Martin Guitars are arguably the 'top dogs' in the Acoustic Guitar market. Their designs have quite literally shaped the Acoustic Guitar as we know it - most famously the Dreadnought shape, originally designed in 1916. With a legendary roster of artists using their instruments including John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, John Mayer and the eponymous Ed Sheeran to name a few, there is no doubt Martin instruments are some of the worlds finest.
After selling millions of records and taking a year-long creative hiatus, Ed Sheeran has re-emerged in 2017 with a new chart-busting album and his latest Martin Custom model, the Ed Sheeran ÷ Signature Edition. Built upon Ed’s love of the LX1E LITTLE MARTIN, and continuing with his mathematical themed album cover art, the “Ed Sheeran 3” forms a trilogy of signature guitars that have supported Ed along his soaring career path to pop stardom. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top etched with Ed’s album art and a blue soundhole rosette to match, the Ed Sheeran ÷ Signature Edition is constructed with mahogany HPL back and sides and sports blue ÷ symbols across the fingerboard and headstock. Equipped with a Custom interior label, Fishman Sonitone electronics and a gig bag, this little Martin with a big sound is ready to hit the stage, just as Ed intended.
