A mini Martin that belies how much tone and versatility it offers.

The Martin LX1E Little Martin acoustic-electric guitar brings impressive sound quality in a compact size. Martin designed the modified O-style body to be ideal for travel and smaller players, with a solid spruce top that produces the brand's signature bright, lively tone. The guitar's mahogany back and sides provide a balanced warmth to complement the crisp treble, crafted in an environmentally-friendly high-pressure laminate. Plug in to experience the versatility of the LX1E's Fishman Sonitone electronics, with easy-access volume and tone controls mounted discreetly inside the soundhole. The guitar comes complete with a padded gig bag, making it effortless to take the Martin LX1E anywhere you want to play.

Compact Size With Classic Martin Tone

You'll appreciate the portable size of the Little Martin LX1E, with its modified O-style body that's designed for travel and smaller players. The guitar still delivers impressive volume and projection thanks to its solid spruce top, which produces the bright, lively tone Martin is known for. The spruce top responds beautifully to your playing dynamics, with sweet, singing highs. Mahogany back and sides add a balanced warmth in an environmentally-friendly high-pressure laminate, while retaining the LX1E's lightweight carry-anywhere design. With its smaller size and narrower 1-11/16" nut width, the Little Martin feels comfortable to hold and play for long periods.

Plug in the Fishman Sonitone Electronics

The LX1E comes equipped with Fishman Sonitone electronics, featuring easy-access volume and tone controls mounted discretely inside the soundhole. Simply plug into an amp or PA system to amplify your sound, with the signature clarity of the undersaddle piezo pickup. The Sonitone preamp provides a natural acoustic tone when amplified, with a simple one-band EQ to shape your desired sound. The preamp is powered by an easy-to-change 9V battery. With the Fishman system, you can confidently plug in and perform anywhere with the impressive amplified tone of the Little Martin LX1E.

Made in Mexico With Martin Craftsmanship

Constructed in Martin's Mexico facility, the LX1E Little Martin upholds their reputation for quality workmanship and materials. It features a mortise and tenon neck joint for strength, along with Martin's non-scalloped "X" bracing pattern. Chrome enclosed tuning machines keep your guitar in tune through performances and practice sessions. With its impressive tone and versatility, the compact LX1E acoustic-electric embodies Martin's legacy in a travel-ready size.
