This Martin GPC-16E Acoustic Guitar features Koa back and sides with a Sitka Spruce top. The slimmer 000 depth makes this guitar very comfortable to hold. The Koa back and sides gives this guitar has a nice, sweet mid-range with good lows and sparkling highs. Reacts well to your touch. Great overtones and harmonics. A great all around guitar. Not as loud as a D series Martin but still loud and punchy.
The high performance neck taper is incredibly comfortable and easy to play. My hand flew up and down the neck with ease. This guitar has been Plek'ed at the Martin factory so they are perfect and the intonation is spot on.
The Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT2 pickup system is incredible. Very easy to use and sounds great through both a PA and an acoustic amp. Makes this a great guitar for live performing.
