The Martin GPX1AE Grand Performance Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish is an impressive stage-ready model that offers delightful Martin craftsmanship with Fishman Sonitone USB electronics with direct-recording capabilities. Whether you're hitting the studio or the stage, the GPX1AE is an awesome guitar that is suited to any playing situation.
Fantastic Grand Performance Body
The body is crafted to the Grand Performance body style, which is slight smaller than a dreadnought and perfect for those who prefer a timbre that offers less low-end dominance, and accentuates mid to high-frequency tones. Whether you play fingerstyle or using a pick, the GPX1AE is a dream to perform with thanks to its lightweight and comfortable playing feel.
Resilient High-Pressure Laminate
The body back and sides are built using mahogany pattern high-pressure laminate with textured finish. Laminate is incredibly resilient, and maintains its consistency well with regard to changes in temperature and humidity. This characteristic means that wherever your music takes you, you can rest assured that your guitar will retain its tonal consistency.
Paired with the back and sides is a reverberant solid Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced using the hybrid ""X"" scalloped bracing pattern. The solid Sitka spruce braces and pattern aid the soundboard in its ability to resonate fully to project powerfully, whilst preventing reinforcing its structural integrity. The top has been treated to a hand-rubbed finish, which allows the natural spruce grain to shine through superbly.
Birch Laminate Neck
Fitted to the body is a birch laminate neck in rust finish. The neck is designed to provide the utmost stability during performances. Shaped to the very slender Performing Artist profile, the neck is a dream to run your hand along, allowing you to play for hours and hours in total comfort. Married to the neck is a 20-fret richlite fingerboard, which adds an elegant and resilient playing surface to explore.
Fishman Sonitone USB
The GPX1AE acoustic-electric is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone USB pickup system, which translates the luxurious timbre of the guitar transparently. Whether you're recording at home or taking to the studio, the USB output allows you to connect to your soundcard, Mac or PC, for direct-recording with minimum effort required.
The Martin GPX1AE Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish is fitted with Martin SP Lifespan phosphor bronze light gauge strings, enabling you to get performing as soon as your new pride and joy arrives.
