Why not spread the cost?


Lovingly built in Santa Cruz, California by Ed Claxton, this 2001 EM-C acoustic guitar is in incredible condition for its near-vintage age and plays like a dream. With its European Spruce top, and an incredible set of Figured Koa for its back and sides, this guitar has defined note clarity and complex overtones. Claxton’s custom rosette and unique pickguard design give the EM-C its signature look alongside its clean “inlay-free” fretboard and peghead, as well as a host of meticulous aesthetic appointments. The nature of this guitar’s cutaway design and “Slim C” neck profile create a comfortable playing experience for any style of player. Between incredible woods, and diligent craftsmanship that shines through in both its visual and sonic qualities, this Ed Claxton EM-C is hard to beat.
