  • Tremendous first guitar, Guitar Center is 5 stars as well

    As reviewed by Captive Socks on 8/27/2013

    First time guitar player who is retirement age. Self-instructing on guitar. Absolutely thrilled with this instrument. The size is perfect. It creates plenty of sound and is physically manageable. Astonished by how well it maintains its tuning. I wanted an instrument that sounded rich but not too bright, and one that would be forgiving enough to support a newbie. I didn't want to spend a great deal of effort maintaining it. I also didn't want to spend $500 on a small Taylor when I was doing this on a whim. LX1 fit my requirements. Did research online then went to a Guitar Center store to put my hands and ears on the instruments. I was extremely impressed by the person at the guitar center who helped me. He took lots of time, was patient, and very helpful. Based on how I was treated on my initial visit, I will always go to the Guitar Center first for what I now suspect will be many years of guitar business.

  • Sweet Little Guitar

    As reviewed by Paul Reh on 1/25/2013

    Great little guitar with the quality of a Martin. It is a good traveling guitar as it fit easily into the overhead compartment of the commercial jet. The soft bag that comes with it provided ample protection. It provided me with hours of entertainment while visiting my wife's family! It has the nice distinctive Martin low E bass sound and overall good quality sound useable up to fret 12 (15 if you want to work at it) The finish is good and the neck is especially smooth. The frets are a reasonable size to easily play chords. It sits in my family room and is a nice light lap companion that I reach for whenever I am half watching tv. My regular Breedlove acoustic now seems bulky and heavy for anything but serious practice time. I expect years of pleasure from this baby Martin. Well worth the price.

  • Good, if you like the idea of an oversized ukelele

    As reviewed by Cody Frye on 8/15/2012

    What I will say is this litle guitar is built surprisingly well. Frets are clean, neck's straight, intonation's on, action is acceptable, tuners are GREAT, wood quality and overall construction is nice. The sound.....well, it's fairly small, to be honest. But, if you're buying such a small guitar expecting a full range of tones, you're SOL here. Although it can get fairly loud while strumming with a pick (I'd say about 6 or 7 out of 10...10 being a full-sized dreadnought) it always maintains a ukelele-like tone and it's fairly quiet while picking. In other words, don't expect this guitar to ring out and resonate like a full sized acoustic because it never will. As for claiming to be 3/4 the size of a regular guitar, I'd say no. When you consider the body, it's maybe 60% the size at best...and that's pushing it. It's enjoyable to play, it stays in tune, it's built to last a while, and it looks good. Those are the qualities you want to look for in a guitar. The tone is really in the ear of the beholder. Again, we're talking about mix of acoustic and ukelele, no matter how you cut it. Sot, the best thing to do, as always, is play one in your local guitar store before you buy.
