Pick up Clapton signed guitar in aid of drugs centre April 02 2013
YOU can get your hands on an Eric Clapton signed guitar from us this month (December, 2014) and treat yourself to an early Christmas present.
The limited edition Martin 00028 is a very rare guitar and a real treat for any aficionados out there, and for anyone who loves Eric Clapton too.
This stunning instrument was commissioned in partnership with Eric Clapton and the C.F. Martin Guitar Custom Shop in aid of The Crossroads Foundation.
Proceeds from the sale of the guitar will be donated to the Crossroads Centre, which is an international organisation in Antigua for people suffering from the devastating effects of alcohol and other drug dependencies and was founded by Eric Clapton.
The Crossroads Centre offers residential care in an intensive therapeutic and supportive environment, away from the confusion and distractions of living with addiction.
The guitar, named a ‘Crossroads Madagascar’, has been produced in limited numbers making it very rare. There are only 150 in the world.
Constructed from the finest tone woods including Madagascar Rosewood from Martin’s special reserve, these guitars are based on the legendary 14 fret 000 body style and 24 inch scale length neck.
They are uniquely appointed with ‘Crossroads’ pearl headstock inlay and bear the personal, handwritten signatures of Eric Clapton and Martin Guitar’s CEO, Chris Martin IV on both the Certificate of Authenticity and the sound hole label.
The guitar comes with an Eric Clapton signature case and leather strap too, making it a collector’s item.
The Martin 00028 Eric Clapton Signature Limited Edition guitar is priced at £5,299.99 and is available for sale from us (insert link to product on the website).
