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.

Great Travel Classic Guitar
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a great travel guitar. It fits even on regional jets. It's light and fits in the top of luggage compartment on top of a backpack or small piece of luggage. Worst case it can be given to the airline attendant and placed in first class. The guitar has a full length neck which allows you to practice fretting. The sound is soft but that's expected with the limited size body.
