Martin LX1E Little Martin Electro Acoustic
Equipped with a discreet Fishman Sonitone preamp, the Martin LX1E Little Martin provides basic sound adjustments for both live and rehearsal settings. Placed just within the soundhole, you can easily alter your amplified tone precisely and quickly. The Fishman Sonitone preamp is versatile and responsive, featuring rotary controls for tone and volume. With this, players can shape their sound by simply plugging in to an amplifier or PA system, perfect for the performing musicians.
The Martin LX1E features a body crafted from mahogany High Pressure Laminate offering players a bold yet well-balanced sound blended with a wood-like appearance. In addition, its HPL body produces a unique tone that accommodates for a wide range of genres and playing styles. HPL is an engineered material, designed specifically to make guitars extremely durable and resistant to humidity. Topped with solid sitka spruce, the Martin LX1E yields a broad dynamic range, with an articulate and responsive sound.
This Martin's neck is made from a smooth, hand rubbed rust birch laminate, and it is paired with a certified richlite fingerboard. Its neck offers a smooth playing experience, whilst its fingerboard simulates the sonically pleasing nature of ebony, adding sustain a plenty of bite to the overall sound. Constructed from recycled paper and phenolic resin, Richlite has quickly become popular with many guitar manufacturers as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fingerboard woods, due to its fantastic playability.
