Short of size and scale, the CF Martin "Little Martin" acoustic guitar is anything but lacking in features! The  Mahogany Pattern HPL (high pressure laminate) textured finish also sports a solid Sitka spruce top with hand-rubbed finish for a stylish look, along with a Rust Stratabond neck and Solid Morado or East Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

These materials help deliver that Martin sound in a compact and affordable instrument that's perfect for the traveling troubadour. It's also great as a beginning instrument for the small-handed player. Additional appointments include a Black Micarta bridge with compensated Tusq saddle and chrome small-knob tuners. Includes a padded gig bag.

Best guitar for what I needed it for

I have a father who loves playing and buying him a mini to be able to play when he visits my house is amazing. Buying a guitar that is quality is just as important. After much research this Mini Martin LX was the best buy i could have done! Im so excited to hear him play during his next visit!

The guitar itself is great. But the GigBag leaves A LOT to be desired. I wish Martin would either provide a decent GigBag OR not sell it with one at all & drop the price on the item so I can buy my own good quality GigBag.

This guitar is fantastic! I got it for my birthday and it sounds great! Wonderful for practice, and the sound is beautiful, definitely worth buying especially if you have small hands like I do!

Great little guitar! No comparison to the Baby Taylor!! The Backpacker has awful tone, so if you are looking for a guitar to travel with, play outdoors, or even to let guests come into your home and play (and you want to hide your expensive Martin!) this is the guitar for you. The sound is incredible for something this small. It is also great for teaching kids or adults with small hands. It lives up to the Martin name for quality.

Great Little Martin!

"Awesone resonance. Light and easy to play. Tuned it to ""Open G"" tuning to specifically play Hawaiian Slack Key with; and couldn't be happier. Now I wanna get the LXK2 Koa model. Definitely worth 5 stars!"
