Product Description

Martin is proud to introduce the Little Martin. Like its predecessors, this addition to the Martin line is built with the same Martin quality craftsmanship, with an emphasis on producing great sound in a smaller guitar. The Little Martin is durable and easy to play. It is the perfect pick-up-and-play guitar that lets you jam at home or on the road and is the perfect choice for students. 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.

The Little Martin is part of Martin's X Series. Martin Guitar has long recognized the serious nature of the earth's dwindling resources and has focused attention on alternative materials. Martin is committed to making Martin guitars that are within reach of every aspiring guitarist. The breakthrough X Series features guitars that are constructed with a combination of highly compressed wood fibers (high-pressure laminate, called HPL) and traditional tonewoods. Martin has crafted ways to build traditional Martin shapes with HPL that yield incredibly long-lasting, affordable guitars. What's more, they've figured out how to not break your bank while still giving you the famous Martin sound!

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Martin products.

4.5 out of 5 (31 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great sound for the ize -- I love it!"
Sound: It sounds great for the size -- much better than other comparible models Feature: Pretty im pressive for what it is. Nice tuners, stays in tune, and a really nice gig bag. Ease of Use: Very easy to play. I find myself neglecting my much more expensive full size guitar to play this one around the house Quality: Nice quality for the money, and the purpose. You probably won't record with tis thing for a rich tone, but it stays in tune even with the most aggressive strumming. Value: It's great bang for the buck Manufacturer Support: N/A Overall: I highly reccomend this product to any guitar player's collection. It's really fun. After I bought it, I was like why did I just buy this thing? I should take it back, and put the money towards a more "useful" guitar. But now, i would never part with it... it is becoming one of my favorites.
Style of Music: Alternative, country, rock,

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good guitar for reasonable expectations."
Sound: This is a good sounding guitar for its size. It loses a couple points, because I find that it can sound a bit "boxy." If you're a finger style blues player, you might actually find that to be a plus. I'm going to swap out the saddle for a bone one and do a few tweaks to the guitar, and I think I can get it dialed in just right. Feature: The case is well padded and useful. I think it's a nice touch to include a gig bag with any guitar. Even though this isn't the most expensive guitar in the world, I think it's pretty considerate of the folks at Martin to save their customers the money. Ease of Use: The action was a bit high for my tastes when I got it. I'm told that most of these come out of the box with a perfect low action, so maybe mine was just a fluke. I gave the truss rod a tiny turn, and I switched to a slightly smaller gauge set of strings and the problem went away. Quality: I've only had the guitar for a few days, but it's held up pretty well. I've already managed to drop it and overheat it in my car with no real adverse effects. This little guitar is my official beater, and I think it should serve the putpose well. Value: Let's be honest, this is not the greatest guitar in the world. However, it's probably the best guitar for what it's designed to do. I played this guitar next to the Baby Taylor, and I much preferred the slightly longer scale length. In terms of tone, I'd say the two were pretty much tied. Manufacturer Support: Martin has got excellent customer service. The Wow Factor: It's an average looking guitar that is going to get beat up over the years. I'm actually thinking it's going to look better once it's been "weathered" a little. A good beat up guitar can be a thing of beauty to some of us. Overall: This guitar fulfills everything that I want it to do.
Style of Music: a little of this a little of that

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
