In this matchup, I prefer the CEO-7 in a landslide. More forward sounding, much better midrange, and has that 'bell-like' chime and ring. The 000-18 is more mellow sounding. All of these observations I attribute primarily to the Adi top on the CEO-7.

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