The GPC-Aura by Martin is a Special Edition model designed to impress. Brimming with top quality appointments and crafted from excellent materials, the GPC-Aura emits that prime, well-balanced Martin tone. Martin have made the Special Edition GPC-Aura to bring a vintage acoustic to the modern musician, and with such quality, you will be blown away by its sound.
The Special Edition Aura has a Grand Performance Cutaway body profile which offers optimal comfort while you play. The body cutaway provides you with complete access to all of the neck, so you can reach the higher registers comfortably.
Martin have chosen solid Sitka spruce to form the body top which gives your tone clarity and precision all with plenty of volume. For a well-balanced tone, the back and sides have been constructed from East Indian rosewood. The Sitka spruce and rosewood form a tight partnership which produces a full-bodied acoustic sound.
Firmly fitted to the body is a sturdy select hardwood neck for a clean and comfortable playing feel. The neck is topped with a certified African blackwood fingerboard decorated with hexagon pearl inlays for a unique guide up and down the frets. The tonewoods used in the neck, fingerboard and body contribute to a better all-round sustain.
The excellent tone of the Special Edition GPC-Aura GT is transferred naturally even when amplified thanks to the Fishman F1 Aura+ onboard preamp. The preamp features its own tonal presets allowing you to experiment with your sound by editing the presets as you wish. The preamp is easy to use and equips you with complete control over your tone. The Fishman F1 Aura+ comes with a chromatic tuner with auto-mute function and even added compression and feedback prevention. These features all contribute to a clean-sounding electro acoustic.
Hardware and Finish
The headstock of this Special Edition model features skeleton button nickel ratio tuners to ensure high quality tuning accuracy. At the lower bout of the body, a blackwood bridge maintains a firm connection between the strings and body, improving sustain and intonation.
The smooth natural finish of the body is adorned with a double-ring pearl soundhole rosette which stands out beautifully. Beneath the soundhole is also a black pickguard to protect against scratches. For ultimate protection and storage Martin include a hardshell case.
