Here we have a Martin LX1E Little Martin. You probably know what this is. If not, go here: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/LX1E/
This guitar is in pretty much mint condition. It comes with the included Martin gigbag. I made one change (I am a professional guitar repairman). I replaced the gears with black Gotoh tuners, which are not only infinitely better than what came on it, they are probably the best tuning gears available today, period. If you buy this guitar, you will probably end up wanting to change the tuners on all of your other guitars :-)
The action is super low, no buzzing, and plays pretty much perfectly in tune. It also sounds great, for what it is (a very small acoustic guitar). This guitar has no cracks, no repairs, and no mods, aside from the changed tuning gears. No issues whatsoever.
This model is the more expensive version that comes with the built-in Fishman active pickup and preamp. Plugged in, it sounds basically the same as any other high quality guitar with a pickup. And by that, I mean similar to a $2k Martin with a Fishman installed, not some $800. imported plywood piece of junk with an asian Fishman copy in it.
My feedback rating is 100%, so rest assured that I have described accurately!
