This 000-42ECB is definitely one of the most collectable Martins made in the last few decades. It is going up in value each year since Brazilian Rosewood guitars are outpacing stockmarket investments and it also sounds amazing. Trebles, mids and bass tones all resonate beautifully and easily. There are four different Eric Clapton Martin guitar models and the 000-42 ECB is the most rare. Only two hundred of these were made in the years leading up to 2000. The one I am selling is number 165 as you can see from the inside label which is signed by Eric Clapton and Christian Martin. The shorter scale of this guitar makes it highly playable and it has fine-grained quarter-sawn Brazilian Rosewood back and sides.  It is certainly unmarked and it hasn't even had the strap pin fitted. The other top thing about this guitar is it looks fantastic. The headstock inlay is based on the 1902 Style Torch. The fretboard markers are made with 45-style double inlaid abalone with pearl borders. They look damn cool. Eric Clapton's signature is on the 14th fret and the bridge has an ebony belly with abalone snowflakes. Turn the guitar over and there is a marquetry back strip and gold Waverly tuners. Elsewhere it is 42-style abalone central. In terms of payment I would prefer either a bank transfer or a bank draft. I am willing to send the guitar to Europe via Fex Ex with full insurance. The cost of this will be determined once I know the city the guitar has to go to.  I really wish I didn't have to sell this 000-42ECB since I think it is visually and sonically stunning.

Please ask any questions prior to bid. I will not sell this guitar just to

I have an unplayed serial # 105 out of 200 000-42ECB I plan to offer for sale as well. I posted photos of it on Facebook Martin Guitar Owners site 2-06-2010.
