Comments about Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar:

This is the perfect guitar to take camping when we go to music festivals. It's a typical nylon string guitar as it takes the strings a while to become consistent when new. It's really fun to play and has a great sound for it's size and price.

Be cautious!

By 

from clifton park, ny

Comments about Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar:

I read the other reviews and thought this could be a good guitar for me, as I travel for work quite a bit. I really haven't been too pleased. The sound isn't great and its very awkward to hold. Most importantly it get's out of tune very easily and often. When I go away for trips and want to play guitar I just bring my full size one. Save your money!

Guitar in Afghanistan

By 

from Bagram, Afghanistan

Comments about Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar:

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.

Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar

By 

from Hickory, NC

Comments about Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar:

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.

No More Backaches

By 

from Maryland

Comments about Martin Nylon String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar:

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.
