The ultimate travel guitar!
Whether you intend to go camping, sit around a bonfire at the beach, or simply rock out on your front porch, the Martin Backpacker steel-string acoustic guitar will come in handy. The petite guitar is the perfect size for travel. Aptly named the Backpacker, this little instrument is slim enough to fit in a backpack, and at about 2.5 pounds, is light enough to carry around without weighing you down.
High Martin Standards
Instruments made by The Martin Guitar Company are known for their quality materials and construction, and the Backpacker reflects the company’s high standards for craftsmanship. You won’t get laminated tops or sides on this wee-sized guitar. It doesn’t have a fancy pickguard or rosette detailing, but that’s okay. The six-string acoustic guitar looks good the way it is, without any extra bells and whistles, and the overall shape of the instrument makes it interesting.
Like many other guitars by Martin, the Backpacker guitar boasts a surprisingly rich, loud tone, making it a good choice for solo practice, accompaniment with vocals, or any impromptu performance. An especially nice feature of the Backpacker is its full-size fretboard, which makes it easy to go from the little Backpacker to any other guitar without feeling awkward. When you’re done playing, slip the Backpacker into its padded black nylon carrying bag (included) for safe keeping.
Take on Any Terrain
Martin’s steel-string Backpacker is quite rugged, despite its unique appearance and compact form factor. Designed to withstand the rigors of outdoor use and travel, the lightweight Backpacker is ideal for any guitarist in need of a good quality, modestly priced guitar that can be played comfortably in any environment. Don’t expose your best, most expensive guitar to dirt, moisture, or any other harsh elements; do it with the Backpacker!
