Overview

While the LX1E Little Martin is their smallest guitar, it is very big on tone, quality and versatility. The LX1E is an acoustic-electric model constructed of a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides, and finished of with a warm satin finish. It’s ideal for travel, student practice or for just playing around the house or campfire. And if you want to take things to another level volume wise, the LX1E comes with the well-regarded Fishman Isys T preamp system which offers you a volume, tone shaping and phase control with low-profile knobs.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about X Series LX1E Little Martin Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is sweet the build quality is amazing. I was looking for a short scale guitar to compliment my other guitars. played the baby Taylor which to me didn't sound full enough, then the MartinLX1 which had a much warmer and a little deeper tone after a few trips to Guitar Center in Arlington heights Illinois and playing more guitars My heart settled on the LX1, since I perform onstage and also at small gatherings , Adam at the Arlington Heights store recommended the LX1E acoustic electric. once plugged in I was blown away by the rich fullness and that great martin sound don't get me wrong unplugged it sounds rich and clear like it's big brothers. but when plugged into an amp the on board Fishman really produces an awesome sound , everyone who hears this little gem cannot believe the rich clear sound produced by this little Martin when plugged in Thanks again to Adam and the Arlington Heights Illinois Guitar Center Staff . Like Adam stated You don't find the guitar, the Guitar finds You . would highly recommend this little beauty

          Comments about X Series LX1E Little Martin Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This guitar sounds and feels solid. Has good range for a smaller guitar. Doesn't sound tinny. I also have a Baby Taylor BT2 and the Martin is a better guitar. The Taylor is a large ukulele and the Little Martin plays like a real guitar. I changed the strings to Elixirs and sanded down the saddle.

            Comments about X Series LX1E Little Martin Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Previous experience with acoustics = Epiphone dreadnought-style
            Also own = Fender, Epi, and Ibanez electrics

            The Martin's dimunitive size might trigger Freudian-esque responses from onlookers, but it punches above its weight. It's an acoustic you can play without having to spoon it, which describes almost precisely the feel of the Epi dreadnought I traded.

            If the Martin has a weakness, its short scale seems to require a little more pressure from the fret hand than larger guitars. But I expect most players will realize that going in.

            And it sounds as rich as its larger cousins, not like a ukelele.

            It does use a 9V battery.
