Guitar junkie, some body stop me.
Plesant supriseI highly recommend this LXK2 for anyone wanting a small guitar. I have purchased 4 travel size guitars, Backpacker, Baby Taylor, Guitarelele, and this LXK2. The Little Martin is my favorite by far. I also own a Taylor GS mini, and love it, this LXK2 is more comparable to that guitar than the others mentioned, for intonation, even volume.

My new favourite!!I just got this guitar a couple of days ago. I was never able to test it before bying as this guitar is really hard to find in Spain. So i have to read a million reviews over this guitar and a few others I had in mind. I ordered mine on Thomann...I have no words to describe how wonderful and magical this guitar is!! I own a gibson and a top range takamine...and somehow, this has become my favourite already!! I´m a small size girl with thin hands, so this guitar seems to have been done for me!! Its sound is just like any other Martin guitars I´ve played before, and I love the fact that the HPL material makes it sound so loud and acoustic!! I´m scared to play it too much cause i want it to last forever!!!

Thank you Martin!I'm in the market for my second full sized Martin acoustic. I lost my dreadnought of many years to the 1994 Northridge earthquake. There are no words to desrbe the angst I felt to see "him" lying there amidst the rubble of that quale in a pile of pieces. I felt as if I was attending the funeral of my closest friend and lover all rolled into one. Only now, eighteen years later, am I able to begin to search for another Martin and have my choices whittled down to aoen of a half dozen! LOL Anyway - while in a music store in POtlan, Oregon, I spotted the Lil Martin while I was on a sofa trying out the HD28V - my son's birthday is on the fourth of July, and he has a very beautiful Tay;or acoustic, but these days working long hours has litle time to play it. HE and his wife often go hiking and camping with friends though, especially this time of the year, and so as it turns out, whle I am still struggling over which full sized Martin to buy for myself, I am heading back to Portland in a few days to buy my thrity year old son the Lil Martin for his birthday! He seemed a little envious that I was going to get a Martin even though he loves his Taylor, so I thuight this Lil Martin would be a great idea as a gift. Now I an say - " Here! Now you have a Martin also!" I was blown away by the heart and soul and care that went into making this small, lightweight guitar for while one is on the road, or on the trail. Heck - I have a hrose and I ride a lot - Maybe I will get myself my full zsized Martin and a Lil Martin for myself! There are sixty other people who trail ride who keep their horses where mine stays and many of them play guitar - MaybeI will be a good ambassador for the Lil Martin for you guys - as I betcha once my friends see me riding with a wee guitar along for the ride - soonenough, just about everyone who plays at all will be buying one! Again - thank you Martin for your love of guitars which lives on in each and every one of them - I swear that I can feel it each time I pick up one of your fines instruments and hold it in my arma. To everyone online in hte making of Martins at Sweetwater -each one of you should know that a piece of you is in that instrument to live on and that is something to feel really good about!

Little in name only!If you're looking for a nice, well made, great playing travel guitar the 'Little Martin' is for you! The Koa is really cool, looks great and has a warm tone. I was never a fan of the Martin backpacker, so when this travel guitar came out I had to give it a look! It has a pretty large sound also. Good tone, looks and Martin quality!

The little Martin that sounds big.I just bought this little jewel and love every min. of playing. If you close your eyes you would say the sound is from a full size Martin. It has that wonderful low E sound that only a Martin has and on top of all that it travels well. Who says you can't take it with you.
