Marvelous Mini Martin!


The Martin LX1E "Little Martin" is a great playing guitar with a surprisingly great sound. How do they get so much sound out of the 3/4 size body? Easy, Martin magic! The smaller sized body allows players to enjoy a nice guitar with the ease of play that we are accustomed to with Martin. Staff reviewer at Sam Ash Cleveland

Little Guitar, Full Tone


If you are like me, and have dainty little hands, sometimes you feel discouraged by that lengthy 25.5" scale. Well, fret no more (pun intended)! Martin has come with the answer in a cute form factor, but the sound is still one of a full size. Chord play is easier, and the guitar is just more accessible. For younger kids, it's a great guitar to begin holding. For experienced guitar players the feeling is familiar, but everything is just closer and easier to reach. For little hands like mine, this is an excellent alternative. Oh, and it can plug in as an electric. That's right, this little guy didn't skimp on features!

Great sounding guitar


This is a great little guitar for the price. I saw someone playing one at an open mic night and the sound was way beyond what I thought was possible for a smaller guitar. This guitar really shines when plugged into an amp or a PA system, and it sounds good by itself as well. I'd recommend this for anyone who does solo gigs or performs at open mic nights. It's also great for students who want something of higher quality.

Great playing little guitar


Awesome sound quality and playability, just like you would expect from a Martin. Neck feels great and the body is super durable. Great for traveling. I bought one of these for my daughter because she was doing a lot of flying back and forth from Chicago. Guitar held up great. Comes with a nice gig bag too.
