2017 Martin GP18 E – £1849

NEW ARRIVAL  Most Martin body shapes have been around since at least the 1930s, and many have served as templates for other makers’ instruments. But in 2010, Martin introduced the grand performance (GP) shape, which is similar to the popular “small jumbo” design used by various manufacturers. The guitar’s body is somewhere between a traditional 000 and 0000 (also known as “M”) in size, but it’s slightly tighter waist and rounded lower bout give it a difference shape. Featuring a Spruce top, with Mahogany back  sides, it produces a rich full sound, with a deep throaty bass, yet well balanced and resonant across the mids and trebles. The guitar is capable of handling heavy strumming with a room filling sound, yet equally happy being fingerpicked and responsive enough when played delicately – it really is a great all rounder. The guitar is in excellent condition, the neck feels very smooth and easy to play, and has an LR Baggs Anthem pickup fitted. It comes in it’s original Martin hard case.
