Product information - Martin 000-28ECE Eric Clapton

Acoustic guitar, Signature model, 000 construction, all solid, Sitka spruce top, rosewood body, 632 mm scale length, 44.45 mm nut width, including case

With this detailed replica of the 000-28 model designed especially for Eric Clapton , which the blues legend used for his legendary MTV Unplugged performance in 1992 , the traditional manufacturer Martin presents its Martin 000-28ECE Eric Clapton that not only looks amazingly similar to the original, but also conveys its unique sound. A number of selected specifications, such as the Modified V-neck profile , a fine herringbone binding made of grained ivoroid and an Antique Toner finish set this instrument apart from the traditional Standard Series. Other highlights include the L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system , the Awabi signature inlay on the 20th frets  and the certificate inside the soundhole, which includes Clapton's and Christian Frederick Martin IV's signatures in addition to the handwritten serial number . The scope of delivery includes a sturdy ply-hardshell case and a warranty card .

Clear frequencies thanks to a Sitka spruce top.

Sitka spruce top with Antique-Toner finish

In order to create an expressive tone enriched with distinct mid and high frequencies, the manufacturer uses a tightly grained Sitka spruce top , which, due to its fine structure, produces each individual tone in a clear and defined way. A wafer-thin finish and Scalloped-X-Bracing promote the strong vibration behaviour of the wood and allow for a direct and light attack with a perfect sound development in all ranges. The material coloured with an antique toner immediately gives the impression of an instrument that has been played for years and gives it a very aesthetic touch, which is further emphasised by a Fine-Herringbone-Multi-Stripe rosette and a Fine-Herringbone binding . A tortoise pattern pickguard in combination with the ebony bridge and the light-coloured top wood creates an overall picture rich in contrast, which forms a smooth transition to the other materials used.

Martin 000-28ECE back
Back and sides made of East Indian rosewood

East Indian rosewood with a striking grain

For the back and sides of the instrument, the manufacturer uses rosewood with a striking and coarse grain, which enriches the sound with its clear and dynamic bass frequencies. This makes it easy to produce a direct tone, interspersed with a subtle richness and provides a strong foundation for the lower positions, which is especially beneficial for traditional blues picking or fingerstyle . Also with the 000-28EC the combination of the bright frequencies of the Sitka spruce top and the soft saturation of the rosewood body proves to be a good choice, as it allows the relatively small sized guitar to produce a very direct and balanced sound. Split by a zig-zag back-strip and framed by fine multi-stripe bindings , the symmetry of the opened back is particularly evident and allows the observer a deep insight into the exciting grain of the high-quality tropical wood.

A special neck for individual demands

Unlike the Standard Series, the Eric Clapton Edition comes with a solid mahogany neck , which is equipped with a Modified V-profile , giving it a much better grip and allowing the notes to be picked cleanly with little effort. In addition, the ebony fretboard , thanks to the generous 44.45 mm nut width , offers enough space for complex fingerings and excellent access to all 20 frets . The dark wood is decorated with Diamonds-and-Squares abalone inlays , which mark the most important frets and emphasize the value of the even wood with their colorful reflections. To ensure perfect intonation over the entire scale length of 632 mm , the manufacturer uses a nut and a compensated saddle made of the finest bone material . Their millimetre-precise workmanship demonstrates the incredible skill of the craftsmen behind this product. Open nickel tuners are inserted into the typical Martin headstock, guaranteeing precise and reliable tuning and adding another venerable touch to the instrument.
