Martin GPX1AE Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Solid top for enhanced tone with age
  • Smooth playability from the Performing Artist Series neck
  • Great-sounding electronics with USB connectivity
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 GPX1AE, 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 GPX1AE acoustic-electric. The GPX1AE 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.

Great-sounding electronics with USB connectivity

The GPX1AE acoustic-electric is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone USB pickup system, which gives you great-sounding output, onstage and in the studio. The Sonitone USB system puts volume and tone controls directly in the soundhole for easy access, and the USB output gives you plug-and-play connectivity with your Mac or PC, for instant recording in your DAW of choice.

Martin GPX1AE Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Martin styling with Fishman electronics in a Grand Performance model
  • Hybrid "X" scalloped bracing enhances projection and tonal balance
  • Solid Sitka spruce top for a rich, lively sound that will enhance with age
  • High Pressure Laminate back and sides, with mahogany pattern
  • Fast Performing Artist neck with buttery Black Richlite fingerboard
Plug into the PA or your favorite DAW with the Martin GPX1AE acoustic-electric guitar!

Awesome Service

The service was outstanding and I will certainly do business with Sweetwater again. One issue I have is with the guitar. Although it has an great tone, sustain and sounds as good as my OM 28E. I was a little disappointed with the very high action on the upper frets. All in all the folks at Sweetwater do it right. Customer service is a priority with this company and it shows.

Great style and sound

The name on the head stock says it all, looks like The Martin OM - 45 DELUXE and it sounds great

Martin GPX1AE

The neck shape is similar to a Gibson 60s slim. Nut width like an OM, at 1.75". String height like an electric. Good, full tone, and it stays in tune. I like the GP body shape and size. Sweetwater sells a Martin case, GPCPA5K, that is correct for this guitar. I asked Martin and they referred me to it.
