Martin LX1E Little Martin

The Martin LX1E, affectionately known as the "Little Martin", is a charming travel-sized guitar that gives you all the woody, bassy tone of a good Martin in a small body, short-scale-length variant. The Little Martin is constructed like its full-sized siblings with a solid spruce top and rosewood fretboard, the LX1E Little Martin projects like a good acoustic guitar should. Martin throw in a Fishman Isys T pickup system and a gig bag so the LX1E will accompany you ably on your travels, or sit comfortably at home - ready to grab whenever inspiration strikes.

This guitar sounds great, the tone is warm with plenty of character and it feels comfortable to play. Dont let it's smaller size fool you, it has all the depth of sound you'd expect from a full size Martin.

Smooth, comfy neck

The neck is cut to the very comfortable-to-play modified low oval profile. It is made from rust stratabond, a dye impregnated wood veneer that has now been utilised by Martin for their guitar necks due to its excellent durability and strength. As an alternative to traditional rosewood or ebony, the fingerboard is made from richlite. This is a lightweight composite material that is held in high regard due to its incredible strength, which adds to the integrity of the neck. The neck has a generous 23” scale length, which is home to 20 very playable frets. The fingerboard width at the nut is 1-11/16” extending to 2-1/6” at the 12th fret, giving a very comfortable playing surface.

Fishman Pickup

Fishman’s Isys Onboard Preamp Systems are dedicated to providing maximum value in a small footprint. Available in three models, these preamp systems feature Volume, Tone shaping, and Phase controls; a pre-wired Fishman Sonicore pickup and low profile control knobs. The Tone control can be attenuated to help deliver a thicker or punchier sound. You can also drop out the midrange when finger-picking and add more depth for times when you want to strum hard. The phase control can be used to improve bass response at low volume and suppress feedback at high volume.
