They don't call it the "Grand Performance" model for nothing. The GPC16E from Martin is a Grand Performance body, acoustic-electric cutaway guitar that is incredibly comfortable, exceptionally resonant, and simply gorgeous. Crafted from Sitka spruce, Mahogany, and solid black ebony on the fingerboard, it features a Modified Low Oval, Performing Artist taper neck and Fishman® Aura® VT Enhance™ electronics, which combine to make this box fully functional and accessible to players of all skill levels.
This 16 Series Grand Performance cutaway model is crafted with satin-finished mahogany back and sides for a loud sound with a bright treble response. It includes a Sitka spruce gloss top for balanced tone and projection and a high-performance neck taper for ease of playability up and down the fretboard. The GPC-16E comes equipped with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance NT2 electronics and is strung with Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 light gauge strings.
