We're proud to offer up this 000-28EC from our friends over at Martin. Modeled after Eric Clapton's acoustic used on MTV's Unplugged, it's now available with a sunburst finish.
This acoustic is for a lot more than just Eric Clapton. Whether you're a fan of Mr. Slow Hands or just simply in need of a high-quality guitar, this could be the last acoustic you'll ever need. The 000 body shape is extremely comfortable while also being big enough to still provide some nice body and fullness to the sound. The warmth from the rosewood as well as the bell-like top-end of the guitar makes this a fantastic fingerpicking and singer-songwriter style of guitar but the spruce top can also handle some harder strumming without compressing too much or being overdriven. As you might imagine, Clapton needs a pretty versatile acoustic with big dynamic range and this one delivers.
Put a good mic in front of this beauty and you won't have any trouble getting your message across. A perfect companion for the stage, studio, road, and at home.
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 000-28EC produces a well-balanced tone.
