C F Martin LX1E X Series Acoustic Guitar Solid Spruce Top

What We Think

The Martin LX1E is one of Martin’s smallest acoustic guitars however still has a big, bold tone! This fantastic instrument features a solid sitka spruce top for a rich, warm tone, high pressure laminate mahogany back and sides so the guitar is durable, and of course a small travel size body making it the ideal option for buskers and people on the go! The Martin LX1E also has on board the ‘Fishman Sonitone’ pre amp system therefore it could potentially even be a gigging guitar! A small, fun guitar to play with the precision and build quality of C F Martin.

This Mini Martin guitar comes in a small size but hits with huge tone. Its sitka spruce wood offers surprisingly loud volumes which would fool anyone who couldn’t  see the guitar. Non scalloped bracing also offers a nice amount of sustain which you would expect from full bodied dreadnoughts.  It is perfect for the travelling musician or even for someone whom gigs every night it has that much clarity and richness. I would recommend anyone to have a go on this if you haven’t already.

The Martin LX1E Little Martin Electro-Acoustic Guitar features a solid Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides, and a warm satin finish. Despite being Martin's smallest guitar, the LX1E is very big on tone, quality and versatility. It's size makes it ideal for travel, student practice or for just playing around the house or campfire. The Martin LX1E is fitted with the Fishman Sonitone, which is a subtle soundhole mounted preamp with volume and tone control options for tweaking your amplified sound.


Founded by C. F. Martin Snr. in 1833, began applying his furniture making skills to the crafting of acoustic guitars. Martin Guitars quickly established an enviable reputation for quality and tone. In many ways, the illustrious history of Martin Guitars is the history of the acoustic guitar as we know it today. The Dreadnought is the most popular and copied shape of acoustic guitar of all time, named after a British battleship. The Dreadnought has become the staple core of acoustic guitars.

Martin's instruments have been played by everyone from Elvis Presley to Coldplay. Their designs past and present have had a massive influence on virtually every other acoustic guitar maker in existence. Martin's current range of more than 120 instruments represents the very best in 21st century cutting edge manufacturing techniques, while retaining immaculate craftsmanship and the warmth and appeal of vintage instruments.
