❌SOLD❌ C. A. Potter Criterion Guitar, Circa 1905

❌SOLD❌ C. A. Potter Criterion Guitar, Circa 1905

There isn’t a lot of information about C. A. Potter Criterion guitars but these were built around 1905 in Cleveland, Ohio. This was a higher-end instrument with features taken from other makers. Notably, the neck and head joints show significant influence from the Martin-Stauffer instruments built around the 1830s. It’s interesting how some of the features found on these early instruments have come back in improved form. On the Potter Criterion, there is a bolt through the heel to secure the neck joint – an arrangement used in a slightly different way by many modern builders including Taylor.

❌SOLD❌  C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Left Handed, 2013

The C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton is based on the 000 model, first introduced in 1902 and with a number of updates has been in continuous production. It is very similar to the later OM or Orchestra model – the two models share the same body design but, the OM has a 25.4 inch scale length compared to the 000’s 24.9 inch.

❌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!

❌SOLD❌ C. F. Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar, 2006

❌SOLD❌ C. F. Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar, 2006

Overall, this C.F. Martin 000-28 Steel String guitar is in very nice condition, with minor wear. The finish doesn’t have any significant scratches, just very light scuffing that would polish well. Fret wear is light to moderate, and there’s plenty of material for a light fret dress to make them look new. The guitar has been played, but well cared for. This body style is tonally much more even than the big D body Dreadnoughts, which tend to be weighted towards bass.
