Easy to transport
This is a guitar that you can take anywhere. Martin have ensured that the Steel String Backpacker is completely tailored to the travelling musician. The guitar is extremely light, making it tremendously easy to carry the instrument about on your person. A narrow, compact construction allows the guitar to fit into even the smallest of spaces. This is the guitar you need if you're looking for amazing sound while you're on the move.
Powerful tonal range
Experience beautiful, wide-reaching sound. The Backpacker is made from a selection of woods to deliver warm, varied tones in your playing. You'll enjoy superb depth thanks to solid tonewood used for the guitar's back and body. Your high-end notes will sound fantastically sharp and bright courtesy of a solid spruce top. Even at high pitches, your playing will be defined and clear.
Play with freedom
Never be restricted. You can play all the way to the top of the scale without difficulty, as the Backpacker's neck joins the body at the top 15th fret. This means you've got total access to every inch of the fretboard. You'll never suffer the awkwardness of having to reach over a bulky neck joint to play at the high-end. The peak of playability.
