15% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

Martin introduced the X Series line 20 years ago with the aim of producing an acoustic guitar from more eco-friendly materials while still retaining all the earmarks of a Martin guitar: great design; impeccable tone; and instant playability. The GPC-X2E continues this vision in grand fashion. This Grand Performance body is made from a Sitka spruce top with a figured macassar HPL back and sides for bold, balanced tone and stellar projection. A select hardwood neck and fingerboard offers smooth playability and response, and the deep cutaway gives you access to those higher notes and exploratory chordings. When you are ready to plug in, onboard Fishman MX electronics kick out gorgeous amplified tone.

    Fine appointments and detailed craftsmanship 

    Other fine appointments on the GPC-X2E include scalloped X-bracing for tone support and longevity. There’s also a stunning mother-of-pearl pattern inlay on the fingerboard and multi-stripe rosette inlay soundhole. A genuine white Corian nut and saddle provide further tonal support and a great aesthetic to this outstanding instrument.

    Smooth playability from the Performing Artist series neck

    Whether you’re recording for hours or plan to play late into the night, the Performing Artist series neck is ideal for its comfort and smooth response. The slimmer profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play extended sessions without fatigue. This neck has also been hand-rubbed, so it is extra smooth — a feature we love here at Music Experience. And with a smooth, deep cutaway, you get effortless access to the higher frets.

    Performance ready with Fishman MX electronics 

    The Martin GPC-X2E comes equipped with Fishman MX electronics that are ready for you to hit the stage. The pickup is mounted inside the soundhole — it’s the epitome of discrete. Fishman is a world leader in acoustic amplification, giving you exceptional plugged-in tone with the Martin X Series GPC-X2E.

    What Martin Says...

    This Grand Performance sized model features a cutaway body with high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides. New mother-of-pearl pattern inlay on the rosette and fingerboard lend a richness to the GPC-X2E, making it as impressive to look at as it is to play. With a Performing Artist neck, fingerboard, and bridge of select hardwood, the sound transfer of this model has been greatly improved. It is equipped with Fishman® MX electronics and strung with Martin’s Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 strings. With a new, soft gig bag featuring headstock, bridge, and endpin protectors, a durable water-repellent exterior, and foam padding, this model is ready to go anywhere.
