Very good condition The origingal case is also in very good condition The GPCPA4 Siris features Martins Grand Performance cutaway body shape, which is similar to an OM model but with rounded upper-bout shoulders instead of the OMs square shoulders. The guitar is constructed entirely of solid woods, including the Sitka spruce top, siris sides and the three-piece back, which is fabricated from two siris wings and an East Indian rosewood center wedge.Martin vaguely lists the neck material as solid hardwood, and the neck on my example looked like mahogany. The fretboard and belly bridge are made of Richlite, which is a natural fiber composite of recycled tree pulp and phenolic resin that possesses extraordinary hardness and strength.
The neck provides Martins traditional 25.4-inch scale length, 20 frets and a fretboard width of 1 3/4 inches at the nut. The guitars curvy appearance is enhanced by modest decorations.
Fingerboard position markers consist of small dot inlays placed between the low E and A string (plus an extra dot at the 12th fret between the A and D string), and the back and top are surrounded by single-ply grained ivoroid binding. The neck, back and sides feature a smooth satin finish, while the top is sprayed with a mirror-like gloss finish. Two button-like controls and a similar-size LED are mounted in a triangular configuration on the upper bass bout just above the waist.A digital chromatic tuning function calibrated to A=440 is accessed by pressing down the volume control until the LED lights up. The tone control sweeps from no EQ (fully counter clockwise) to a scooped-mid tone with the knob in the full clockwise position. Pressing down the tone knob engages a variety of phase settings to suppress feedback and provide optimum bass response. PERFORMANCE Unplugged, the GPCPA4 Siris produces lively, brilliant tone with ample sustain and resonance. The bass may not be as booming as a Martin dreadnought, but this is actually a good thing for guitarists who will amplify the instrument, as no low-end roll off is necessary. This also gives the guitar a more balanced overall tone, with midrange becoming slightly more prominent and treble exhibiting plenty of attractive shimmer. The GPCPA4 Siris sounds big and full when chords are strummed, and players can strike the strings quite forcefully before the top overdrives.
Thanks to its siris back and sides and Hybrid X Scalloped bracing pattern, the guitars volume output is so impressive that many players in more intimate settings may prefer not to plug it in. The tone control mainly works like a midrange cutfingerstyle players probably wont want to go past the 12 oclock position, while rhythm players working with other instruments will enjoy how the sound cuts through the mix with the tone control at 2 oclock or higher. The tuner is very accurate and easy to use, showing the note being played and illuminating a green segment when properly tuned. The Performing Artist neck profile is relatively shallow and rounded, with just the slightest hint of a V between the first and fifth frets.The guitar still has that beloved Martin action, with a little extra comfort and playing ease.
