Martin Guitars and legendary British blues rocker Eric Clapton have joined forces to create a stunning signature model that blends classic Martin tone and style with a selection of appointments chosen by Slowhand himself.

A beautiful addition to the Martin Marquis Collection, the Martin 000-28EC is modeled after the guitar that Clapton played during his legendary MTV unplugged performance. Crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top, standard "X" bracing, and gorgeous solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, the 000-28EC offers rich, warm voice with incredible tonal balance. With a nice '000' punch and well-balanced tonality, the 000-28EC makes the perfect addition to any flatpicker or acoustic blues player's collection. If you're a fan of the "V" neck, you'll love the neck on this one. The 24.9"-scale select hardwood neck is shaped into Clapton's preferred modified V profile that'll fit your fretting hand beautifully. The smooth-playing ebony 'board houses 20 frets and showcases classic Diamond & Square long pattern inlays and Clapton's signature. The neck also boasts a traditional-style solid diamond square taper headstock featuring a striking solid East Indian rosewood headplate with a Large Old Style Martin logo. The body and neck both come dressed in a smooth polished gloss finish while the top is adorned with vintage toner to add to the 000-28EC's old-school vibe. A set of nickel open-gear tuning machines with butterbean knobs, a solid black ebony bridge, and a bone nut & saddle offer superior performance and tone. Adding to the vintage appeal, the 000-28EC flaunts classic Martin appointments including a fine herringbone top inlay and rosette, grained ivoroid binding, HD Zig-Zag back purfling, a tortoise color pickguard, and black/white boltaron back & endpiece inlays. Comes complete with a Geib-style hardshell case and an interior label with pre-printed signatures from Eric Claption and CFM IV.

      Comments about Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Acoustic Guitar:

      I like everything about this guitar. The playability, the sound and the looks. It's not over decorated, but it still has some very nice details. I also have a Kenneth Brøgger, a "real handmade" guitar (00 shape spruce/indian rosewood) and it is just so much better in all aspects, despite the smaller body. It just goes to show that the 000 ec is good, but you can get better.

          Comments about Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Acoustic Guitar:

          I bought this guitar about a month ago...I own a Taylor 914-ce, those who own or have played Taylors know about the incredible neck...I was a little worried about the neck shape/feel on the 000-28EC, but it is fantastic (not the 914 though, but still great)...The vintage toner on the top really gives it the look of a vintage guitar...the sound/tone are amazingly vintage also...all in all, this gets a 100!

          I've dreamed of having an acoustic guitar custom made but they're pricey. The Martin 000-28EC looks and plays like a custom-shop instrument. I'll be playing this guitar for a long time.

          "I ordered this over the phone and my salesman recommended this over another Martin. I Absolutely Love this guitar! The time that must have been put into the artistic inlays and the quality of the wood makes this guitar a true experience everytime I play it. Thanks again to my salesman, I owe him one."
