In 1994, the crew of the Columbia Space Shuttle STS-62 boldly went where no guitar has gone before with the launch of a miniature Backpacker “Space Guitar” which was sent to orbit around the earth.
Now in 2017, Martin Guitar is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Martin Backpacker! Available only in 2017, the limited edition Backpacker is constructed with sapele top, back, and sides. The Martin Backpacker is strung with Martin Acoustic strings and is the perfect for summer travel.
