What was it that sparked my interest in travel guitars? I’m traveling on beach vacation in a couple weeks and I am facing a tough decision. Should I lug my massive full-sized guitar all the way across the ocean or just leave it at home and not have anything?
Bigger is always better, right? When it comes to guitars, especially ones like what you’ll find in the Little Martin series, this oft-repeated moniker isn’t necessarily true.
This style of guitar, often referred to as a “travel guitar” or a “parlor guitar“, won’t replace your full-size guitar any time soon, but it does have its advantages. Best of all, if you choose your Little Martin wisely, you don’t really have to trade sound for size.
