Martin GPCPA3 Sapele Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics

  • Solid top for enhanced tone with age

Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics

You'll be ready to perform with Martin's GPCPA3 Sapele, which comes equipped with Fishman's F1 Aura Plus electronics system. Fishman is a leader in acoustic amplification, and it shows in the natural tone it reproduces in the GPCPA3 Sapele acoustic-electric. The Fishman Aura Plus system can replicate the sound of various studio microphones, for incredible tone on stage or recording directly.

Solid top for enhanced tone with age

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the GPCPA3 Sapele, Martin chose a solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a rich, lively sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top the tone will age gracefully as the wood matures, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Smooth playability from the Performing Artist Series neck

Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin GPCPA3 Sapele acoustic-electric. The GPCPA3 Sapele features one of Martin's amazing Performing Artist series necks, whose slimmer profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort.
