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.

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.

My Little Martin

I received my Little Martin promptly. It was packaged securely and came in perfect condition. A big surprise was the package of candies that fell out of the box when I opened it. That was a very nice personal touch. I play it almost daily and it is a perfect size guitar to learn flat picking. It maintains its tuning and has a good sound. I love it!!

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

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.
