The Little Martin That Could!

The LXK2 Little Martin features Koa-grained HPL (high pressure laminate) on the top, back, sides, and headstock. The Martin LXK2 fingerboard and bridge are crafted from rosewood, and the neck is carved from natural colored Stratabond.

Like its predecessors, the Martin LXK2 is built with the same Martin quality craftsmanship, with an emphasis on producing great sound in a smaller guitar. The LXK2 Little Martin is durable and easy to play. The LXK2 is the perfect "pick up and play" guitar that lets you jam at home or own the road and is the perfect choice for students.

Your LXK2 Little Martin comes with a padded gig bag made of a tough ballistic cloth exterior, plush interior, backpack straps and a front zipper compartment.

Martin LXK2 is a great guitar!

I was looking for something to travel with that can take abuse and sounds good. This is the guitar for both of those! I was impressed how well this guitar is made and how good it looks. While the neck is smaller than a regular acoustic it is not that bad and easy to play. Jason Koons is my sales guy at Sweetwater and he is great to work with and

Great Starter Guitar

My daughter, who is 11, has been wanting to learn guitar for a long time - she picked up my full size constantly but her hand was too small. I purchased this Little Martin for her and planned it to be a travel guitar for me if she stops playing it. The neck size is great for her small hand, the sound is great, it stays in tune, and is an overall wonderful value - especially seeing that it comes with a gig bag. Sweetwater is great to work with - I am most excited about watching my daughter learn to play this fine instrument.

Great Travel Buddy!

Beautiful Koa pattern with a really nice sound. I find that it gets played a lot because it is always out and accessible. Very playable! Good job Mr. Martin!!

Great Little Box

Great Sound, in a small package. I purchased for travel, but so easy to sit around and pick, I now play it more than any other box I have. 4 stars for the LXK2 add 5th Star for the AWESOME customer service I received.
