  • Great for practice and travel

    As reviewed by Jason on 3/20/2009

    This guitar is just an awesome little instrument. It is durable, compact, versatile and sounds fairly decent. Keep in mind that it is not a full size guitar, so you do sacrifice a little volume and tone. It is surprisingly responsive in the low and high notes, and it has been passable for plugging in during rehearsals. I have not used it for a live performance yet, but I am not opposed to it with my LR Baggs external pre-amp. It is not a full size, high end Martin, so do not expect that tone, but it is my favorite guitar to walk around the house with and practice all day. Maybe it's because the material seems indestructible and my 2 year old can't even scratch it or just because it's so small that I can put it anywhere, but I never let go of this thing. I think my daughter will be able to learn on it when she gets bigger, and I am sure I could do a lot worse for her entry level guitar. Give it a shot if you travel or just for fun. You will enjoy it if you have the right expectations.

  • Love it

    As reviewed by SJ on 2/19/2010

    I compared it to Baby Taylor & many other 3/4 bodies. I like the sound alone, but really like it with the AMP. For my needs it perfect, because I can take it on the road and not worry quite as much about temperature changes as I would with non laminates.

  • Very impressed with the sound

    As reviewed by Brian Walach on 4/19/2014

    I owned the Baby Taylor before this and ended up selling it to my uncle who wanted my younger cousins to learn. It just sounded too bright to me and didn't have nearly enough tone in the bass for the style of music I play. Or in general. The Martin LXME is really a unique instrument. I played everything at this size in the store, knowing that I probably was going to buy this or the LX1E. I kept playing both and went back and forth and decided I thought this sounded a little more bassy to me and I liked that. At this point it's a solid 4/5 for me. When you plug it in it sounds even better. I have a Taylor 210ce and it has that level of sound coming out of it. I am beyond impressed and it has been exactly what I'm looking for - a travel guitar that isn't just super bright, but has the range to balance it out. This does it for me. I had it shipped to the house and it came in great shape and pretty quickly. I ordered on a Sat and it came Tues/Thurs, can't remember which.
