Steel String GuitarThe company Martin has existed for over a century and in the field of acoustic guitars it also stands for an absolute classic. There are probably few deserved guitarists who didn't for some time (or permanently) played a Martin.
A gentleman, who is normally famous for its incredible feeling on the Stratocaster, gave a MTV concert at the beginning of the 90's with acoustic instruments and thus incidentally triggered the Unplugged boom. The man in question is Eric Clapton, of course. He knows what is good and has always loved to play Martins - only logical that he has his own signature model. The top made of solid sitka spruce, the back and sides made of east Indian rosewood, the neck made of solid mahogany and the bridge made of solid ebony - with that ingredients the instrument must indeed be sounding good and may cost a bit more.
