Product information - Martin Backpacker Steel

Compact travel guitar with solid woods and including transport bag

The Martin Backpacker Steel is perfect for use on the road due to its unusual design and solid workmanship. Thanks to its solid tonewoods, the compact backpacker body produces a very powerful sound that unfolds quickly even with light touches. A short 610 mm scale length and a 43 mm wide nut also provide the best conditions for particularly comfortable playability in all 15 frets. A sturdy, matching bag with accessory compartment rounds off the overall package perfectly.

Construction and woods

To create an assertive sound, the manufacturer uses a spruce top on a sapele body. This combination creates very clear mid and treble frequencies, so that the Backpacker Steel comes into its own, especially at Pickings. A flat Select Hardwood neck with a Richlite fingerboard also provides a very accommodating feel.

Design and Hardware

For a precise tuning of the 6 steel strings the manufacturer relies on closed tuners, which give the instrument a high-class touch with their noble chrome hardware. A saddle made of Corian and a compensated saddle made of Graph Tech TUSQ also ensure clean intonation over the entire scale. The Martin Backpacker Steel is completed with a simple matte finish that emphasizes the fine grain of the tonewoods used in a very subtle way.
