Martin LX1E Electro Acoustic Guitar NEW IN!

Part of the little Martin series.

While the Little Martin is our smallest guitar, it is very big on tone, quality and versatility. The LX1 model features a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany high-pressure laminate HPL back and sides. It’s ideal for travel, student practice or for just playing around the house or campfire. This model includes sustainable wood certified parts.

Equipped with a Fishman Sonitone preamp, this model is ready for live performances and recordings. With this, you are able to adjust your amplified tone effortlessly and precisely. Thanks to the preamp, you are provided with flexibility and a unique tone that accommodates a wide range of genres and playing styles, as you can shape your sound by simply plugging into an amplifier or PA system.

It’s not just the preamp that works to produce such stunning tones. A lot of the tones are produced by the guitar’s wooden construction. The mahogany body delivers a bold yet well-balanced sound, which also provides flexibility. Its sitka spruce top yields a broad dynamic range, with an articulate and responsive sound.

Comfortable playing

The combination of the birch laminate neck and its richlite fingerboard provides the ultimate playing experience. Both offer a smooth base, which lets your hand glide effortlessly between the frets. The fretboard also provides the sonically pleasing nature of ebony, adding sustain and plenty of bite. Constructed from recycled paper and phenolic resin, richlite has quickly become popular with many guitar manufacturers as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fingerboard woods, due to its fantastic playability.

Effortless transport

Alongside your guitar, you receive a padded gig bag. This offers effortless transportation, as it is designed with a cushioned carrying handle that takes the weight of your guitar off you when you’re in transit. Its padded interior protects your instrument from damage, which ensures the LX1E will always look brand new while you perform. The gig bag also features an exterior pocket where you can also store all of your extra accessories that you will need while on the road.
