Martin's LX1RE is an all-new Little Martin with a bold, versatile tone and high-quality Martin feel, with a few nice new aesthetic touches as well. The LX1RE has a 3/4 size Modified 0-14 Fret body with a Sitka spruce top and High Pressure Laminate back/sides. Despite its small size, it has a lively sound with plenty of sustain. It's also a blast to play, with a modified low oval neck shape, standard taper, and 23" scale length. It also has a few nice visual appointments, such as a laser-etched herringbone rosette, plus a pickguard, both of which haven't been seen before on Little Martins. And thanks to Fishman Sonitone electronics, you get quality, well-balanced acoustic-electric tone.
