❌SOLD❌ Martin 000 28EC Eric Clapton Signature Guitar, 2019


Instrument Categories: , ,

Here is a very nice Martin 000 28EC Eric Clapton Signature model, built during 2019 in Nazareth, Pennsylvania and in close to new condition. This example does not carry any of the factory pickup options, and no aftermarket pickups have been installed.

On 16 January 1992, Eric Clapton performed for a small audience at Bray Film Studios in Windsor England. This iconic performance for the MTV Unplugged TV series would spawn an accompanying album that would become his best selling with 26 million copies worldwide. His guitar of choice was a 1966 Martin 000-28.

The MTV Unplugged performance had many effects on the popularity of this model, Eric Clapton’s career, and the Martin Guitar Company itself. At the time, interest in Martin guitars was dangerously low. Immediately after the performance aired – the next day – demand skyrocketed and Martin was able to resume full production. For Clapton himself, the event marked a shift from electric blues and rock to acoustic material, and the album from the performance won six Grammy awards and became his best selling album.

While the Martin 000 28EC Eric Clapton Signature Model shares many of the same features as the standard 000-28, at Clapton’s request it features a modified V neck profile and standard neck taper along with his inlaid signature at the end of the fretboard.

The classic pairing of Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood sides and back produces a rich well balanced tone and the scalloped x bracing pattern boosts bass response and volume.

More From The Builder On The  Martin 000 28EC Eric Clapton Signature model:

“We based this model on Eric Clapton’s guitar of choice for his iconic MTV Unplugged performance. Constructed from East Indian rosewood, the visually stunning Martin 000 28EC produces a well-balance tone.”

This fine instrument is sold with its original hard shell case, which is also in excellent condition.
