Introduced in early 2016, Martin’s GPC-18E borrows the best pages from the Performing Artist and Style 18 playbooks, and combines elements of each into a wonderfully fine sounding, great-looking, stage-ready Martin.
Completely redesigned and simplified for 2016, the guitar’s new Fishman Aura VT Enhance pickup combines Aura sampling technology with simplified controls for a streamlined and simple user experience and exceptional plugged in tone.
The guitar is built with Martin’s Grand Performer body – roughly the size of a 0000, but with Jumbo / Dreadnought body depth, and a rounded cut-away. It’s a style 18 guitar, and is dressed up as such, with a spruce and mahogany body and tortoise bindings, vintage toned top, Delmar celluloid pickguard, vintage style 18 rosette, and vintage style headstock logo. Open-geared tuner and 30’s profile belly bridge finish off the vintage package very attractively. Under the hood you’ll find traditional Martin forward-shifted scalloped braces, which is what’s making the guitar sound as good as it does.
Modified low oval neck with Performing Artist taper, 1-3/4” width at the nut, 2-5/32 pin spacing at the bridge. Bone nut, compensated Tusq saddle.
One of the most exciting new models Martin has introduced in recent years, we’re very excited to add this guitar to our offerings.
With very deluxe Martin hardshell case.
