Ed Sheeran has become a household name since the release of his 2012 album '+', winning multiple awards from that day to this Ed has proved himself to be a highly skilled singer and multi-instrumentalist. The Martin Ed Sheeran X Signature Edition Electro Acoustic Guitar is the second Signature Artist Edition to be designed in collaboration with Ed. Like the model before this, 100% of Ed's royalties from each sale is being donated to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
As you would expect from Martin, the Martin Ed Sheeran X Signature employs some premium wood to achieve the dynamic and responsive sound that you will love to hear. A solid spruce top provides plenty of top end snap and projection and is complete with a decorative inlaid Koa "X".
The back and sides of the Ed Sheeran X Signature Edition Electro Acoustic Guitar are crafted using Koa high pressure laminate. This is a particularly popular wood for those wanting a compact size guitar but are in need of a full bodied sound.
The Ed Sheeran X Signature Edition Electro Acoustic utilises a 'low oval' shape birch neck,enhancing comfort and adding to the compact feel of the body. This is adorned with a richlite fingerboard containing a total of 20 frets (14 clear) and green 'X' positional inlays that match the large green 'X' and Martin logo on the headstock.
Precision pickup system
The Martin Ed Sheeran X Signature utilises a compact yet powerful Fishman IsysT pickup system. This piezo based pickup clearly translates vibrations of the spruce soundboard into clear signal to be sent to any amplification and recording equipment. The IsysT also gives you control over volume, contour and phase to "shape" the sound to your liking. The addition of a built in tuner also makes your pre-performance ritual more convenient.
Attention to detail
Other key components that all add up to the superb performance of this compact and powerful guitar include a Richlite belly style bridge and a 16" Radius/Compensated/Black Tusq saddle. This works symbiotically with the black ping tuners (complete with small knobs) to produce a pure and resonant sustain as well as exceptionally solid tuning over long performances.
The Martin Ed Sheeran X Signature Edition Electro Acoustic is an incredibly capable guitar that you are going to want to keep in pristine condition so to help you with this, a padded gig bag is included with every purchase. Now is your chance to own the exact same specification of guitar that Ed uses on stage, all whilst giving a helping hand to a UK charity.
