Product Description

While the Little Martin is Martin’s smallest guitar, it is very big on tone, quality and versatility. The LX1E acoustic electric model features a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides, and a warm satin finish. It’s ideal for travel, student practice or for just playing around the house or campfire.

Wonderful Little Martin!

What is your opinion of this product?
This is a great product, great small body for travel or just easy playing comfort but it still retains a lot of tone. The solid top really lets the mids/highs ring out but the bass is surprisingly retained for such a small instrument. Comes with a high-quality Martin-branded TKL gig bag that's also a perfect compliment for this guitar. My only complaint is that the electronics have changed and the pictures/description hasn't been updated. There's no on-board tuner and the controls are mounted inside of the top of the soundhole now, which is nothing awful but it's not what I prefer so I would rather have that older version. Setup-wise out of the box the action is very low/comfortable and it is very easy playing, the fit and finish is so smooth it feels great in your hands and is very precise. This is an instrument of quality that is very well crafted and will last a long time as probably one of your favorite guitars to just pick up and go.

Wow
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this guitar. Sounds much bigger than it’s size. Has range and doesn’t sound like a toy guitar. I also have the Baby Taylor BT2 and the Martin is a better guitar. Well made and solid acoustics. I changed the strings to Elixir lights and sanded down the saddle as the action was too high out of the box.

LOVE IT!
What is your opinion of this product?
was a bit worried after reading that one review, but took a chance & it worked out. out of the box, action was almost there. needed to come down a tad at the saddle, a little sandpaper & a set of earhwork, 80-20's lights, got a terrific finger-style ax. loved the sustain, the single notes or chords drift on & it's right out of the box! AMS got it to CAL, thru sleet & snow in a few days.

Expected more from Martin
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar plays nice and looks terrific but the wires inside flop around and just moving the guitar around you can hear the wires hitting the inside of the guitar. I would thyink this should not have passed the quality check.
