Back in 2003, Eric Clapton toured with a custom-made guitar designed in collaboration with Japanese musician and designer Hiroshi Fujiwara. A year later Martin released a limited production model based on the same design, featuring Alpine Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, snowflake inlays and that striking black finish. They called it "Bellezza Nera". This one is number 183 out of that limited batch of 476. A surprisingly powerful small guitar, this one has been well cared for, bearing only light signs of play wear. There is some light color bleed from the case that is visible in the white binding. This was a known issue with the case material Martin used for these guitars. Minor but worth noting. Priced with its original Martin hard case.
