Little Martin is the perfect guitar for a student. If you are just learning to play, this would be a great option, especially for young students with smaller hands. It will be easier to play since the fret spacing is slightly smaller. With the onboard electronics, the LX1RE would also make an excellent option for a beginner player because it is always fun to be able to plug in and play.”
