OVERVIEW

Find ins-paw-ration with this solid sapele topped beauty inspired by the Suf-folk pop star.

Designed in collaboration with award-winning recording artist Ed Sheeran, the LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature Edition features Ed' signature œpaw print on the headstock and album logo laser-etched on the solid sapele top. Stage-ready, this model is small enough to take anywhere and comes equipped with Fishman Isys T electronics, SP Lifespan Martin strings and a padded gig bag. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this model will be donated to the East Anglia' Children' Hospices (www.each.org).

How does a 22 year old have a signature guitar already? Well, not only was the young singer-songwriter featured on Taylor Swift's mega-succesful Red album and as her opening act on her tour, but his own album, simply titled +, garnered two Brit Awards for Best British Male and British Breakthrough. It's top single, "The A Team" won him the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, as well as a Song of the Year Grammy nomination. He was also one of the writers behind One Direction's #1 "Little Things" and collaborator on their forthcoming album. He's already made it, and it doesn't look like he's slowing down. Neither should you. Pick up this special guitar today.

Comments about Martin LX1E Ed Sheeran Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The guitar is a nice size. I own an 000X1 and this one is a bit smaller than that one.
It sounds great as an acoustic and even better when it is plugged in.

      This is my first Little Martin and upon opening the carry bag, I fell in love with it instantly! The guitar sounds great even though it's a smaller size. Very portable and I can bring it everywhere. The quality is exceptional. Lastly, it is an Ed Sheeran signature guitar! Can't ask for more :)

      Comments about Martin LX1E Ed Sheeran Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar plugged in has a impressive sound. It came in packaged very well, and I was happy to find not a single blemish when I opened it up. It takes a little getting use to because it's so small. After a short time playing I didn't want to put it down. The sound of this little baby through my Loudbox Mini is awesome. It comes with medium strings which I was sure I wouldn't like, but now I have no problem with them. Comes with a nice little gig bag. Great design by Martin and Ed Sheeran. Thanks again Musician's Friend for great service.
