CF Martin and co, the legendary acoustic manufacturer has teamed up with the legendary ginger chart topper Ed Sheeran to produce a new limited edition Sigature edition. This new model looks to be closely based on the LX1E that he played before he hit the big time, and that was also the model that got adapted to his first signature model with Martin back in 2013.
Ed has fast become not only one of the fastest rising stars in pop music, but one of the bright shining stars for actual non manufactured talent rising to success the old fashioned way of writing good songs, having a decent set of skills and working hard too! Ed seems to be a stand up nice bloke as well, for the 2nd time he's donating 100% of his royalties from this guitar to East Anglia's Children's Hospices, so no only is this guitar going to sell out fast and remain very collectable, but also will be doing good work at the same time!
This new X Signature edition features his signature 'x' symbol on both the headstock, down the fretboard and on the top too. The 'x' on the solid spruce top is inlayed in solid koa, and they come equiped with Fishman Isys T electronics and a padded gig bag.
Further evidence of how nice a chap Ed seems to be here's what he said about the new partnership with Martin:
"“It was a huge privilege working with the Martin team to create another Signature Edition guitar,” said Sheeran. “I’ve had the chance to bring the new model on the road with me already, and I’m excited that my fans will be able to purchase one of their own, with all the proceeds going to EACH, a charity very close to my heart.”"
