Default Sold: Backpacker Guitar

Sold to a cool CT'er so he can continue to woo his lady friend on the trail and make her fall even more madly in love with him.[:X]


This is an item for either the person that has everything, or the aspiring musician who loves to sing a few songs around the campfire.
For those of you who know their guitars, this is a "Martin". One of the finest guitar makers in the world, so you can be assured this is a well made piece constructed with top quality woods. (Brazilian Rosewood, etc.)
At only 2 1/2 lbs., this is a light but great sounding instrument that packs well. Good for trips to the beach, camping, hiking, watching the Canucks not score.

$225.00

I played with one of those in the guitar store the other day. They sound great for their size, I was very impressed.

Too bad I'm not in the market for another acoustic right now... Someone is gonna get a good deal.

Somebody should make one of these that doubles as a canoe paddle, because they're almost the same thing already.

A canoe paddle it is not. Close you eyes and you can barely tell its not a full size acoustic. Martin spent a lot of time perfecting the backpack guitar, it's not just a cut down acoustic body and a short neck.

Can you tell I'm jealous.
