The Martin X Series LX1E Little Martin Acoustic-Electric Guitar is travel-sized and made from sustainable materials to deliver legendary Martin tone wherever your music takes you. The LX1E features a solid spruce top and mahogany-patterned high-pressure laminate back and sides, along with a hand-rubbed satin finish for a sleek look and feel.

Sustainable Parts for Reliable Tone

The LX1E is constructed using FSC-certified Richlite, an impervious composite material, for the fingerboard and bridge. Unaffected by temperature and humidity changes, the Richlite components provide a smooth playing surface for years of reliable performance. The mahogany-patterned back and sides also resist warping and cracking for consistent tone.

Onboard Electronics for Amplified Sound

With the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, the LX1E delivers its signature Martin sound through any amplifier or PA system. The discreet under-saddle transducer accurately captures the guitar's full tonal range. Volume and tone controls are mounted within easy reach inside the soundhole for quick adjustments on the fly.

A Travel-Friendly Companion

Despite its small size, the LX1E produces the same lush, resonant tone that Martin guitars are known for. A modified low oval neck with a tapered profile offers comfortable playability for musicians of all hand sizes.

Low-Maintenance and Highly Playable

The LX1E's hand-rubbed satin finish protects the solid wood top while keeping the overall look understated and natural. The finish requires no polishing and is highly resistant to scratches and wear. Combined with the durable Richlite components, the LX1E has minimal maintenance needs so you can focus on making music.
