Martin Steel String Backpacker Guitar

Code: GBPC
Instrument Setup Included more info

For their size, both the original steel-string style and the nylon string classical model have a surprisingly rich and loud tone, due primarily to the combination of a lightly braced solid tonewood top with a select tonewood neck, back and sides. With padded gig bag. Supplied with our Martin 'Heritage Centre' set-up and the full Martin Guitars UK Warranty and Guarantee.
