My 2015 CEO-7 is at the local authorized repair station for the binding separation problem so 2015 isnít safe either. From what Iíve read the problem with the glue was fixed in 2016.

I also didnít like the tuners and swapped them out for Gotohís.

But other than that I love my CEO-7. I bought it new in June 2015. Until last month when it went into the shop it got 95% of my playing time. With it in the shop I am rediscovering my long neglected Martin OM-21.
