for its top and is the perfect pairing for this exquisite guitar.

Grand Performance 14-Fret Cutaway with a Thinner 000 Depth
The GPC-16E features Grand Performance Cutaway body paired with a thinner 000 depth. This is perfect combination for the player who wants the feel of a slightly smaller guitar without having to give up tone or volume. The cutaway also allows for access to the higher register of the guitar.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics
The GPC-16E comes with Fishman's Matrix VT Enhance electronics factory installed. This includes the volume and tone controls (VT) in the upper part of the sound hole and the Enhance control (a bridgeplate transducer) in the lower part of the sound hole. The Enhance feature adds an output and sensitivity boost, perfect for those with a percussive touch. The battery box is located between the end pin and 1/4" jack so replacements do not require removal of strings.
