The Martin LX1E Ed Sheeran Acoustic Electric Guitar was designed in collaboration with the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and features his personal artistic details! His signature fluorescent orange ‘+’ sign and ‘est. 1991’, which represents the name of his platinum-selling album and year Sheeran was born respectively. This signature Martin LX1E also features the ‘+’ plus sign logo laser-etched on the solid sapele top, which signifies the title of his platinum-selling debut album.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Ed’s LX1E guitar will be donated to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (www.each.org.uk ), a UK-based charity Sheeran supports and is passionate about. The organization, whose Royal Patron is The Duchess of Cambridge, supports families and cares for young children and young people with life-threatening conditions and provides services across several UK counties, including Suffolk, where Sheeran was raised.
