A "little" Martin goes A Long Way

Adding to their compact and affordable, yet highly playable "Little Martin" Travel series, the new LX1 features the same great sounding hand-rubbed solid Sitka Spruce top you would find on the top-of-the-line Martins, Mahogany Pattern HPL textured finish back and sides. Comes with a gig bag.

Like its predecessors, the 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. These Little Martins are durable and easy to play. They are the perfect "pick up and play" guitars that let you jam at home or on the road and are the perfect choice for students. Little Martins come with a padded gig bag made of a tough ballistic cloth exterior, plush interior, backpack straps and a front zipper compartment.

Big sound in a small guitar!

This guitar is a dream for tiny guitarists. It has the excellent sound of a full size Martin with the portability of a travel guitar and it is extremely confortable to play. I had trouble choosing between a Baby Taylor and the Little Martin until I had them both in my hands at my local music store. The Martin just felt and sounded right.

I Love My Martin Lx1

I am very amazed at the sound and quality of this guitar. With its own unique sound I am very pleased with my purchase. A great guitar for on the go. I thank the people at Sweetwater for their excellent service.

Sweet little guitar

Beautiful Martin guitar. The little Martin is big on sound. The smaller size makes it convenient for my small fingers and for travel. The bag provides great protection without the weight and bulk. The sound is perfect-exactly as a Martin should be. My brother had a Martin that I envied for its beautiful wood and sound. The quality of the little Martin rivals his. The wood grain is beautiful; construction is second to none. I love this guitar; you will too

Fantastic Little Martin

I own a Martin D-45 and D-18. I bought two of these great little guitars. One for a buddy going to Afganistan and the other to keep around the house to play around with. To my surprise, this guitar gets picked up the most! Fanastic sound, plays effortlessly, and is always right there to just pick up and play whenever you want. If you don't have one of these, I suggest that you do. I will most likely buy several more for Christmas presents.

The Martin LX1 Little Martin

I really didn't expect this little box to have the volume that it has with good tone. I bought this to take into the prison where we have a ministry because the D35 got heavy before we got to where we go. I am really satisfied with this product.
