Product Description

2002 Martin 000-28 ECB Eric Clapton Signature Series #366 / 500

Here, we have a none-too-common Martin acoustic – a 000-28ECB. You’ll see plenty of 000-28EC’s around, as Martin continues to make new runs of that guitar in East Indian Rosewood. But this is the 000-28ECB – made in a limited run of 500 instruments, this guitar features Brazilian Rosewood on the back and sides. 
From the Martin website:
 
” The 000-28ECB… has the smaller “000” body size that Clapton prefers and that is particularly popular among finger style and blues guitarists who like a clear and balanced sound together with the string flexibility that the shorter 24.9″ scale length allows. Crafted with solid woods throughout, the sides and back are constructed from solid Brazilian rosewood, and the top is bookmatched from select Sitka spruce for optimum tonal response.
“The rosette is embellished with delicately inlaid herringbone pearl, and the body is bound with grained ivoroid. A genuine ebony fingerboard features abalone diamonds and squares bordered in mother of pearl. Eric Clapton’s signature is inlaid in mother of pearl between the 19th and 20th frets. Each 000-28ECB will bear an interior label, individually numbered in sequence with the edition total and personally signed by Eric Clapton and Martin Chairman and CEO C. F. Martin IV. 
 
” The 000-28ECB is tastefully appointed with a hand beveled and polished tortoise colored pickguard. Premium Waverly nickel-plated open-geared tuning machines are equipped with vintage style “butterbean” knobs. The squared headstock bears Martin’s tasteful but elegant old-style decal logo.”

A Deluxe Vintage Series Geib Hardshell Case is included.
