The Martin LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature Edition acoustic guitar is a beautiful instrument that pays tribute to an accomplished musician, already legendary in his own time. The LX1E has been Ed Sheeran's favored instrument, since long before his Grammy nominations and collaborations with the likes of Taylor Swift catapulted him into the international spotlight. Having emerged as a pre-eminent brand ambassador to Martin, Sheeran was happy to accept their invitation to help design a unique LX1E small-body guitar that looks and sounds great anywhere it goes.

Hear Ed Sheeran talk about the creation of the LX1E:


A Martin LX1E with Distinctive Touches

The LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature Edition is a modified 0-14 fret design. It has a 23.145-inch scale length and is 3.75 inches deep. The wood top is solid sapele, and the back and sides are jet-black high-pressure textured laminate. The Stratabond neck has a low oval profile with a black Richlite fingerboard 1.6875 inches wide at the nut, and 2.0625 at the 12th fret. Sheeran's signature Plus sign is laser-etched into the tapered headstock, which features tuning gears matched to the guitar's black sides and back. A single-ring Boltaron rosette accents the elegant, naturally finished top.

Fishman Isys Onboard

The built-in Fishman Isys T onboard preamp system and Sonicore pickup ensures that the fantastic tone of this guitar is perfectly represented when plugged in. It's one of Fishman's most high-end pickup systems, loaded with features that help you control a wide range of tonal nuance. The Ed Sheeran Martin LX1E has a pre-wired Fishman Sonicore undersaddle transducer, and side mounted control panel with Tuner, Volume, Contour knob and Phase buttons. A low battery indicator keeps you on top of your power supply, while the design offers easy battery access when it's time to switch them out.

Many Ways to Make The World a Better Place

Martin created the LX1E Ed Sheeran to reflect the charitable spirit of the artist for whom it was named. As a way of giving back, Martin has promised that a portion of the proceeds from the sales from these LX1Es will be donated to East Anglia's Children's Hospices. East Anglia's is a UK-based charity that Sheeran enthusiastically supports. It provides care and support to children and young persons facing life-threatening conditions in numerous counties. With the acronym "EACH" carved into the top of the guitar, you'll be reminded of your (and Ed's) charity every time you play your Ed Sheeran Martin.

Product Description

Designed in collaboration with the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum singer-songwriter, and brand ambassador, the Martin LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature Edition features Ed's personal artistic details on the headstock, including his signature fluorescent orange "+" plus sign and "est. 1991", which represents the name of his platinum-selling album and year Sheeran was born respectively.

Additionally, the "+" plus sign logo is laser-etched on the solid sapele top, which signifies the title of his platinum-selling debut album. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this model will be donated to East Anglia's Children's Hospices (www.each.org.uk ), a UK-based charity Sheeran supports and is passionate about.

The organization, whose Royal Patron is The Duchess of Cambridge, supports families and cares for young children and young people with life-threatening conditions and provides services across several UK counties, including Suffolk, where Sheeran was raised."It was a huge privilege to have the opportunity to collaborate with Martin Guitar," said Ed Sheeran.

"I have been a fan of Martin since I started playing guitar and songwriting, and I am honored to have a Signature Edition that bears my own personal imprint. All of the royalties from every purchase from my Signature Edition will go to the East Anglia Children's Hospices. 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!""We are so proud to have such a prolific and credible artist as Ed Sheeran join the Martin Guitar family," said Amani Duncan, Vice President of Brand Marketing for Martin.

"One of our marketing objectives at Martin is to spread our dynamic culture, history and brand to new consumers worldwide and Ed is the perfect Ambassador to help us achieve this. We cannot wait to present our latest collaborative Artist Signature Edition to his fans and ours across the world this summer."

"We're absolutely delighted that EACH will benefit from the sales of this special guitar and we'd like to thank Ed, C.F. Martin & Co, and absolutely everyone involved in the project," said Graham Butland, EACH Chief Executive. "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."

The LX1E has been Ed Sheeran's guitar of choice since his early teens. In the span of just two years, Sheeran's career has catapulted him from a rising star in his native UK, where he was nominated in 2012 for multiple music awards and won two Brit awards, to global success including a massive fan base and critical acclaim in the US.

Sheeran and his favorite LX1E Martin guitar have also graced prestigious stages worldwide, from the London Summer Olympics opening ceremony in 2012 to the 2013 Grammy Awards, teaming up with Sir Elton John. Following an industry unveiling at Summer NAMM on July 11, Ed Sheeran will unveil his LX1E Ed Sheeran Signature Edition to his U.S. fan base when he performs on the TODAY SHOW Summer Concert series on Friday July 12.

Fans can catch Sheeran and his new Martin model on the road through the end of 2013 with tourmate Taylor Swift.
