John Mayer’s Martin 000-ECHF Bellezza Nera

This guitar was seen in the music video for the song ‘Half of My Heart’ from the 2009 album, ‘Battle Studies’, and on a home video that John recorded in Japan in 2010. [John Mayer – Half of My Heart (Tokyo Acoustic Version)] Unfortunately, we couldn’t find out if the guitar was used on the studio sessions.

The Martin 000-ECHF, nicknamed Bellezza Nera (meaning Black Beauty in Italian), is an Eric Clapton signature guitar introduced in 2004. The guitar features a solid Italian Alpine spruce top with scalloped 5/16″ bracing, East Indian Rosewood back and sides, ivoroid binding, fine herringbone top trim, custom pearl rosette, ebony bridge, and a custom V-shape neck.

If you’re curious about the original version used by Eric Clapton, on which this model based on, refer to Eric Clapton’s Martin 000-ECHF “Bellezza Nera”.
