Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature Acoustic Guitar
The Martin 000-28EC draws inspiration from some of Martin's most successful smaller-bodied acoustic guitars, including the 000-42, originally introduced by Martin Guitars in 1996. This Signature Acoustic guitar celebrates the career of Eric Clapton, who famously used this exact model on MTV Unplugged all those years ago.
The tone and sound is classic for a Martin Acoustic, with bright singing sustain and incredible detail that ensures you and your audience hear every single note. Blues and folk players will appreciate its portability and comfort to play and the trademark tonewood combo that gives Martin a signature classy sound and performance.
A portable a comfortable example of tonal perfection
The Martin hallmark combination of Solid Sitka Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides produces a bright singing sustain and incredible detail that ensures you and your audience hear every single note. Whilst the Spruce top acts as an ideal diaphragm for transmitting the guitar's voice, the rosewood back and sides give you a highly resonant voice with a deep warm bass undertone. The resulting timbre is a perfectly balanced and versatile palette of smooth, warm sounds with complex harmonic overtones.
Everything about this guitar screams class, from the overall construction down to the fine details. Featuring a genuine ebony fingerboard with pre-war Style 28 snowflake pattern in a blond pearl, with Eric Clapton's signature inlaid in awabi mother-of-pearl between the 19th and 20th frets; a fine herringbone with multistripe rosette; old-style overlay logo on the headstock; compensated bone saddle and zig zag back strip, there's not a single inch of these guitar that doesn't look the part.
Each 000-28EC bears an interior label, individually numbered in sequence and comes with an official Martin hardshell case.
