The popularity of small bodied acoustic guitars has exploded over the last few years. While many can remember Eric Clapton's iconic "Unplugged" performance with his smaller bodied Martin, the recent surge of artists such as Ed Sheeran, showcasing smaller acoustic guitars has brought them to the spotlight.
The New Martin OX2MAE is a small bodied guitar that you will fall in love with. Sporting a "0" size body, the OX2MAE is an HPL (High-Pressure Laminate) guitar that is built to sound great and withstand the abuse of everyday play and gigging.

Taking its aesthetic cues from Martins classic 15 series (all mahogany top, back, and sides), the OX2MAE is dressed up with a herringbone ink rosette and a traditional Martin Logo'd headstock.
The 14 fret performing artist neck, which comes in at a 24.9" scale length, is comfortable to play from day one. In addition, this little monster of a guitar has X bracing (scalloped), Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified Richlite fingerboard and bridge.
