Product Description

Martin's Backpacker can accompany you anywhere in the world or beyond.
One neat little package gives the guitarist portability, playability, intonation, and durability. It’s all solid wood, but light. You can stow the Backpacker, in the special gig bag that comes with it, in aircraft overhead bins, and play it in armchairs, cars, parachuting, on mountaintops, in canoes or anywhere your adventures take you. Choose your Backpacker from a steel 6 string guitar, or this classical nylon version. Standard features for the Backpacker Instruments include solid wood back, sides and neck, a one year limited warranty, and padded carrying bag.

Backpackers are fully playable compact travel guitars economically designed to meet the needs of musicians on the run! For their size, both the original steel string style and this nylon string classical model have a surprisingly rich and loud tone. Ruggedly built to withstand the rigors of outdoor situations like camping, hiking, and summer music festivals.

Martin Backpacker Classical Guitar Features:

  • Lightly braced solid tonewood top
  • Solid mahogany neck, back and sides
  • Includes Gig bag and Strap
Backpackers carry a one year limited warranty to the original owner.

Your general opinion of this product.
*** The guitar I received is not the one pictured*** the AMS catalog photo is the old version of the Martin Backpacker, with the small headstock and small soundhole. I received the new version, with the larger soundhole and the more normal looking, larger headstock. This is not a problem, in fact I've heard that the new design is louder with more projection. I just wish the photo showed the actual product.
