The Martin GPCRSGT brings the Grand Performance body style with a Cutaway for upper fret access to the Road Series of affordable solid-wood guitars, graced with a lovely Gloss Top.
Slightly larger and deeper than the traditional OM and 000 Martins, the Grand Performance size was designed for versatility, providing good string to string balance with ample bottom end presence.
This Road Series version is made with solid sapele back and sides for good looks and classic mahogany-like tonal properites that enhance the clear, ringing voice of the solid Sitka spruce top, which has an attactive gloss finish like the more expensive GPs in Martin's Performing Artist Series. And its select hardwood neck has the same High Performance neck, neck shape, and string spacing as the PA series guitars as well.
And when it is time to plug in to kick out amplified tone, Fishman's Sonitone electronics come with on-board volume and tone controls, conveniently placed just inside the sound hole. And it has the added benefit of a USB jack right next to the usual quarter inch plug, so you can connect the guitar directly to your device for home recording, special effects, or headphone monitoring. And it is compatible with both MAC and PC technology.
From the coffeehouse to the festival stage, the GPCRSGT can handle anything required by today's rock, progressive country, alternative, roots music, and even Latin jazz - all for an amazingly good price.
