General What is your overall opinion of this product? It has an excellent sound, fine action, fine intonation, and is a joy to play. I can pick it up any time and it is always in tune and ready to play. I've used it around the campfire for years, and it always comes through. Freebird takes a little arranging, but I've done it many times. WIth a strap, it plays like any other guitar, or better. I love the action on it.

Cute, but not easy to play

What is your overall opinion of this product? The Backpacker is cute as all get out, has an "interesting" tone but not easy to play because of it's body shape and heavy neck weight. Body design too small for setting on your leg to play. Neck too heavy to use with a strap. Have to hold on to it to play or it tips down. I will be returning this "cute" guitar.

What is your overall opinion of this product? Thin tone due to small body size and difficult to hold comfortably when playing sitting, but overall I am pleased. Very portable. Stays in tune. I recommend it when you need to travel lite.

Excellent for What It Is: a Really Portable Guitar, Especially for NY Apartments!

What is your overall opinion of this product? I think this is a fine guitar for my purposes, of course it might not work for everyone. I wanted an acoustic guitar that I could practice without being too loud in my apartment, and to bring to friend's apartments. I wanted it to have acoustic guitar action, that mimics my regular dreadnought, and that still has the sonorous quality of an acoustic. I also wanted an acoustic that was easy to carry in the subway. This guitar meets all of those requirements. Why only four stars? Well Martin can do better and if they can generate a design that will still give the low E resonance and still achieve all the other goals, well that would be a 5-star guitar.
