The Martin GPCPA5 Acoustic-Electric Guitar is one of Martin's most affordable Performing Artist Models, this Grand Performance Cutaway is great for gigging or practicing at home. Virtually identical in size, materials, and features to last year's DCPA5 Dreadnought and GPCPA5 Grand Performance models, this year's "PA5" offerings are still made of high-pressure (wood fiber) laminate (HPL) backs and sides, but with mahogany (rather than koa) imprinted grain due to popular demand. Everything else is the same -- a solid Sitka spruce top braced with Martin's Hybrid "X" bracing system, a fast and slim Performing Artist Profile Stratabond neck, and a black Richlite Performing Artist bridge and fingerboard. The tuners are chrome enclosed with large chrome buttons and Fishman F1 Analog onboard electronics provide state-of the-art sound reinforcement. These stage ready environmentally friendly cutaways represent one of Martin's best values.
