The first and perhaps the only internet resource for Roger Waters gear (and Richard Wright gear, and Chris Rea gear, and Andy Summers gear). Or more likely a poor man's answer to ;-)

C. F. Martin 000-ECHF Bellezza Nera (Eric Clapton)

Posted on 23/09/2011 by ozzy in Guitars

2006 - Present

Roger Waters used this guitar during the Dark Side of the Moon Live tour (2006 - 2008) and during The Wall Live tour (2010 - 2012). He has two of these.

C. F. Martin 000-ECHF Bellezza Nera (Eric Clapton)

C. F. Martin 000-ECHF Bellezza Nera was developed jointly by Eric Clapton and a Japanese trendsetter Hiroshi Fujiwara. At Eric Clapton's suggestion, the model is named in Italian - "Bellezza" meaning beautiful and "Nera" meaning black.

This Limited Edition guitar has black body, neck and headplate, and matching African black ebony fingerboard and bridge, and the specially made sterling silver-plated Schaller tuners with sterling silver-plated buttons. The fingerboard features Martin's Style 45 snowflake inlays, with "Bellezza Nera" inlaid in script above the last fret in mother of pearl. This guitar comes without a pickguard.

The body top is Italian alpine spruce, the back and sides are crafted from East Indian rosewood. Carved from solid mahogany, the neck features Martin's diamond volute at the base of the headstock.

Bellezza Nera includes a special black interior label personally signed by Eric Clapton, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Martin Artist Relations head Dick Boak and Martin Chairman C.F. Martin IV.
