    Comments about X Series LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

    I played this guitar and the Baby Taylor at GC and liked this one, although they are both great instruments, just slightly different tones, but almost identical twins. Picked it up as I wanted something to travel with. I found the strings a little heavy for a parlor guitar and switched out the #13 supplied set into 11.5 Martin Silk & Steels and it has greatly improved the playability. I have a Martin Dreadnought and the sound comparison isn't close, but was never designed to be and I'm happy with what I'm getting from such a small bodied package. Cosmetics are good, quality seems typical good Martin build, and the gig bag was a nice inclusion.

      Comments about X Series LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

      The only reason I did not give it five stars was because of the poor factory set up. I own three Martins and in all three the playability was awful from the factory. I wish their Quality control was better. Other than that it's a nice piece.

          Due to it's small size it's great for practicing while traveling and nothing more. If you're expecting more, I recommend you get the Dreadnought Junior instead.

            Comments about X Series LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar:

            My family goes camping regularly with groups from my child's school and we often spend time singing and jamming around the campfire. I wanted to have a durable guitar that could withstand the elements and also that I could bring with me on airplanes so I could practice when away from home. This little Martin fit the bill perfectly.

            I tried all the travel guitars that GC had in stock in several of their stores and the Martin LX1 has the best tone of all of them. I like it better than the Baby Taylors that I played, which were much brighter and thinner sounding than the Martin. My only beef with the Martin is that the action is somewhat high and the string gauge is too heavy. That said, I still love playing it! I will be bringing the guitar to my luthier in the coming weeks to take care of those issues.
