If you get a chance. Get a Martin Backpacker. Great sound, good for busking, light and easy to wear with a pack on, you can just sling it over your shoulder to one side. I am playing on in my avatar. I swear I made more money because people never see that kind of guitar, rather than my skill at playing. I hate carrying a damn guitar case =/
The action is amazing in my opinion. Except past the twelfth fret, the it gets ridiculous. I do have to mention though, that I hitched 3000+ miles with that guitar in all weather with no case. And its still going strong, even with a cracked body.How is the action on those backpackers? I've heard some bad some good about it.
