An elf costume-clad Rivers Cuomo took to the stage alongside his Weezer bandmates for a live performance of new single A Little Bit of Love on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! And perhaps more notable than his elven attire – which suited the fantasy stage theme – was the acoustic guitar Cuomo called upon to perform the song: Ed Sheeran’s Divide-era Martin signature model.

Cuomo used the small-scale six-string – which is basically a branded version of the Martin LX1E, featuring Divide inlays and headstock logo – for the performance, and put the capo-equipped certified strumming machine to good use on A Little Bit of Love’s folk-y progressions.
