Overview

The acoustic-electric 000C-28 Andy Summers Signature Edition Martin guitar features a top with a unique black/white chevron checkered binding, while the back showcases a Style 45 multicolored back strip with distinctive black fiber borders. Accenting the soundhole is a triple-ring rosette with a central ring of fine herringbone. The back and sides are bound in ivoroid, the latter with mitered black/white fine line purfling. In a salute to Martin history ” and because the combination looks so elegant ” a black African ebony pyramid bridge graces the top, but a pickguard does not.

Up the neck, the solid, square tapered headstock combines Martin's antique pressure stamp on the back with an ivoroid bound, black/white mitered black African ebony headplate inlaid with the Lotus flower, the Buddhist symbol of purity, on the front. The matching ivoroid bound and mitered black African ebony fingerboard is inlaid in mother of pearl with Buddhist "Mudra" (hand gesture) position markers at the 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th and 15th frets, the yin/yang symbol at the 17th fret and Andy Summer's signature between the 19th and 20th frets.

Exquisite premium solid tonewoods add to the beauty of this guitar and contribute to its superb tone. The top is crafted from Italian alpine spruce, renown for its warmth, balance and impressive dynamic range, and matched to 5/16" scalloped bracing for clear definition. East Indian rosewood back and sides add outstanding projection. A one-piece neck of genuine mahogany contributes structural strength and stability.

Several design elements make the 000C-28 Andy Summers Signature Edition a player's delight. The short 24.9" scale, 1-3/4" (at the nut) neck with modified low oval profile and low action allow for easy fretting, even on difficult chords. The 000 cutaway body insures full fingerboard access and playing comfort both sitting and standing (a chrome strap button is installed at the neck heel). Waverly open-geared nickel tuners with butterbean knobs contribute smooth, precise tuning. The factory installed Fishman Ellipse„¢ Blend electronics with a mic/under-saddle pickup combination and on board controls allow effortless amplification.

The crowning touch to the 000C-28 Andy Summers Signature Edition is the finish. Polished gloss lacquer finish on the guitar's body highlights both the elegant appointments and the golden top. The headplate likewise features a gloss finish, while the neck receives a satin finish.

Delivered in a Geib-style hardshell case, each Martin 000C-28 Andy Summers Signature Edition guitar bears an interior label personally signed by Andy Summers and Martin Chairman, C. F. Martin IV, and is numbered in sequence with the edition total.
