Default 2018 Martin Custom CEO-7 in Rosewood - $2200

For the Rosewood Lovers out there !!!

Here for sale is a wonderful Martin Custom Shop Sloped Shoulder 00 ! This is a more powerful and articulate version of the mahogany model. I am a big fan of the CEO run as I find them so much nicer sounding than the current Gibson L-00 run. I am the original owner. This guitar has been played lightly around the house and I believe is dent and nick free. It comes with the original martin case and all the case candy. The new owner will be well pleased with the condition and the sound of this particular example! Action is still at factory setting and the frets are in like new condition.
Asking $2200 pp'd and s'd in the 48 states.













Specs From Martin:

Designed by Chris Martin, the CEO-7 is a "00" slope shouldered short scale reminiscent of models from the "Golden Era", with a gorgeous Autumn Sunset Burst finish,Golden Age Relic Nickel 2517 tuners with cream plastic buttons, and authentic headplate lettering. Providing you with a nice booming sound is a solid Adirondack spruce top.Other accoutrements include a striaghtline 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.

I can't believe this hasn't sold... I custom ordered one of these a few years ago. I play mine a lot, Note for note, it is probably the best 00 IRW, Adi topped guitar on the planet...JMHO Oh, and it's super comfortable to play on the recliner...
