The left-handed OM-ECHF Navy Blues is the third in a series of collaborations between C. F. Martin & Co., Eric Clapton and Eric's multi-talented friend/associate in Japan, Hiroshi Fujiwara. Prior ECHF models included the popular "Bellezza Nera" (Black Beauty) and the "Bellezza Bianca" (White Beauty). While these two models featured a shorter 24.9" scale length, this OM edition incorporates the longer 25.4" scale for added string tension and tonal projection. The neck and body are lacquered and polished with a striking dark navy coloration atop East Indian rosewood back and sides and a European spruce soundboard. Each OM-ECHF Navy Blues guitar includes an interior label, individually numbered and personally signed by Eric Clapton, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Dick Boak and C. F. Martin IV.
Includes 533E Geib Style case.
