Description

So close to new, the case still has that new car smell. We’ve landed an incredible 2013 Martin 000-45EC Crossroads in Madagascar Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce that’s dead mint and shining like a polished silver dollar. Every detail is executed in exquisite fashion, from the 45-style Abalone trim to the crossroads emblem-inlaid bridge, and Martin saved their primo tonewoods for use here. This is one of only 55 such guitars built, and the label and certificate of authenticity both bear Clapton’s signature. Built to 1930s specs, this 000-45EC Crossroads has a crisp response and airiness that lends itself well to a multitude of styles. While it’s particularly well-suited for fingerstyle work, it also holds up handsomely to a pick as well.

I’m really having fun with this guitar. It’s gorgeous to look at with the 45-style inlays and the Crossroads aesthetic. It really captures the classic Martin vibe to me. This is a strong guitar with a very forward projection and superb clarity on every string. Of course with the namesake like Eric Clapton it’s a blues hound, punchy and strong, but it also has a beautiful side when you lighten your touch. An exquisite guitar, one of only 55 made, so it’s also extremely collectible. Enjoy it and play it while you keep your investment safe and sound.
