Original C.F. Martin Backpacker Travel Guitar
Steel String Acoustic Travel Guitar
circa 1999
with Original Case & Strap


This auction is for one steel string Martin Backpacker Travel Guitar with original accessories, as shown.

Original C.F. Martin Backpacker Travel guitar with original case and nylon web Martin strap.  Legendary Martin quality in a travel guitar that can go anywhere.

This individual is either a 1998 or 1999 model.  One owner; it was purchased new around 1999.  The serial number has been obscured for purposes of the auction, but it is 75,XXX, and the guitar can be accurately dated from that.  Guitar is in excellent condition overall.  It has traveled a bit, but is in excellent condition.  Spruce top has aged nicely and is a warm pleasing color.  Could use a new set of strings but is otherwise ready to go.  This guitar has traveled around the state of Missouri but now it wants to see the world with you.

Includes original case/gig bag which has a roomy outer pocket and a removable shoulder strap (see photo).  Case is in excellent, albeit slightly dusty, condition.  Also included is the original Martin branded nylon strap (see photo).  This guitar has been well cared for and will be a great travel companion for many years to come.  It should be owned by someone who travels more than I, instead of spending most of its time in a closet.  Any questions, please ask.  Plenty of photos below.

Hours of fun.
