Martin LX1E Little Martin Travel Electro Acoustic Overview

Martin guitars have a unique, piano-like tone revered by musicians and music lovers all over the world. The X bracing patterns and quality tonewoods employed contribute to the complexity and richness of tone.

The Martin Standard series sets the standard (as the name suggests) for any high-quality acoustic guitar.

Over time the company has found ways to offer the Martin sound and feel for a lesser price and accommodate the entry-level and immediate player. Each series has a typical player and function in mind.

This is accomplished by stripping down the features and cosmetics featured on Standard series models leaving the essential Martin build, giving you the classic and characteristic tone revered around the world.

Travel guitars arrived during the nineties and have never left. The idea of a compact scaled-down instrument with a ¾ scale length really embedded itself as a must-have item for guitar players. As well as being ideal for taking on holiday, many people like to have them as ‘sofa’ guitars, something lightweight and playable to strum in your downtime.

Martin & Co. introduced the Little Martin to meet the rising demand for smaller ¾ scale length instruments. It has a proportionately scaled down dreadnought shape and comes with various options.

The LX1 utilises high-pressure laminate (HPL) woods for the back & sides. HPL provides a stable material with which to construct a guitar body and offer the instrument at an attractive price.

This model is offered with a solid spruce top. Spruce is the most common sprucewood in use today. Spruce is good for volume and will age nicely over the first four or five years of the guitar’s life, improving with time.

HPL makes a great deal of sense for travellers as it is durable and resistant to the ravages of humidity which is such a bugbear for quality solid tops. Ideal for camping trips, festivals, gap years and safari.

The nut width is 1 & 11/16 inches, standard width on many guitars.

The electroacoustic Little Martin is fitted with Fishman Sonitone pickups and preamps.

The pickup is an undersaddle piezoelectric strip. They are feedback resistant and are clear and responsive. A lighter touch is recommended as heavy strumming tends to cause the pickup to sound thin. Preamps boost the signal strength with battery power in order to deliver the ‘hot’ signal required for amplifiers and DI’s.

Martin & Co. introduced the Little Martin to meet the rising demand for smaller ¾ scale length instruments. It has a proportionately scaled down dreadnought shape and comes with various options.

The LX— is a nice inexpensive option for beginners, travellers or just sofa musicians. Due to its size, the Little Martin has many practical applications.

A durable and water-resistant gig bag is also supplied to ensure that this guitar can be kept safe and dry whilst travelling.

Amazing guitar and amazing service. Did order this one from a different on line store, it should have taken 3 days, was then put back to a week, then a month, then indefinitely after having already paid. Cancelled my order, went to GAK, they got it to me the next day. Very happy guitarist!! Will definitely return. Thanks.
