Details

Player's Perspective

The guitars in Martin's Performing Artist series combine classic Martin tone with practical modern features. These instruments are perfect for gigging and recording guitarists who play in many different musical settings and need an acoustic that can keep up. This GPCPA4 has a springy, lively voice, an exquisitely comfortable neck and a great electronics system that makes it easy to just plug in and play. The open position is balanced and warm, perfect for laying a nice foundation under some vocals. The mid to upper registers take kindly to single note playing - if you're an acoustic blues player, you'll love the way this guitar responds to expressive nuances all over the board. At 1 3/4", the nut width is in that sweet spot that keeps everyone happy - it's wide enough for fingerpickers, but slim enough for flatpickers and strummers. This guitar can easily become your go-to gigging acoustic.

Special Features

The GPCPA4 adds more tonal color and variety. The model features a 14-fret cutaway with fast and comfortable Performing Artist profile necks, and Fishman’s F1 Analog onboard electronics. Perfect for any performing artist.
This GPCPA4 is a workhorse acoustic built on the Grand Performance body style, a hefty design that offers powerful but smooth bass response and a detailed high-end. The top is solid sitka spruce and the sides and back are sapele. This is a tried and true tonewood combination that provides projection, clarity and balance. The Performing Artist profile neck is very comfortable - it's slimmer than a vintage design but not paper thin. Electronically, this axe is equipped with the Fishman F-1 Analog pickup system. This is a nuanced, responsive pickup that can really breathe with the acoustic sound of the instrument. This guitar is ready for as many gigs as you can throw at it.
