How does a 22 year old have a signature guitar already? Well, not only was the young singer-songwriter featured on Taylor Swift's mega-succesful Red album and as her opening act on her tour, but his own album, simply titled +, garnered two Brit Awards for Best British Male and British Breakthrough. It's top single, "The A Team" won him the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, as well as a Song of the Year Grammy nomination. He was also one of the writers behind One Direction's #1 "Little Things" and collaborator on their forthcoming album. He's already made it, and it doesn't look like he's slowing down. Neither should you. Pick up this special guitar today.

- A Lot Of Sustain
- Great Top
- No flaws
Comments about Martin LX1E Ed Sheeran Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Well made and great sound. The sustain is great. A much better sound than I was expecting from such a small guitar. Blows me away when plugged in. I am curious to try it with light strings instead of the stock O.E. medium. I am afraid it won't sound the same. Overall I am extremely please.
