This baby does it all. In essentially the same shape since its birth in 1998, this Claxton EM can take whatever tuning or genre you throw at it and make something beautiful out of it. The classic combination of Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce has rarely sounded so crisp, even, and projective--at Claxton's SJ-size, this EM has a huge voice, but its lightweight construction makes for a guitar that's easy on the shoulders to play for extended periods of time.

The string-to-string balance is yep, you guessed it, superb; the bass notes are rich but focused, paired sweetly with the trebles.

1998 Claxton, Ed EM -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Just a great all-around guitar. The play feel is glassy and quick, and I love the understated style that Ed's rockin' here." - Paul Heumiller

"I love playing Ed Claxton's guitars. They have a warmth and clarity that is hard to find and the workmanship is amazing. This one is slightly more traditional in its styling compared to his newer instruments, but the years of playing have really opened it up." - Al Petteway
