What we say:

At A Glance:

The LX1E Little Martin delivers a guitar that's small in size but not small in tone. Acclaimed guitar makers Martin haven't compromised on quality construction and materials, resulting in a robust yet high quality instrument that's ideal for a range of situations; whether taking it out on the road, sitting round the house or campfire, or even for the studying musician who needs something a little smaller to get their hands around.

Features We Love:

Travel Size

With its smaller-than-average body and short 23" scale length, the LX1E takes up less real estate in the car, tour bus or bedroom, and allows for a more comfortable experience for young musicians and new students alike.


The LX1E sports High Pressure Laminate Back & Sides, providing a reliable and robust construction that stands up to the rigors of the road, paired with a solid Sitka Spruce Top to deliver great tone and superb projection for a guitar this size.


More than just a kids guitar or a campfire guitar, the LX1E features the Fishman Sonitone acoustic pickup, letting you amp up for bigger live situations and making it a great choice for the recording musician too.


  • Small body size is great for travelling
  • Short scale is extremely comfortable for smaller and younger musicians
  • No-compromises construction delivers reliability without sacrificing quality and tone
  • Comes complete with padded gig bag for portability and protection

Other Things To Consider:

  • This is primarily a travel-sized guitar, so if you're looking for something with a bigger body or bigger sound, why not check out other Dreadnought or Jumbo style guitars, including many in the Martin Guitar range.

Great travel guitar..set up brilliant

Alan T. - 29/4/2021

Love this guitar, for the size it sound incredible and the plug in sounds amazing. The tone and volume adjustments are neatly inside the guitar which looks so much nicer than other guitars.

Its exactly the right guitar for me as a beginner. It has an excellant sound and keeps its tune well. I chose this size as i have limited space but it dosent comprimise on its tone.

Had my Dad check the item over as I don't have a clue about guitars as this is a gift for my son, he said it had a great sound for a small guitar, he was pleasantly surprised :)

Kerry L. - 9/12/2020

Super small "travel" guitar that could be used on stage as well. Excellent sound, considering the body size.

Small guitar with an amazing sound, almost like a full-size one it is unbelievable! The entire guitar looks and feels so high-quality and well-made, and playing it is a joy.

Laura M. - 17/6/2020

I have a Taylor guitar which is great, but I wanted something easier to travel with, so I opted for the little Martin.

Peter S. - 7/5/2018

I have a Taylor guitar and was looking for a travel guitar and chose the Mini Martin LX1E.

Ray B. - 15/2/2018

Awesome guitar, my new favourite.

Gary B. - 15/2/2018

Martin LX1E - Like all Martin guitars, the build quality is second to none. The sound is surprisingly good for a smaller size acoustic. I've got nothing negative to say about it.

P.H. - 21/7/2015
