‼️Reduced‼️  Marc Beneteau OM Cedar and Padauk, 2011

This Marc Beneteau OM was built during 2011 at the Beneteau Guitars shop in St. Thomas, Ontario.   Marc has been building since 1974, originally in Ottawa.   He is largely self taught, though he’s taken inspiration from Jean Larrivee’s work.   Many prominent Canadian builders worked directly for or with Larrivee, but Marc did not, instead taking cues from Larrivee’s influences from classical guitar building, which produces a result quite different from the Martin – Gibson building styles.

❌ Sold ❌ C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature, 2006

❌ Sold ❌ C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature, 2006

The C F Martin company based the 000-28EC model on the guitar Eric Clapton leaned on for his 1992 ‘Unplugged’ MTV performance. The C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature is a very well balanced guitar, producing wonderful results for fingerstyle and picking. As a ’28’ style guitar, it pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate; the neck and body blocks are Mahogany, and the unbound fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. It has ‘Herringbone’ style binding – which would not have been on a 1966 model!
