My Toy Guitar

Because of its size, I call this "my toy." When I want to play acoustic, I grab this. It's tone is soft but rich and I get that "peaceful easy feelin'" when I play it. It's beautiful to look at, travels well, and is lovely to play. For the price, the action is good, very playable, though not what you'd expect from a more expensive Martin. All in all, I'm very happy with this little gem.

MUCH more than I expected

I looked at all of the small travel guitars before asking my trusty guy Ryan Holquist at Sweetwater for his take...he knew I had already purchased 3 USA Martins and loved them so he suggested this little pup. To be honest, for the money I didn't expect much. It arrived enclosed in a nice little travel bag, perfect for why I bought it, travelling. I opened the bag and it was love at first site. After getting over the initial thought of "is this the whole thing?" I picked it up and tuned it. WOW WOW WOW.....Martin quality and sound through and through. I know it's not made in the USA but you'd swear this little thing was born in the USA and made of the finest materials. The fit and finish is incredible. It stays in tune well and has a nice tone. Don't expect a full bodied's not a full body. BUT I was shocked, expecting it to sound like a uke. Instead it sounds like a nice guitar. The action is low and it just feels right to play, not awkward as expected from such a small guitar. It sounds and plays as well as it looks. This is the best bang for the buck out there. It's a perfect travel guitar or guitar for a beginner who can't handle a full sized guitar. I will play this one when I am not travelling, it's that nice!!! If you are in the market for a small guitar, don't bypass this one..BUY IT!!!! You'll be glad you did.

Don't Be Fooled By The "Baby" in Baby Martin

A few months ago, I finally got my dreadnaught Martin, the HD28E Retro. Have Taks, Taylors, & Ovations. None equaled the quality and tone of the 28. I was in Vegas recently & missed my new beauty the whole time. Decided to get a travel guitar. Played the little Taylor & Martin at a local shop. Martin won hands down. Called David Merkowski at SW &I ordered the fully laminated Koa, (no spruce-dehydration wanted). I've been playing this little beauty since opening the box. Quality work from our Martin friends in Mexico. Seams, frets, fingerboard were top notch, especially for the price. Playability is very good, & although the volume & lows don't ring like a full size, this would do for intimate play or quiet practice. Haven't tried yet, but understand airlines are good with it going in the overhead compartments. Will let you know.

Plesant suprise

I highly recommend this LXK2 for anyone wanting a small guitar. I have purchased 4 travel size guitars, Backpacker, Baby Taylor, Guitarelele, and this LXK2. The Little Martin is my favorite by far. I also own a Taylor GS mini, and love it, this LXK2 is more comparable to that guitar than the others mentioned, for intonation, even volume.
