Solid top for tone that enhances with age

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the GPCX2AE Macassar, Martin chose a solid sapele top. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully as the wood matures, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Smooth playability from the Performing Artist series neck

Whether you're recording for hours or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin GPCX2AE Macassar. The GPCX2AE Macassar features one of Martin's outstanding Performing Artist series necks, whose slimmer profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort.

Great-sounding Fishman Sonitone electronics

The GPCX2AE Macassar is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which delivers great-sounding output onstage and in the studio. The Sonitone system puts volume and tone controls directly in the soundhole for easy access.
