From the Yardbirds to Cream to his solo career, it’s hard to argue with the only three time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Just surpassing 50 years of influential blues and rock, there are few musicians who hold up like Eric Clapton and in tribute of that, Martin has awarded him his own signature guitar. Since its initial release in 1996, the Martin 000-28EC has gained major popularity and for good reason. Its body construction begins with a Sitka Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood sides creating a long-cherished, balanced tone. Elegance is in the subtleties and the fine herringbone binding and rosette paired with the diamond fret markers perfectly capture the style and class of this legendary guitar. This is a brand new guitar with that comes with a deluxe 5 ply hard shell case and limited lifetime warranty. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about this guitar!
