Martin Eric Clapton 000-42M

#225 of 250

This rare guitar has been owned by a collector and has had a relatively easy life. It's in fantastic condition and looks and sounds absolutely beautiful!! The rare and exotic materials used in construction make this guitar sound, look and feel just right.

Since the original 000-42EC Eric Clapton Signature Edition Guitar was introduced in 1995, Clapton has explored the sonic subtleties of various tonewood combinations in the 000 Martin guitars that bear his name, but the 000-42M Eric Clapton Limited Edition may well boast the most exciting tonewood combination yet. The top is Carpathian spruce, which blends the power and clarity of Adirondack spruce, and the warmth and responsiveness of Italian alpine spruce. The back and sides are Madagascar rosewood, prized for its uncanny resemblance in both appearance and rich resonance to the now-endangered Brazilian rosewood. Scalloped top braces give both tonewoods full tonal expression. The 1-3/4" (at the nut) V neck with diamond volute is carved from genuine mahogany.
