Martin Guitar Reviews


Copyright 2015 - Privacy Policy - Terms Of Use - Contact Me
The GPCPA1 is a guitar on the high-end of the pedigree.  It has a beautiful finish with a bright Sitka spruce top which contrasts beautifully with the grained Indian Rosewood back and sides.

This guitar has a neck with a more parallel taper (than other Martins) which makes for smooth playability up to the high frets.

This Martin has a dynamic acoustic voice and will be ideal for players requiring a wide dynamic range from quiet fingerpicking backdrop to stronger strumming for vocal accompaniment.

The prize of the package is the Fishman F1 Aura pickup, designed exclusively for Martin.  It's a very powerful amplification system which uses recorded sound images (recorded with this guitar) to add realistic microphone-like tone to the pickup.  It also makes for a great recording tool.

The pickup provides individual control over EQ and preset mic models, which provide near limitless variety of high-quality tones.

This guitar would be an excellent choice for anyone more comfortable recording plugged-in than using external microphones.
