Built for portable durability . . . and great sound!

Don't let the diminutive size of the Martin Backpacker Acoustic Guitar fool you. A braced, solid tonewood top with a solid mahogany neck, back, and sides gives this cool little guitar a surprisingly big projection. Built to withstand the rigors of camping, hiking, and off-road traveling. Includes high-quality chrome-enclosed tuners. A unique bridge on the nylon-string version accepts either plain or ball-end classic strings. Weighs less than 2-1/2lb.

Includes gig bag.

  • No More Backaches

    As reviewed by Art Waardenburg on 11/14/2008

    This is a great guitar for anyone who travels via public transportation; no more bulky guitar cases. The tone resembles something akin to a Renaissance lute- like quality but sounds unique unto itself. Though it may seem awkward to play at first, especially if you're used to a full bodied instrument, this guitar is a great practice ax that you can bring anywhere and it weighs less than a textbook.

  • Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar

    As reviewed by Vince on 4/18/2009

    Great size to sit around at night and practice. It feels good and has a good sound for its size. The only problem I have is keeping it in tune. I have to tune almost every string after only a day or two of rest. I have a steel string version of this same model and it stays in tune with only fine adjustments. Not sure if this is just a difference between the steel and nylon strings or something else. But I love them both. They have allowed me to practice more often.

  • Guitar in Afghanistan

    As reviewed by Bobby Yarush on 9/26/2009

    Just recieved my Martin... and this a really nice practice guitar. I am in Afghanistan and I couldnt have asked for a cooler intrument for the conditions I am in. Compact size, classical sound... a great tote around instrument. There is a slight issue with staying in tune... but its a minor thing.
