Hard to believe --a left handed Martin for this low price.  True to its roots as a CF Martin guitar innnovative instrument features a solid Spruce top and solid Mahogany back and sides - the travel instrument worthy of the CF Martin legacy. The unique contour of the Mahogany neck and 15-fret Rosewood fingerboard combined with the guitar's distinct body style make this one of the most comfortable travel guitars we've ever played. A padded carrying bag is included.

Sam Ash Direct gives you 24/7 customer support and a best in class 45/60 day return/price protection policy. We have been Martin dealers longer than most others have been in business.  Why wait? Call or click today.

So easy for me to play as a beginner


I had read some reviews really complaining about this guitar, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality when it arrived. It is easy to play, comfortable to hold, and has a great sound. If you want the sound of a full-size acoustic, you should buy an acoustic. I wanted a guitar that was simple to just pick up and mess around on and also not as bulky to bring with me places. I have smaller hands and I am a beginner, and I find this guitar quite easy to play. It's comfortable to hold, but as the neck is SO much heavier than the body, you most likely will have to use a strap. I am glad the guitar came fitted with strap knobs. I have another 3/4 size acoustic, and I will probably sell that now as I don't see myself ever playing that as I like this one so much more.

Great for what it is


For a travel guitar it fits the job perfectly. It's light, small, and durable. For the price, the sound quality is great, particularly chords. I recommend sanding down the bridge because the action is too high. FYI this comes with strings and a strap.

Love my funky little backpacker


Well constructed, built with tone woods -- the sound isn't bad at all considering the size/shape - whole lot of fun to play my one quibble is the action - RATHER high, but that can be remedied easily enough by fixing the saddle
