Ed Sheeran's Signature Martin Guitar - First Look
Ed has been playing Martin guitars since the start of his career and has made the Little Martin LX1E incredibly popular with young beginners.
The Grammy Award-nominee said, "It was a huge privilege to have the opportunity to collaborate with Martin Guitar... I am honoured to have a signature edition that bears my own personal imprint."
The Ed Sheeran Signature Edition guitar will bear an orange '+' headstock motif, after his debut album, and 'est. 1991', the year he was born. The solid maple top will also feature the '+' symbol, laser-etched into the top.
"We are so proud to have such a prolific and credible artist as Ed Sheeran join the Martin Guitar family," said Martin's Amani Duncan.
Sheeran has said he will donate "every single penny" of the royalties to the East Anglia Children's Hospices, with the LX1E guitar also bearing the 'EACH' logo. EACH Chief Executive Graham Butland said, "Not only will the guitar raise much-needed funds for the charity, but will also greatly raise the profile of EACH and the vital care and support we provide to life-threatened children and their families."
Ed has said. "I can't wait to get on stage and perform with it for my fans - I hope they enjoy my new Martin as much as I do!"
