My ears generally prefer Adi over Sitka (I own 3 Adi topped guitars).

Ha! Good point.

Good points. I suspect many happy CEO7 owners feel the same.

That's not a fair fight Maury!!

(Nice sounding D-41, but the Authentic wins by a country mile)

Interesting. I prefer the sound of the 000-18 because it's crisper and I hear better note separation. The CEO-7 sounds a bit muddled on the low end to my ears.

Yet hear (pun intended) I agree with you. That authentic sounds like a great recording guitar.
