Classic tonewood combination for big sound

For such an affordable guitar, the Martin Performing Artist GPCPA Shaded spares no expense on its tonewoods.

What's more, the GPCPA Shaded 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!

Modern electronics for the modern performer

Martin takes the acoustic-electric guitar on an evolutionary journey, equipping these instruments with the Fishman F1 Analog electronics system. Far more than a simple pickup system, the discreetly mounted F1 Analog system offers a convenient onboard tuner as well as volume and tone controls to help take charge of your sound. This is the Performing Artist GPCPA Shaded, a well-balanced instrument that's great for any style of music.

You'll love the feel of the smooth satin neck finish.
