Elegant, compact, and ready for the road
The LX1 Little Martin is built for impromptu jamming sessions, travelling, and magical gigs. It makes life on the road so much easier by alleviating the stress that larger instruments bring, allowing you to travel from gig to gig without wasting time lugging heavy gear around. Or even if you're just meeting up with friends, this guitar will ensure you're the life of the party.
An exquisitely crafted body
If you want a guitar that is portable without sacrificing any gorgeous tonal qualities, the LX1 Little Martin is perfect. Made from mahogany high pressure laminate, or 'HPL', the body of this guitar is superbly durable. It is climate resilient and can endure excessive playing and gigging whilst delivering exceptional tone that is balanced and clear. Mahogany delivers the kind of tone that will stop you in your tracks. Captivate your audience with a sound that you would expect from a larger guitar. You'll have resonance, warmth, and wonderful richness flowing from the strings - what more could you want in a travel guitar?
The Sitka spruce top then promises fantastic clarity that makes every note shine. Even with thick strumming or intricate arpeggiated chords, spruce delivers superbly crisp articulation. And if that's not enough, this glistening top wood ensures your sound is always swimming in a broad dynamic range.
Living up to Martin's reputation of innovation and superior craftmanship, the LX1 Little Martin Guitar has been expertly handmade. You can be sure that you'll be performing with an instrument that has been designed with exceptional attention to detail. From the elegant rosette to the hand rubbed finish, from the modified low oval neck to chrome machine heads, every single component is of the highest quality, ensuring you are granted a lifetime of thrilling, glorious, and simply perfect playing. And thanks to the padded gig bag included, you can be sure your prized guitar will be well protected on the road.
