The Ed Sheeran LX1E X (LX1E-ED-X) is the continuation of C.F. Martin & Co's collaboration with multi-platinum singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. Straight from the Martin Custom Shop the guitar based around the 2013 LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature Edition and the LX1E he used throughout his meteoric rise to fame.
As 2013's LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature (which has sold out), 100% of Ed Sheeran's royalties from each guitar are going to East Anglia's Children's Hospice (www.each.org.uk), a charity in Ed's hometownthat's always very close to his heart.
The new 2015 version of the Ed Sheeran X Signature Edition still includes Ed's trademark "x" symbol, both on the headstock and also as fingerboard inlays. Inlayed in solid koa on the LX1E's solid spruce wood top this guitar looks great and with Fishman Isys T electronics, SP Lifespan Martin strings and a padded gig bag is also totally ready for the road.
Amani Duncan (VP of Brand Marketing for Martin Guitars) has been quoted as saying "I take great pride in the relationship we have with Ed... He is not only an incredible talent but also an extremely compassionate human being. Over 182 years, Martin Guitar has had the privilege of working alongside legendary Artists, and we are proud to be able to continue this long-standing tradition and musical journey with Ed Sheeran."
Pre-Order now!! We expect the first of these guitars to land in June/July 2015 and for stock to be extremely limited.
