Small beauty with fat and warm tone

It's a small guitar very smooth sounding, easy to play and very light.. You can carry it anywhere and just play... Warm sound and well balanced tone...

A Great Travel Guitar

I really like this guitar because it is light, and sturdy and very easy to transport. While it's volume is low, it has a nice sound. I bought this so I could travel and still keep up my practice and it has served me well on two separate trips so far.

Everything as advertised

The Martin backpacker is a neat guitar. It lacks a bit of the tone I had hoped for, but it is a backpack packer after all. Overall I'm pleased and I am more than pleased with the wonderfulSweetwater service. I highly recommend these folks.

Backpacker now in Classical!!

Generally very pleased with my classical backpacker. Nice wide finger board and decent sound for the size. Worked well traveling on airplanes; fit either under the seat of smaller planes or in the overhead of larger jets. I used it in a presentation at the Kennedy Ctr and it got rave reviews from the audience members!
