The article was written by Trevor Dawkins, Ed's sound engineer. "Ed Sheeran essentially plays two Martin Guitar models. The larger models are a pair of 00-28VS customs that Martin put together for us. They’re absolute beauts: figured Koa back and sides, the gecko inlays on the neck (copies of one of Ed’s tattoos . . . ), and the inlaid koa “X” logo on the soundboard. These are fitted with Fishman Matrix Infinity electronics and are used for Ed's acoustic ballad-type songs." From watching live videos, Ed has 4 copies of this guitar. One has black bridge pins, another has white, and the other two have no gecko inlays on the neck.more
