Martin 000-45EC Madagascar Clapton Crossroads Model (2013)


This high collectable pre-owned 000-45EC "Crossroads" model is one of a run of 30 made by Martin in conjunction with Eric Clapton. Based on the 14-fret 000-45 introduced by Martin in 1934 and built to Claptons specifications, this is in many ways the ultimate Clapton acoustic guitar.  In addition to having an incredible pedigree the label is hand-singed by both Clapton and Chris Martin.  This very limited instrument remains in mint condition and provides a rare opportunity to own of the most sought-after Martin Signature Models.   Priced with its original hard case from Martin's Custom Shop.
