Product Description

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.

The Martin LX1E has been Ed Sheeran’s guitar of choice since his early teens. In the span of just two years, Sheeran’s career has catapulted him from a rising star in his native UK, where he was nominated in 2012 for multiple music awards and won two Brit awards, to global success including a massive fan base and critical acclaim in the US. Sheeran and his favorite LX1E Martin guitar have also graced prestigious stages worldwide, from the London Summer Olympics opening ceremony in 2012 to the 2013 Grammy Awards, teaming up with Sir Elton John.

It was a huge privilege to have the opportunity to collaborate with Martin Guitar,’ said Ed Sheeran. ‘I have been a fan of Martin since I started playing guitar and songwriting, and I am honored to have a Signature Edition that bears my own personal imprint. All of the royalties from every purchase from my Signature Edition will go to the East Anglia Children’s Hospices. I can’t wait to get on stage and perform with it for my fans - I hope they enjoy my new Martin as much as I do!

What is your overall opinion of this product?
I purchased this to keep from having to drag my more expensive guitar places and to sit around and practice with. Not much sound until you plug it in, but then it's killer. Not a single flaw on it when it arrived. Great little black tuners. Simple controls with a tuner that is easy to read and works well. I love the top and the Ed Sheeran design. This thing has huge volume with my acoustic amp. The medium strings are not bad on the short neck. The action is set at just over the width of a nickel at the 12th fret. Awesome guitar to leave sitting around for easy access. It would be a good size for a child to learn on but would change to lighter strings while learning.
