Like its predecessors, this latest addition to the Martin line is built with the same Martin quality craftsmanship, with an emphasis on producing great sound in a smaller guitar. The Little Martin is durable and easy to play. It is the perfect 'pick up and play' guitar that lets you jam at home or on the road and is the perfect choice for students. In a nutshell, the Little Martin is comfortable to play (despite it's slightly smaller size), tonally viable, affordably priced, environmentally responsible and compact - making it THE perfect choice for travel, practice or students! The Little Martin combines a modified 0-14 fret tenor Martin shape with a 23 inch scale length. The one panel back and sides are crafted from Mahogany Pattern HPL and the top is cut from Spruce Pattern HPL making the Little Martin amazingly friendly in just about any climate. In fact, the Little Martin has been atop the summit of Denali and several additional challenging environments and all reports are that it performed amazingly well! Your Little Martin comes with a padded gig bag made of a tough ballistic cloth exterior, plush interior, backpack straps and a front zipper compartment.
