Product information - Martin GPC-14 Custom

Grand performance acoustic guitar from the Martin & Co. Custom Shop

With the Martin GPC-14 Custom, the traditional U.S. manufacturer from Nazareth in Pennsylvania presents a custom shop Western guitar with selected fine woods and a detailed finish. The mid-sized Grand Performance design produces very defined midrange and treble frequencies in addition to powerful bass frequencies. Therefore the instrument is suitable for expressive strummings as well as for filigree pickings. Furthermore, the body is equipped with a generous cutaway, which allows optimized access to the highest frets. The flat neck also guarantees comfortable playability, so that even complex fingering patterns can be mastered easily and obligingly. Visually, the instrument is enhanced by gold hardware and a gauzy high-gloss finish that gives the observer a deep look at the multi-faceted grain of the woods. The scope of delivery includes a case.

Defined sound and fast response

In order for the acoustic guitar to produce a balanced sound, the top is made of North American Sitka spruce. Since the grain is very tight and even, the wood vibrates very easily, resulting in a fast-responding tone. This phenomenon is supported by a flat scalloped X-bracing and the very thin varnish. Framed by a binding of koa and an inlay of abalone, the top wood comes into its own in a very tasteful way. The Style 45 soundhole rosette and the inlay around the part of the fingerboard that rests on the top are also perfectly matched. The overall picture is completed by a thin tortoise pickguard.

Fine woods for back and sides

To enrich the sound with a pleasant warmth, the manufacturer uses selected cocobolo wood for the back and sides. The coarse-grained precious wood is particularly striking because of its red colouring, which is interspersed with dark and light lines. The opened back, separated by an elaborate back stripe, is bordered by a multi-ply koa binding that creates a clear transition to the sides and blends smoothly into the neck. In the lower part of the rib there is a hole that is intended for the separately included strap pin on the one hand and for the installation of a pickup system on the other.

A comfortable playability

Thanks to the Select Hardwood neck with a low-oval profile, all 20 frets can be gripped easily and obligingly. These are set into an ebony fingerboard marked with fine Style 45 inlays for orientation. While the compensated bridge inlay and the 44,5 mm wide bone nut guarantee a clean intonation on the whole scale length of 645 mm, the high-quality Schaller Grand Tune tuners allow an easy and precise tuning of the 6 steel strings. Between the tuners is a generous Inlay of mother-of-pearl, proudly displaying the company name. Two large snowflake inlays in the bridge round off the overall picture harmoniously.
