Martin GPCE Black Walnut Acoustic Guitar - Ambertone


Melds black walnut body with spruce top for all-around great sound with a classic-looking finish.

Martin chose black walnut tonewood for the GPCE Black Walnut Ambertone Grand Performance acoustic-electric because of its rich, warm color and its clear, bright trebles. Walnut produces the perfect amount of bass, and when paired with a spruce top, like it is here, results in a well-balanced guitar, ideal for recording, performing, and songwriting. The look of walnut stands out and is a great choice for those seeking a sound in between rosewood and mahogany (with a tinge of koa). The limited edition GPCE Black Walnut Grand Performance is finished with a gorgeous Ambertone Shaded top, offers ultimate playability and comfort with the finest Martin-made strings, and comes equipped with premium Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics, so that you sound as great amplified as you do unplugged.

Hardshell case is included.
