clansfolk Travel guitars (48) RE: Travel guitars 12 Jan 04

I have the LXME - "My Formica Friend". Acoustic sound is good likewise projection (for size)- no it's not up to the standards of my D41 - or even the D.15 But nicer than the Baby Taylor I have - the top on it isn't much thicker than a plectrum - but stronger than wood and when played through a PA sounds like a standard wood guitar....


Tenor size (modified 0) body of High Pressure Laminate, mahogany & spruce finish, 6 strings, Stratabond neck with low oval profile, black micarta fretboard (1 11/16" nut, 23" scale). 34" overall length. Mini Q transducer pickup, 1/4" jack. Strung with medium gauge strings to play in standard tuning.

Stratabond has been used for rifle stocks for a long time and micarta for fret boards on guitars for some time - even Taylors???

Like the way the VOL/TONE unit forms the jack output section next to the back block where it doesn't interfere with the sound output (acoustic) as much as on a standard guitar and once you've got used to it's position it's as easy to adjust.

Love it!
