An Ideal Travel Companion Guitar

Thanks to its diminutive dimensions with a total length of just 35″, the LX1 Little Martin is easy to pack up and take anywhere you want to play. It fits easily overhead or under airplane seats, in the trunk of your car, or in the storage compartments of buses, trains, RVs, and more. The included gig bag provides protection during transport so you can travel worry-free.

Wherever your adventures take you, the portable LX1 Little Martin is ready to go along and serve up bright, vibrant Martin tone anytime you get the urge to play. Its convenient size also makes it a great option for everyday practice, especially for younger players with smaller hands and bodies.

Impressive Tone from Premium Solid Wood Construction

Constructed with premium solid tonewoods and craftsmanship, the LX1 punches above its weight in sound quality and volume. It features a top made from solid Sitka spruce, prized for its articulate and responsive tone. The back and sides utilize laminated mahogany in an HPL textured finish for warm, balanced sound.

Despite its smaller 23″ scale length, the LX1 Little Martin sings with rich, vibrant tone that belies its compact size. It has plenty of dynamic range to hold its own for rhythm playing or melodic single-note runs. The tone stays balanced and clear across the tonal spectrum from sparkling highs to tight lows.

Easy and Comfortable to Play

The LX1 Little Martin’s modified low oval neck profile offers a slender and comfortable feel. It measures 1 11/16″ at the nut, ideal for smaller hands or shorter fingers. The shorter 23″ scale length reduces string tension, making the LX1 very easy to play. The fingertip-friendly fretboard is constructed from Richlite, an eco-friendly composite material.

The LX1 Little Martin comes outfitted with Martin’s reliable 18:1 ratio nickel gears sealed for life and a compensated saddle for excellent intonation right out of the box. It’s ready to play whether you’re sitting down for daily practice or an impromptu jam session on the go.

Quality Appointments and Martin Craftsmanship

Even in its downsized form, the LX1 Little Martin incorporates many of the thoughtful construction details synonymous with Martin’s pricier USA-made instruments. Some highlights include:

– Solid Sitka spruce top
– Mahogany HPL textured finish back and sides
– Rust StratabondTM neck for durability
– Richlite fingerboard and bridge
– Chrome enclosed gear tuners
– Corian nut
– Multi-stripe rosette

It all adds up to impressive value in an affordable, portable instrument that still carries the Martin name and DNA. The LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar embodies over 180 years of acoustic guitar craftsmanship in a travel-friendly form factor.
