15% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

If you travel often and want to bring a 6-string companion along, few instruments fit the bill better than Little Martin series guitars! The LX1’s modified O-style body is about as comfortable as acoustic guitars get, sporting a solid spruce top and rosewood-pattern HPL back and sides to deliver luscious Martin tone in a luggage-bin sized package. FSC Certified Richlite is used for both the fingerboard and bridge — this composite material is all but impervious to changes in temperature and humidity, while still offering a sleek, smooth playing surface. On the road, in the practice room, or on the couch — the LX1 Little Martin is a parlor-sized workhorse of an acoustic guitarge are crafted from rosewood, and the neck is carved from natural colored Stratabond.

    Sustainable building materials

    One of the most appealing features of the Little Martin LX1 is how Martin designed it with materials that are simultaneously environmentally sustainable, durable, and more than capable of delivering traditional Martin acoustic tone! The bridge and fingerboard are made with FSC Richlite, a long-lasting composite material that offers old-school Martin tone but with space-age reliability. Richlite is totally unaffected by temperature and humidity changes, making it a perfect choice for musicians who travel often or live in challenging climates. In addition, the Rosewood HPL back and sides deliver a warm sound, and they're far less likely to dry out and crack compared to solid wood designs.

    What Martin Says...

    The Little Martin is big on tone, quality, and versatility and includes sustainable wood parts. New to the series, the LX1R features a solid spruce top for warmth and projection, paired with stylish rosewood pattern HPL. As the first model in its series with a pickguard, it also includes a laser-etched herringbone rosette and comes with a soft gig bag for easy transport so you can take your music anywhere. The Little Martin is ideal for travel but also makes a great student guitar.
