While the "GT" sounds like a sports car model, in this case it stands for "Gloss Top." This has been a long-time favorite at Gryphon, and while most Martin models have seen significant price increases the company has wisely kept this all-solid-woods 000 at a reasonable cost. The mahogany and spruce combination has a warmer bass tone than you might expect, and we'd swear these most recent versions sound better than the same model from a decade ago. Very comfy low-profile neck shape makes it a joy to play.
