Premium tonewoods for an unbeatable sound

You just can't beat the sound of solid spruce and solid East Indian rosewood. The Martin GPCPA4 Siris spares no expense on its tonewoods. You'll love the crisp sound of the GPCPA4 Siris' solid East Indian center wedge, complemented by gorgeous siris wings. What's more, the GPCPA4 Siris is topped with solid Sitka spruce, adding rich and mellow overtones. When you imagine what an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound like, this is it!

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 GPCPA4 Siris, 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 out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin GPCPA4 Siris acoustic-electric. The GPCPA4 Siris 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.

  • Classic Martin styling with premium tonewoods in an acoustic-electric model

Want the classic good looks, smooth playability, and powerful tones of a Martin steel-string acoustic, at an affordable price? Look no further than these two new models from the venerable Pennsylvania guitar maker! The GPCPA4 Siris and the GPCPA5K are two new members of the company's Performing Artist family of acoustic guitars. Martin sent me one of each to check out, just in time for me to take them into an acoustic-guitar-based studio session I was working on. The GPCPA4 Siris features a cutaway Grand Performance body shape, with a solid spruce top; scalloped hybrid X-bracing; and siris sides and back, with a center wedge of East Indian rosewood in the back for extra tone. The neck is hardwood, with a Richlite fingerboard. The guitar delivers all the tone you'd expect from a Martin acoustic. It's powerful and punchy yet clear and articulate, with excellent sustain no matter where you play on the neck. It held up extremely well under a variety of alternate tunings, even with the low E string dropped as low as A. The GPCPA5K is also a cutaway Grand Performance shape, with a solid spruce top. But this model features an environmentally friendly HPL (high-pressure laminate) back and sides, with a beautiful koa wood pattern and an amazing-looking brown Stratabond neck with a Richlite fingerboard. With its thick midrange thrust, this guitar proved excellent for lead and melody lines -- the sustain was unbelievable! The GPCPA5K also worked well for both fingerpicked and strummed chords, with good note definition and a full sound. Both guitars feature Martin's fast-playing Performing Artist neck shape as well as Fishman F1 analog electronics -- a natural-sounding pickup/preamp system that works well both in the studio and live onstage. Hardshell cases are included. If you're in the market for a high-quality but affordable steel-string, look no further! The GPCPA4 Siris and GPCPA5K offer Martin construction, playability, and tone, at two nicely comfortable price points. Whether as your primary guitar, a stage guitar, or a backup to a higher-dollar acoustic, these instruments shine in every situation!
