From Our Research Team:
Big Sound From a Small PackageLike its predecessors, this latest addition to the Martin line is built with the same Martin quality craftsmanship, with an emphasis on producing great sound in a smaller guitar. The Little Martin is durable and easy to play. It is the perfect "pick up and play" guitar that lets you jam at home or on the road and is the perfect choice for students.
In a nutshell, the Little Martin is comfortable to play (despite it's slightly smaller size), tonally viable, affordably priced, environmentally responsible and compact - making it THE perfect choice for travel, practice or students! The Little Martin combines a modified 0-14 fret tenor Martin shape with a 23" scale length. The one panel back and sides are crafted from Mahogany Pattern HPL and the top is cut from Spruce Pattern HPL making the Little Martin amazingly friendly in just about any climate. In fact, the Little Martin has been atop the summit of Denali and several additional challenging environments and all reports are that it performed amazingly well!
Your Little Martin comes with a padded gig bag made of a tough ballistic cloth exterior, plush interior, backpack straps and a front zipper compartment.

I'd buy two.
by fromThis is a great guitar to have around the house for those quick imprompt sessions. You can't compare it to a full-size Martin in materials and craftsmanship, and it isn't meant to be. I own a Martin 0... read more [+]00-28 which costs 10x as much. That said the Little Martin (gave to my dad as a gift) is solidly built and travels well. It's been on plane trips (fits in overhead bin), camping trips and road trips. I almost bought a Baby Taylor, but after seeing two screws exposed in the neck near the highest frets, I decided it was NOT worth the money. I am seriously considering getting another Little Martin. My brother has a koa hpl version and loves it. close [-]

It would probably make a great beach guitar since the laminate body would be more resistant to the salt air, humidy and tempature changes than a wood guitar. Not a concert instrument, but something I would love to have on a long trip. close [-]
