We accept most Payment methods & offer Financing
Eric Clapton began his relationship with Martin back in 1995 with the introduction of the 000-42EC. Over the years, a couple other signature limited edition runs of instruments followed to celebrate Clapton and his many amazing contributions to music. One of the more notable runs he introduced with Martin was the 2007 Limited Edition Eric Clapton 000-42M model. This special edition guitar was limited to only 250 instruments, constructed using carefully selected high grade Madagascar rosewood for the back and sides, Carpathian spruce for the soundboards, solid mahogany necks, solid ebony fret boards and 45 style appointments. Along with a couple other special features, all instruments were numbered sequentially 1 though 250 and signed by Eric Clapton himself.
This very special example is number 1 of 3 prototypes constructed by the Martin factory to introduce the run and is numbered as such on the interior label. This is the first one...ever! This guitar has never been owned or circulated. It comes straight from the Martin factory private reserves locker! As one could surely imagine, a company like Martin would certainly put their best foot forward when introducing such an amazing limited run of guitars bearing the name of one of the most notable people to ever play the instrument. This guitar is proof of that! The selection, quality & color of the woods used to construct this fine guitar toped off with the detailed inlay work make this instrument a must have for any guitar collector or Martin enthusiast.This instrument does not include a Martin factory warranty. Please email or call with any questions.
