Just OK

By gearjunky

Comments about LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

This is a 3/4 guitar with below average sound for its size.
I actually think they did a better job of the gig bag than the guitar.
After owning the guitar for 4 years (purchase new) with very little use and in a humidity
controlled invironment, the spruce top below the bridge cracked in the middle so I have just
squeezed in some ProBond so it does not go any farther.
I have found MUCH BETTER 3/4 guitars for the price.
I do a lot of local and personal repairs on guitars (especially LP necks) and have an old
checked L2 that I braced from the inside that will put this thing to shame.
I am finding that a lot of the old big names and one of the new have started to sit on there collective laurels while selling low price junk that sells because of the name, and relying on the high price spread to carry that name, and in doing so, dupe the customers.

Little Martin

Comments about LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

I got this guitar for my grandson to learn to play. It's a very solid guitar--sounds like a Martin, tunes like a regular size guitar. I am very pleased with the quality and the price.

Great guitar

By gearjunky

from Undisclosed

Comments about LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

I wanted an acoustic for my bedroom and to travel with, and actually got more than I bargained for. This is a very nice guitar with more than enough tone range to satisfy most people. While this is a 3/4 sized guitar, the fret spacing is not that different than my electrics or regular sized acoustics. (I still have problems going for that 5th fret) I wish I would have bought this Little Martin a long time ago.

Quite Good All Things Considered

By Edith Grove

from Albuquerque, NM

Comments about LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

Hey, it's a travel guitar. No way is it going to sound like a full size dreadnought. But it's really pretty good. Lots of sustain, decent bass response and way easier to manage than the unwieldy Martin Backpackers. I got this to take overseas and it looks like it should hold up alright. I find myself grabbing it to take over to friends' houses and it will likely get to see some time at some camping out bluegrass festivals. My only wish would be for the gig bag zipper pulls to have lock holes in them. I'm still thinking about how to secure this to train luggage compartments so I don't have to sleep with one eye open.

Martin LX1 Little Martin

By Bob Beardsley

from Leesburg,FL

Comments about LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

Look no further. This is THE best travel guitar you could get. Beautifully built, great tone from a small package. I travel all over Florida and this guy can take the weather while travelling. Fits without any hassles into all overhead luggage compartments. Gig bag is excellent protection/storage. Great sound at all levels, high,mid, low. Action was set perfectly from the factory and the strings that come on it are good quality Martin strings.
