Solid top for tone that enhances with age

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the GPCX2AE Macassar, Martin chose a solid sapele top. 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're recording for hours or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin GPCX2AE Macassar. The GPCX2AE Macassar features one of Martin's outstanding Performing Artist series necks, whose slimmer profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort.

Great-sounding Fishman Sonitone electronics

The GPCX2AE Macassar is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which delivers great-sounding output onstage and in the studio. The Sonitone system puts volume and tone controls directly in the soundhole for easy access.

Martin GPCX2AE Macassar Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Martin styling with Fishman electronics in a Grand Performance cutaway model
  • Sitka spruce X-bracing enhances projection and tonal balance
  • Solid sapele top for a rich, lively sound that will enhance with age

Better than expected

Very Fine guitar! I was not expecting such a sound and easy to play instrument. I replaced strings with lighter gauge and adjusted action until fingers became conditioned, yet guitar still sound far above any I have tried.

That Warm Fuzzy Feeling

I have not had that warm fuzzy feeling when picking up and playing an instrument for 20 years plus. I have been looking for a new acoustic just a little over five years. The wood combination makes this Martin warm and not to bright sounding. Playing with a pick or fingers hard or soft you can get very detailed articulations. The low action and sustain of the strings are worth the price of admission alone. I never thought I could own a top of the line Matin guitar and now I do. A loud shout our to my sales engineer Jed Elliott Thank You!

Martin GPCX2AE Macassar acoustic-electric guitar

I was very pleased with the service I received from the Sweetwater crew. The Martin guitar, I ordered, came in on time and was perfectly setup. I also appreciated the follow-up call,asking if my order had arrived in good condition and if I was satisfied with my instrument. I will continue to use Sweetwater for all my musical needs.

I got this guitar exactly 3 hours ago and I can't put it down. The guitar is simply amazing and plays like a dream. It has a beautiful balance of warm and bright tone. It's not too much low end and it's not too much high end shimmer. This guitar actually sustains and resonates brighter and louder than my Martin DX1KAE. Its super easy to play standing up and the neck feels great. It arrived to me in impeccable condition and I only needed to tune it very slightly. The intonation was spot on. If you have your eye on this particular model, I highly recommend it.. You will have yourself one beautiful guitar .
