Why We Love This Product!

The Martin You Can Take Anywhere! Really!

This nylon string BackPacker Classical guitar has a surprisingly rich and loud tone, due primarily to the combination of a lightly braced, solid tonewood top with a solid mahogany neck, back and sides. A padded nylon carrying bag is included with each guitar.

Fantastic travel guitar

Written by J Donald from New York Metro Area

Music Background: Devoted amateur musician, guitarist
Pros: Light, well-built, pleasant-sounding instrument that's great for practicing on the road. Fits in an overhead bin and doesn't sacrifice build quality.

Has its own timbre that sounds a bit like a lute. Would stand out in an ensemble of nylon string guitars (can't wait to try recording with this!)

Cons: not a full-scale instrument. This means some adjustment when ... read more [+]switching back to a 'normal' 25.5" scale instrument.

Cannot take hard-tension strings (this may not matter to you)

The bridge is not formed as well as it could be - the rounded shape can make it prone to buzzes. I recommend replacing it with a properly formed one (one that is flat on the front side). A cheap, easy fix. GraphTec makes a good one out of synthetic bone-like material called "TUSQ". close [-]

Cheryl... Around here, none of us wear power ties, and power lunches are few and far between. But when the Power Rangers are unavailable, and PowerBall just isn't bringing the money home like you hoped it would, it's great to remember that the powerful store is here for all your power adapter needs!
