Thumbs up FS: 2014 Martin Custom Shop CS-GP-14 only 50 made

$4,700 with free shipping to Cont. USA. Payment via PayPal or Venmo. Because of the wood on this guitar, it is only for sale in the USA. Feel free to message me with an questions or to set up a phone call.

Great review of this model with sound samples:
http://onemanz.com/guitar/reviews/ac...-gp-14-review/

Martin CS-GP-14 in fantastic condition. Hide glue construction, Guatemalan Rosewood back with Cocobolo wedge, torrefied European Spruce Top. Top of the line Martin Custom Shop features. Factory Fishman Aura VTS pickup. One of only 50 made.

No issues, as it’s been kept in my temperature and humidity controlled guitar room at the studio. This was the actual guitar displayed at the NAMM show, so it’s got a choice wood selection. The torrefied European Spruce top adds a nice chimney treble to the guitar. It’s very balanced and has a ton of head room. Responds well to a light or heavy touch. The performing artist neck plays very fast. I’m selling to purchase a 00 size acoustic for the studio.

From the Martin Site:

Limited to 50, this grand performance, 14 fret non-cutaway model is built with complete hide glue construction. Both the rosette and fingerboard are inlaid with a concave diamond design made up of orange/red spiney recon stone with solid MOP. Looking as awesome as it sounds, the torrefied certified European spruce top is married with Guatemalan rosewood back and sides. The back also features a figured cocobolo wedge and the side sound port for the Fishman Aura VT electronics features a rosette ring. The mahogany neck with the performing artist profile has a carbon fiber neck rod. Great looks, great sound makes a great guitar.

Can you, would you please repost your photos using something other than Photobucket. A lot of us here cannot see your photos because they are on Photobucket and we have left them for Imgur and others. I would appreciate it a lot if you can and will do that. I do believe you will receive more interest from us who can't and won't use Photobucket. Thanks....just trying to help.

wow, what a staggering beauty! I didn't know I loved guatemalan till I saw this particular guitar several years ago. Looks dead on great cocobolo or brazilian with the best figure.

Buy with confidence here, Patrick and I have done several guitar deals and become good friends in the process. you couldn't buy from a more square dealer or with better taste in guitars. I'm very surprised to see this go up as I've heard the rave reviews since he bought it.

Martin left out of the specs some of it's best attributes (it's measurements) that make it very similar to the Santa Cruz OM Grand, not quite an M or Jumbo but more might than a typical OM.
Extra cc's, but not enough to make it ostentatious under the arm on the couch.

Grand Performance
Total Length 40 3/8"
Body Length 19 3/4"
Body Width 15 3/4"
Body Depth 4 1/2"

brilliant 14 fret design IMO. Best luck to the seller and new owner. someone will be very happy with this one.

I’d prefer a cash deal or trade plus cash, but I’m open to trade offers as well. I’m most interested in other Martin or Santa Cruz guitars.

Any Martin Custom Shop, Authentic or Santa Cruz owners looking to try something different? I’m open to trades. This guitar has the headroom of a dreadnought without the boxiness.
