Martin SPEC-GPC12E Koa Acoustic Electric Guitar Koa Special Burst – limited to only 150 models available, the Martin SPEC-GPC12E Koa sports a top-class set of specs handpicked by our in-house team of guitar experts. It all begins with Martin’s supremely versatile Grand Performance body shape, along with a traditional spruce top for a touch-sensitive response for both flatpicking and fingerstyle. However, turn the SPEC-GPC12E Koa around and reveal an absolutely mesmerizing set of highly flamed layered koa back and sides that give you the warmth of mahogany crossed with the cut of maple. The neck’s ebony fingerboard, a High-performance Taper profile, and a wide 1.75-inch nut width provide playability to please everyone from the hardest-hitting strummers to whisper-quiet fingerstylists. LR Baggs Element Electronics complete the package by capturing every minute sonic detail of the SPEC-GPC12E’s unplugged tone when it’s time to plug in onstage.

Traditional and time-honored tonewoods

One of the most prized timbers in the entire traditional tonewood canon, the layered koa that forms the back and sides of the SPEC-GPC12E Koa produces a sound that blends the warmth of mahogany with the bell-like crispness of maple. Plus, it doesn’t look half bad either — a single glance at the GPC12E Koa’s stunningly figured, highly flamed koa veneer is sure to enrapture the eyes of the audience after you’ve captured their ears. A classic spruce top finishes it all off with a wonderfully touch-sensitive response. Combined with the versatile Grand Performance body, this superior selection of tonewoods results in a 6-string acoustic-electric ready to tackle anything from heavy-handed strumming to the most delicate melodic fingerstyle subtlety.

Comfortable Grand Performance body style

The forward, balanced tone of the SPEC-GPC12E Koa comes from its Grand Performance body style, which provides excellent projection and focus with a warmth that doesn’t boom in the low end or harsh out in the higher range. This sound is popular for both fingerstyle nuance and full-chord strumming. The Grand Performance size gives you more lows than 000 models, but is still supremely comfortable during marathon gigs.

Amazing sound onstage

The SPEC-GPC12E Koa retains LR Baggs’s popular Element acoustic pickup system, a favorite among our acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that enhances the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier and an unobtrusive volume control that’s mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element gives your SPEC-GPC12E Koa Special the amplification you need with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
