Default 2015 Martin CEO7 - (SOLD)

Here’s a great deal on a wonderful Martin CEO-7. I took this in a partial trade a while back, and fell in love. Plays like a dream, and it’s tone is big and woody. $SOLD plus actual shipping (in USA). No trades please.

*Reason for the low price is that the first owner used a leg rest for the guitar, and it was attached via suction cups. The suction cups left marks in the finish of the guitar, pictured. (I've posted three pictures, from different angles, including one with lighting that gives you the maximum visibility.) There is also a small ding on the headstock, also pictured.

Otherwise, it has minimal fretwear, perfect neck set, no structural issues cracks, dents, etc. (The neck is absolutely gorgeous! Also has a K&K mini pickup installed. Comes with original Martin hard case.

One of the nicer CEO7s I've seen, suction cups or no. Irresistable price, great seller!

Does it seem possible the marks could be cleaned off? I can't tell if its residue or if the finish has been worn off.

It’s not residue, and if it could be cleaned off I promise I’d do it. It’s also not down to the bare wood.

The suction cups on the NeckUp device had a chemical reaction with the finish on this guitar, essentially “melting” little rings into the surface of the nitro. I doubt it could be polished out completely, but maybe diminished a bit.

Gotcha. Thought that may be the case. Regardless this is an awesome deal, and if you were accepting trades I'd consider it. Someone is gonna get a great guitar for a great price.
