The secret to the Martin CEO-7s gorgeous aesthetics lies in the name - drawing inspiration from pre-war 'Golden Era' '00' series that helped soldify Martin as the ultimate American parlor and blues guitar brand since 1920.
Classic Martin tone that just gets better with age
Reminiscent of models from the Golden Era of Martin Acoustics, the CEO-7 features a sunburst finish, golden age tuners and authentic headplate lettering. Designed by Chris Martin, this new 14-fret short scale 00 “sloped shoulder” model features a solid Adirondack spruce top with solid genuine mahogany back and sides for complex tonality.
Other appointments include a straightline bridge with drop-in saddle, bone nut, dovetail neck joint, X-scalloped bracing, a modified V neck, and Old Style 18 positioning inlays, grained ivoroid heelcap, and a Delmar tortoise color pickguard.
