New Guitar Review: Martin Guitars GPC-16E | Affordably Priced and Made in the USA!

Martin guitar continues to roll out new compelling updates to its models that bring more value while also returning to vintage designs and aesthetics. The updates to the Martin 16 series continues these efforts with new tonewoods, features and aesthetic choices along with an extremely afforable price in an all-solid wood acoustic guitar that is still crafted in Martin's Nazareth, Pennsylvania factory. The GPC-16E combines these features and value with the Martin aesthetic in a modern Grand Performance cutaway model. The Grand Performance body is wider at the lower bout than a Martin OM or 000 but is has a tighter waist and lighter bracing than a dreadnought. This is the guitar that is meant to perform well across a number of different playing styles. The smaller top and lighter bracing ensures the guitar will respond well to a light touch that comes with finger style performances. The additional real estate on the lower bout means that a flat pick won't overwhelm the guitar and volume is available in spades. In short, this guitar handles what ever you throw at it. The availability of solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides is typically not something that is available at this price from an American manufacturer. The fast playing neck and Fishman electronics finishes off this compelling option that is sure to turn some heads.
