Martin LXME Little Martin Acoustic Electric Guitar Review :: Martin Guitar Reviews


the plugged in tone is crystal clear, doesn't sound mini, it sounds like a crisp, regular sized guitar

Description
Mini Q electronics by Fishman deliver big sound from a small body. Fishman mini Q system is an under saddle piezo with the pre-amp battery compartment mounted on the side just under the strap button, there's tone and volume controls. The shape is nice and curvy and the construction is rock solid. It even has an adjustable neck which you can tweak just inside the soundhole. Modified 0-14 Martin body features a spruce-pattern HPL top with "1 style" Sitka spruce bracing, Micarta fretboard and bridge, 23" scale, Stratabond modified low oval neck, and Martin's patented neck mortise. Gotoh nickel-plated tuners and C.F. Martin script logo adorn the headstock. Includes Martin gig bag. The Martin LXME Little Martin Acoustic-Electric Guitar is the perfect choice for travel, practice, and beginning students.

Sound of Little Martin LXME Acoustic Electric Guitar

  • good tone accoustically;
  • balanced sound, thick, bright, and resonant;
  • HPL top and tiny body project a nice middly sound;
  • clean sound with noiseless high output, rolling back the treble on the limited tone control gets rid of any hiss;
  • the middly sound might be good for recording strummed stuff;
  • a thick, darker tone than the Taylor and your forearm and chest can just feel the resonance come out of this thing;
  • the plugged in tone is crystal clear, doesn't sound mini, it sounds like a crisp, regular sized guitar;
