This pre-loved Martin GPCPA1 is a serious performance tool that offers outstanding tone, playability, and versatility in a roadworthy package and at a friendly price point.
The Martin GPCPA1 is a gorgeous, great sounding, great playing, stage-friendly super-axe that is as feature-rich as it is grounded in the Martin tradition. The bonus is this GPCPA1 sound great unplugged as well. No, she doesn’t sound like a D28, since that is the standard so many people use. She has a typical Martin voice though. It only takes a little time to master the highly intuitive F1 Aura System that makes the guitar adaptable to just about any performance or studio situation. Fundamentally, the Aura system emulates the sound of your guitar played through a microphone instead of through a pickup system. And by using an algorithm that emulates a microphone’s interaction with the warm, breathy, woody, open presence of a real acoustic, you can get studio-level clarity that can be turned up really loud. The microphone emulations in the Martin’s F1 Aura system include some very cool specimens too: the DAP 4011, Schoeps CMC64g, Earthworks QTC 30, AKG C414-B, Neumann KM 84, Soundelux E47, GT Velo 8, Shure SM57, and a Neumann U 87.

This Martin GPCPA1 has a truly intoxicating tone. The Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood pairing produces a beautiful combination of warmth and clarity, bursting with overtones that will keep your ears ecstatic for hours. Lower tuning like CGDGBD and DADGAD, showcased the Martin’s impressive capacity for big bass sounds without over driving the box or sounding tubby. In standard tuning the guitar has a sweet fingerstyle tone, but when you dig in with a flatpick, it can really bark with great definition. She is in excellent condition since her former owner treated her well. You can find more info on these Martin series HERE.
