Weighs less than 2-1/2lb. Includes a Martin woven strap and gig bag ($29 value), and carries a 1-year limited warranty.

    Comments about Martin Nylon String Backpacker Left:

    I like this guitar a lot for practicing and traveling. It's durable and the sound is pretty surprising for the size.
    It does stay in tune pretty well and the QC is up to par with Martin's brand name. I like the nylon strings much more than the steel strings BP which I used to have few years back. This guitar has 15/16 width at the nut which gives you a real classical guitar feel. I already know that the only efficient way of holding this instrument is with the included strap. The tuning machines are staying in tune pretty well and you can actually feel that the the whole design and engineering of this concept was very thoughtful.
    Only thing I wish is that Martin would include a better gig bag. Maybe a hybrid case with a foam etc. The BP can be damaged easily(tuning pegs) if you drop this least it has a compartment.

    The guitar is nice. So it seems you guys really got hammered up there. The weather is terrible here but nothing as I've heard compares to the upper mid-west. Just sitting here waiting for more cold rain and snow. This really sucks. The guitar is well worth the price. It's nice. Stay warm and safe. Pace yourselves. Tis the will of Landreu. Later. Love you folks. xoxoxo I'd buy It.
