Eric Clapton is indisputably a legend. Writing and performing some of the best songs in the history of Rock 'n Roll, Clapton has had no problems showcasing his skills on various guitars. The Martin 000-28EC pays homage to this man and his skill on the guitar. As it is a collaboration between Martin and Clapton, the Martin 000-28EC delivers a dynamic range of balanced, warm tones. It features a shorter 24.9" scale, a solid Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood sides and back. The 000-28EC is as impressive in sound as it is in beauty.
