A Travel-Friendly Martin Acoustic-Electric Guitar

What's better than a great-sounding travel-sized musical companion? The Martin LXME Little Martin acoustic-electric has the answer: amplification! Travel-sized acoustic guitars are great for the mobile musician, but with its onboard Fishman Isys T electronics, this little guitar is perfect for the stage as well. A spruce-pattern HPL textured finish top with mahogany back and sides gives you plenty of projection and resonance, and a cozy birch laminate neck with a smooth solid Richlite fingerboard features 20 frets of comfortable action.

HPL Mahogany Body for Sound and Durability

Mahogany is a great tonewood choice for smaller acoustic guitars -- it lends depth and body to the instrument, making it sound bigger than it is. Don't let the smaller size of the Little Marting LXME throw you; you'll get a nice projection when you strum assertively, plugged in or not. Martin's patented mahogany high-pressure laminate (HPL) material assures durability and longevity -- perfect for the traveling musician.

Birch Laminate Neck in Modified Low Oval Shape

The modified oval shape of your LXME Little Martin acoustic-electric guitar makes for a snug fit. The mortise/tenon neck joint is sturdy and secure, and the Richlite fingerboard paves the way for smooth playability. You have a total of 20 frets at your disposal, 14 of which are positioned outside the body.

Fishman Isys T Electronics for Amplification

Taking in the resonance of your performance is this compact axe's Fishman Isys T electronics. A convenient onboard tuner keeps your strings intonation in check. Aside from your volume control, you have phase and contour switches to keep your signal clear of feedback and sounding its best.

Martin LXME Little Acoustic-Electric

While the Little Martin is Martin's smallest guitar, it is very big on tone, quality and versatility. The LXME acoustic-electric model features Fishman Isys-T electronics, and is constructed of patented mahogany high-pressure laminate (HPL) back, sides and tops.

Like its predecessors, the Little Martin LXME acoustic-electric guitar is built with the same Martin quality craftsmanship, with an emphasis on producing great sound in a smaller guitar. It's ideal for travel, student practice or for just playing around the house or campfire. Durable and easy to play, it's the perfect "pick up and play" guitar.

Your Little Martin comes with a padded gig bag made of a tough ballistic cloth exterior, plush interior, backpack straps and a front zipper compartment.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (36 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Little Martin (small in price, BIG in value)"
Sound: Well, it is a travel guitar, so I didn't expect the sound to be that great. However, when I plug into the "Mini-Q" my accustic mini-amp really brings out the sound. When unplugged - it is loud enough for me... Feature: The gig bag is awesome! I will not only store my guitar in it, but will use it everywhere I go. The "Mini-Q" is great, but if you do not plan to amplify, it really is not needed. Ease of Use: There was minimal information that came with the guitar. Pretty much "self explanitory." Quality: This Little Martin is a beast! It weighs more than my full size classical guitar. However, I would prefer it to be heavy and duarable than light and fragile. My fret bars need to be filed. they stick out too far over the fretboard (a bit uncomfortable). Also, my high "E" string is very close to the edge of the fretboard. It takes some getting use to... Value: I am very happy with the guitar. Price is an issue for me; so, I have to look for bargains/sales and I believe the Little Martin was a great bargain for what you get. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: This Little Martin is appealing - That's for sure! It also makes you want to take it everywhere you go. Overall: Depending on the construction of the guitar, I plan to use it daily for a long, long time... I thought the smal size would be uncomfortable/awkward - I was totally wrong! It is very comfortable and easy to play.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WOW!!!"
Overall: How did they pack all of this sound into a tiny guitar? It is better than my Taylor Baby by light years, and is great either unplugged or plugged in. The built in tuner is very convenient. I am doing a European tour in January, and I will be taking this little beauty with me. It should pose no problem on the airplane because if its size, and it won't be a burden to tote around. Nice gig bag, too. I am more than happy with my purchase, and happy that zZounds makes it so easy!
