Martin Guitars is on a roll this year, introducing a bevy of new guitars, including the stunning D-16E, D-2000 Deluxe and the beautiful CEO 8.2E grand jumbo. Now the company has announced preorder sales for a new Ed Sheeran guitar, the Divide Signature Edition. Following previous Plus and X acoustics, the Divide model features Sheeran’s trademark LX1E Little Martin body size, with mahogany patterned HPL back and sides and a spruce top. Other Sheeran-approved features include a custom acoustic blue rosette, laser-engraved divide symbols across the fingerboard and headstock, black HPL headplate with album artwork, divide fret markers, a rust-coloured neck and Custom interior label. The guitar is stage-ready, too, thanks to Fishman Sonitone electronics. A nylon gigbag is also included.
Martin’s Ed Sheeran Divide Signature Edition will be available later this year, in both right- and left-handed configurations, for £649/$699. For more information visit www.martinguitar.com
