6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

  • Padded gig bag included
  • HPL mahogany body offers superb tone
  • Solid Sitka spruce top for broad dynamic range
  • Subtle Fishman Sonitone preamp for tonal shaping

Loaded With Fishman Sonitone Preamp

Equipped with a discreet Fishman Sonitone preamp, the Martin LX1E Little Martin provides basic sound adjustments for both live and rehearsal settings. Placed just within the soundhole, you can easily alter your amplified tone precisely and quickly. The Fishman Sonitone preamp is versatile and responsive, featuring rotary controls for tone and volume. With this, players can shape their sound by simply plugging in to an amplifier or PA system, perfect for the performing musicians.

Mahogany High Pressure Laminate Body

The Martin LX1E features a body crafted from mahogany High Pressure Laminate offering players a bold yet well-balanced sound blended with a wood-like appearance. In addition, its HPL body produces a unique tone that accommodates for a wide range of genres and playing styles. HPL is an engineered material, designed specifically to make guitars extremely durable and resistant to humidity. Topped with solid sitka spruce, the Martin LX1E yields a broad dynamic range, with an articulate and responsive sound.

Rust Birch Laminate Neck and Certified Richlite Fingerboard

This Martin's neck is made from a smooth, hand rubbed rust birch laminate, and it is paired with a certified richlite fingerboard. Its neck offers a smooth playing experience, whilst its fingerboard simulates the sonically pleasing nature of ebony, adding sustain a plenty of bite to the overall sound. Constructed from recycled paper and phenolic resin, Richlite has quickly become popular with many guitar manufacturers as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fingerboard woods, due to its fantastic playability.
