Guitar Gallery

The Martin 000-28EC is based on the guitar Eric Clapton used in his iconic MTV Unplugged performance. With its 000 14-fret body, East Indian rosewood back and sides and Sitka spruce top, the 000-28EC captures that rich, versatile tone that can be heard throughout Clapton's legendary acoustic set.

Body

This guitar utilises Martin's '000' body shape with solid East Indian rosewood for the back and sides and solid Sitka spruce for top. The combination of these tonewoods with the 000 body shape results in a guitar that's comfortable with a rich, well-balanced, and versatile tone. The articulate and responsive sound of the 000-28EC will let your playing ring out whether you're fingerpicking or strumming.

Neck

The 000-28EC features a gloss finish neck with a Modified V profile, a comfortable shape for wrapping your hand around, particularly if you prefer to rest your thumb on the top of the neck. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard which offers a smooth, natural-feeling playing surface and features a Clapton signature inlay before the last fret. While the 000-28EC is suitable for a wide range of styles, the 24.9" scale length and 1 3/4" nut width gives the strings a slightly looser and more spacious feel which makes it very comfortable for fingerstyle.
