Another gorgeous 000-28 Eric Clapton model, super sweet rich tone that's ideal for blues picking and strumming.
"The 000-28EC, introduced in 1996, has become one of Martin's most popular stock models. Eric calls his 000-28EC "utilitarian... in the very BEST sense of the word." The 000-28EC model draws its inspiration from the 000-42EC in body size, shape and tonewoods."
