    Product Description

    In recognition of Eric Clapton's unparalleled stature in the music industry, Martin introduced the incredible 00028EC in 1996. The award-winning Martin 00028EC Eric Clapton Acoustic Guitar draws its inspiration from the famous 000-42EC in body size, shape and tonewoods. It has the smaller '000' body size that Clapton prefers and that is particularly popular among fingerstyle and blues guitarists who like a clear and balanced sound together with the string flexibility that the shorter 24.9 inch scale length allows. Its top is solid spruce with a vintage toner finish; the 2-piece back and sides are solid East Indian rosewood with a gloss finish. Includes hardshell case.

    Vintage Series
    Martin's fine Vintage Series instruments draw their inspiration from the elegant vintage designs and appointments of the pre-World War II era. Most Vintage Series models include old-style squared headstock, modified V-shaped neck, period fingerboard inlays, scalloped bracing, beveled tortoise colored pickguard, old-style long or through saddle, aging toner finish on soundboard, vintage style tuning machines and a vintage Geib Style case.

    Aside from being visually stunning, this is one of the most tonaly balanced guitar I've played. I own many acoustic guitars. I have Martins, Gibson and Taylor by far this is an excellent example of good old handmade American craftmenship.
