The fine folks at Guitar Center are keeping the Black Friday flag flying with $100 off this Martin Special Road Series GPC Style 10 (opens in new tab) electro-acoustic guitar.

This Grand Performance-size cutaway (GPC) model is constructed using sapele – a variation of mahogany – and utilizes the now ubiquitous X-bracing developed by Martin in the mid-19th century. Indeed, the Pennsylvanian family business has been market leaders in the American flat-top building industry since 1833 (as proudly displayed on the headstocks of these legendary guitars.)

Martin’s flat-top acoustic guitar designs were already perfected by the pre-war era – in fact, little has changed with respect to those benchmarks, and every guitar Martin builds today leans on those golden era classics for inspiration. 

This Martin Road Series GPC Style 10 (opens in new tab) is no exception.
