A Grand Performance acoustic guitar with a solid Sitka spruce top, HPL sides and back, a cutaway and pickup.

The Martin GPCX1RAE is an all-purpose guitar that cuts a good figure on stage as well as on the couch. Thanks to the solid Sitka spruce top, this Grand Performance delivers a surprisingly powerful sound and the Fishman Sonitone pickup provides the perfect sound on stage.

An all-rounder for a good price/performance ratio with the legendary Martin sound: The Martin GPCX1RAE

The Mexico Series by Martin stands for an affordable price segment and yet delivers the legendary Martin Sound, which has influenced our listening habits to a large extent. The idea behind the GPCX1RAE was to create a guitar that would work on stage as well as for purely acoustic use. The result can be seen and heard. Thanks to a solid spruce top combined with the Grand Performance body, the Martin GPCX1RAE resonates with clear bass, nuanced midrange and brilliant treble. The relatively flat neck profile and the flat string position provide a soft playability and lie comfortably in the hand. Chrome-plated die-cast mechanics ensure tuning stability and precise tuning.

The Fishman Sonitone of the Martin GPCX1RAE delivers an amazingly natural sound with a lot of dynamics

Simple but effective: The Fishman Sonitone

Another consideration in the development of the Martin GPCX1RAE was to integrate a pickup that removes as little acoustic resonance as possible from the Grand Performance body. For this reason, the Fishman Sonitone was chosen because the puristic electronic equipment largely preserves the acoustic sound. Accordingly, there is only one volume and one tone control at the upper end of the sound hole, which can be used to control the volume and tone characteristics. Amazing, however, is the increased transmission: The Fishman Sonitone provides a surprisingly natural and dynamic sound with great depth;
