i bought this product online from guitar center in new jersey. i really like the fact that it is a smaller scale and it is easy to play with small hands. easy take along guitar with ample sound for its size, it did suprise me! i recently installed a barcus berry pickup in it and it just made it even better. excellent action and playablity right out of the box. perfect! i would definately suggest it to a friend as i already have!

The backpacker left hand guitar is a pretty good item for what you are paying for. I mean it;s very inexpensive and gets the work done fairly well for events like campfires and easy travel. after a while though the action on it will become terrible so i will suggest continuous care of the guitar which is the only reason I'm giving it 3 stars. Overall though i would so for light travel and outdoor small events this is the ideal guitar to use when you're not scared of it getting a little dirty.

Good for what it is

By Josh Patterson

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Martin Backpacker Nylon String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

Not bad for what it is. If you are expecting that trademark Martin sound, you are going to be a little dissapointed. But it is what it is. It's a backpacker guitar, just for messing around at a campfire. You don't get that bold bassy Martin sound, it's a thin body with a weird shape to it, and it reminds me more of a cheaper thin body Fender acoustic.

Not a bad idea

By Andrew

from Orange County, Ca

Comments about Martin Backpacker Nylon String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

Martin is known for it's legendary guitars, but I must say they didn't quite hit it with this one. I found this guitar impossible to play sitting down due to the awkward shape of the body. I get what they were "going for" but if your looking for a good travel guitar I would go with a LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar.

Martin Steel String Back Packer

By Mike Mohler

from TX

Comments about Martin Backpacker Nylon String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

I travel for business and decided that a travel guitar would be useful to fill the "dead time" in the hotel. This guitar is very light and comes with a nice case. It is a little larger than I wanted, but the sound is better than the other travel guitar I tried out-a Johnson traveler. The Martin will not as good as a full size guitar, but for the portability, I can live with that. Since I am left-handed, my choice for inexpensive travel guitars was limited. I've been happy with my Martin Backpacker.

Martin Steel String Backpacker

By Ryan Grove

from Battle Creek, MI

Comments about Martin Backpacker Nylon String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar is a very nice portable guitar. I don't know if I would take it backpacking but if you wanted something more compact to take somewhere this is your guitar. For the size and shape it has a very good sound. It is pretty easy to play also but I would still go with a regular acoustic guitar but it is very nice for what is was made for.

Not bad

By Ray

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Martin Backpacker Nylon String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

The guitar itself isn't really made for playing but as most know just for travel and it does a job of that. Its really compact so you can bring it almost anywhere and it doesn't sound half bad really. Sure its no sound of a real acoustic but it will get the job done when practicing is needed to be done whilst on a trip

  • Stays In Tune

Cons

  • Limited Scale
  • Top Heavy

Best Uses

  • Jamming
  • Practicing

Comments about Martin Backpacker Nylon String Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

Great guitar for the price. Sound is great for how small it is. My only real complaint is the weight distribution of the setup. Very top heavy and you have to wear a strap to play with. Quiet enough for in home practice and can be loud for playing outside or with friends. Get a lot of strange looks on the guitar but always impressed with the sound and action. Going on 2 years with this bad boy, no intentions on selling it. Very easy to travel with and stays in tune fairly well. Highly recommend
