      Comments about X Series 2016 LX Koa Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

      I've owned my Little Martin for about 5 years now. I was looking for a small guitar to travel with, and I really tried to like the Martin Backpacker...it's a great concept but I just couldn't get past the tinny, toy-like sound it makes. The Little Martin is not that much bigger and I found it produces 80%-90% of the sound quality of my parlor-size guitar, so I bought it. The build quality is very high, it's a pleasure to look at, touch, hold and play. I quickly came to love the 3/4 scale neck - barre chords are easier for my smaller hands to play, and it's possible to reach that 4th fret with my pinkie. The light-gauge Elixir strings suit the guitar perfectly. Sound quality is very good - it doesn't have the booming bass notes or sparkling treble notes of a larger, more expensive instrument, but it produces a very warm, textured sound that is light years better than the Backpacker. I've taken the Little Martin on numerous backpacking trips and bicycle tours. The factory gig bag is very nice, but somewhat bulky and heavy for long-distance carrying, so I made a simple polar fleece cover for it and it fastens perfectly to the back of my pack with the pack's cinch-straps. The guitar has taken a few knocks along the way - including once being completely submersed in the Pacific ocean (long story) - but it has proven very durable and resistant to changing temperature, humidity etc. The guitar, capo, clip-on tuner and fleece cover add about 5 pounds to the load...totally worth it. When I'm bicycle touring the guitar fits neatly inside my Nomad trailer. I've flown with it a fair amount, too, and found it to be an easy carry-on item in its padded case. It fits in most overhead bins, and on crowded flights I've always been able to get a stewardess to stash it in the coat closet by the cockpit. Around the house I find myself reaching for the Little Martin at least as often as my larger guitars. Highly recommended.

            I received this Martin by shipment last night as a Father's Day gift from my wife. Beautiful Koa wood finish. No scratches or dents from shipping. The sound is only slightly less robust than a larger guitar but my goal for this one is portability. However, it does give a very rich sound and it is very easy to reach the end of the neck due to smaller size. The reduced depth relative to a Dreadnaught also makes it very comfortable to play in the recliner instead of having to sit on a stool or armless chair. Only one day in but so far, I love it!
