A "Little Martin" Goes A Long Way

Adding to their compact and affordable, yet highly playable "Little Martin" Travel series, the new LX1E 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 and Solid Morado or Solid East Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The LX1E also features the addition of a Fishman Isys T preamp.

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.

Great Guitar with Great Service!

When I ordered my Little Martin, a representative from the company got in touch with me immediately. They shipped it out to me right away and got to my house about a week later (I live overseas). When it arrived it came very well packaged and was ready to play. The guitar itself is spectacular. It sounds great, compared to my Mitchell, and the Fishman pickup and electronics work great. Another thing, it is quite small, compared to my full size Mitchell. It, I would say, is a little bit bigger than a baritone ukulele. But overall, the guitar awesome and the service was too!

Great Guitar

This is a small guitar with a big tone! I had only played the acoustic model before I ordered this one and the acoustic electric model blew the acoustic one out of the water.

Quality sound, acoustic and electronic!!!

Great little guitar! Electronics are awesome, especially built in tuner! Great service from Sweetwater. Martin is a great guitar with a solid top that provides consistent good sound.

Couldn't be better

Awesome little instrument by martin! this is my first martin and id have to say... dont let the price and the size fool ya. If you're considering buying it, just go for it. No review is enough to explain how wonderful this instrument is. Great loud and very crisp sound. GO BUY IT! And no better place to buy it than Sweetwater! i read all about how great their customer service is. and my god do they go above and beyond. amazing customer service by sweetwater. they know how its done! extremely happy with my purchase!!

I couldn't believe it!!!!!

This is one of those guitars where I didn't get to play it first before buying but a very good close friend of mine recommended this one to me because of my small hands. Let me just tell you.... DO NOT LET THE SIZE OF THIS THING FOOL YOU! You will be amazed at its sound , its quality of build. They say this thing is just a practice guitar. In my opinion its a solid performer as well. And its a Martin. If they are proud enough to stamp their name on it, I'm not ashamed to play it out anywhere. Get it, you wont put it down.
