OVERVIEW

Built for portable durability . . . and great sound.

Backpacker
Martin's Backpacker guitars are fully playable, compact travel guitars designed to meet the needs of musicians on the run.
With a total weight of 2.5 pounds, the Backpacker guitar is lightweight and easy to carry. Ruggedly built to withstand the rigors of outdoor situations like camping, hiking and summer music festivals, you really can take one anywhere. For their size, both the original steel-string Backpacker and the newer nylon-string classical Backpacker have surprisingly rich and loud tone. Such tone is due primarily to the combination of a lightly braced solid soundboard with a solid mahogany neck, back and sides. Tuning machines on both models are the high quality chrome enclosed variety. The unique bridge on the classical model accepts either plain end or ball end classic strings. Each Backpacker guitar comes equipped with a Martin woven strap. The high quality nylon carrying bag, complete with red embroidered "C.F. Martin" logo, fits neatly in the overhead compartment onboard most airlines.

Comments about Martin Steel-String Backpacker Acoustic Guitar:

Very nice playing guitar. Don't expect the sound of a full-sized or dreadnaught. Good tone however for its minimal body size. The body size is both a plus and a minus. It's great for travel (its obvious intent). The body size and shape makes it slightly awkward to hold if you do not use a strap.
