Dont let the diminutive size of the Martin Backpacker Acoustic Guitar fool you. A braced, solid tonewood top with a solid mahogany neck, back, and sides gives this cool little guitar a surprisingly big projection. Built to withstand the rigors of camping, hiking, and off road traveling. Includes high-quality chrome enclosed tuners. A unique bridge on the nylon string version accepts either plain or ball end classic strings. Weighs less than 2-1/2 lbs. Built for portable durability . . . and great sound!
