Martin is a name synonymous with high quality guitar production. Now, Martin have produced a small electro acoustic that left handed players can enjoy. With top quality materials and electrics, the Martin LX1EL Little Martin Left Handed Electro Acoustic Guitar is a real gem.

As you would expect from a Martin, some of the best tonewood available has been used in the construction of the LX1EL's body. A solid sitka spruce top has been combined with mahogany textured HPL back and sides that helps the LX1EL deliver a deep and rich tone despite its small size.

The top is completed with a hand rubbed natural finish whilst the back and sides have more of a textured finish. This is garnished with a black and white boltaron rosette complete with red fibre.

The neck of the Martin LX1EL is crafted from stratabond and houses the richlite fingerboard containing 20 frets in total. Atop the neck sits the Solid / LX Taper style headstock complete with chrome, small button machine heads.

Many manufacturers turn to the Fishman Sonitone pickup system for their electro-acoustics and Martin have chosen this too. The Fishman Sonitone gives you complete control over your tone, presence and volume and guarantee's faithful signal transfer of the LX1EL's sound to your choice of amplification.

The Martin LX1EL Little Martin Left Handed Electro Acoustic Guitar is a gorgeous guitar and you're going to want to make sure it stays that way. Martin have delivered here too and every LX1EL comes complete with a padded gig bag.

For a full sounding, smaller guitar for the left handed player, the LX1EL is a uniquely beautiful, dream of a guitar.

Posted on 25/03/2016 by This is an astonishing little guitar that, despite its small size, has now overtaken my old Washburn as my main working guitar. It's light, comfortable and very easy to play. Played acoustically, it's a surprisingly full and rounded sound with rich tones even at the lower end, which I wouldn't have expected from such a small body. The onboard electrics are good and straightforward and the onboard tuner does its job. Also having a guitalele meant that I wasn't too troubled by the small body - in fact, once you're used to it. Don't be put off by the use of HPL for the back and sides. It works just fine, both in terms of adding extra depth and volume, and in making the guitar more sturdy. It's a pleasure to play - and the case isn't bad, either!
