      Comments about X Series LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar Regular:

      Surprisingly playable right out of the box! A very friendly small guitar.
      The Martin "Light" strings are just right for the action.
      I could use some pointers about how to care for the spruce top, which is totally unfinished. Could/should I wax it?
      This one's made in Mexico, and they know their guitars there!
      I'm a happy camper.

      Comments about X Series LX1 Little Martin Acoustic Guitar Regular:

      I like the look of a clean face without a pick guard but with no finish on the soundboard I am already wearing away the sound board. I usually use a medium pick ...the orange one but started using a light to save FACE ...HA. Total failure. I bought some clear pick guards and so far they will not stick to a plain wood spruce surface. I am a instrument repairer and I am working on the problem.

          You can play this little guitar in your recliner. Not much deep bass, but that's what a Dreadnought is for. Really enjoyable, fun, and convient to play. Folks at Musician's Friend were great to deal with, and shipping was very fast.

          This guitar has surprisingly great sound, better sound than a lot of full size guitars, very well made, and it's very nice looking. You can't go wrong with the price for a Martin, the LX1 is the Honda Civic of guitars. Rob

            I have been playing guitar (mostly bass) for about 49 years and have had a lot of guitars during that time. This little guitar is the right size for my apartment for practice and has a full sized sound that is very rich. I am a happy camper and saved a roll of money too.

              For the price this can not be beat, sure it doesn't sound like my D55 Guild or D15 Custom Martin but sounds awesome and plays easy and looks great.

                This is a great little guitar. Good action. Good sound. All around great. I was initially surprised that the back and sides of the sound box are man-made material, not wood. This, however, does not seem to affect the sound or feel at all.....

                I love this great, little guitar.

                  This is the 2nd "little" guitar I bought, and don't intend to buy any other!
                  It's a small guitar with a BIG sound!
