I have this guitar and I have to say it was very convenient during my travels in the U.K, Australia and New Zealand. Airlines accept it as carry on luggage and the "gig bag" has enough room to throw in things you might want as carry on anyways. (i.e.: Book, Ipod, camera, change of clothes, meds, etc.) If you are going to travel for a while staying in hostels (as in dorms not hotels) and campgrounds, and want to be able to practice, this is exactly what this guitar was designed for. It sounds especially nice when playing finger picking styles. The only limitations are that the low strings sound pretty shallow when played hard and it is very hard to play unless standing up using the strap. (Because you can't just rest it on your thigh like a normal guitar). Also, customs officials will ALWAYS ask you what it is?
C.F Martin & Co – also known as Martin Guitars - have been creating the finest instruments in the world since 1833. They are highly regarded for manufacturing steel-string acoustic guitars and flat top guitars. They also previously made mandolins, ukuleles, electric guitars and basses. You can buy acoustic guitar strings online, but have you bought Martin before? They are among the best - the Martin SP® LIFESPAN™ line uses an industry leading core wire to hold tunings better. If you look for a semi acoustic guitar online, an acoustic guitar online, or a beginner’s guitar online, Martin offers high quality instruments.
