Martin 000-ECHF Bellezza Bianca Guitar Story:
In the summer of 2004, C. F. Martin introduced the Bellezza Nera, a spectacular black 000 guitar with silver accents collaboratively designed by British guitar legend Eric Clapton and Japanese fashion and music trendsetter Hiroshi Fujiwara. It proved to be a huge hit: a total of 476 of these visually and sonically inspired guitars were produced, among the most popular limited editions in Martin history.
In the beginning of 2006 Clapton and Fujiwara finished work on their next guitar collaboration for Martin; a sister instrument to the Bellezza Nera, but in creamy white, with a touch of black and pearl for dramatic effect. As beautiful as its predecessor in appearance and tone, this stunning 000 guitar could only be called Bellezza Bianca ("White Beauty"). For a summer 2006 launch at the 2006 NAMM Show.
