The future of guitar making.
Part of Martin's ongoing series of responsible stewardship guitars, the Special Edition 000CE AL Cherry could well represent the future of guitar making. All parts of the guitar are made from environmentally sustainable, certified renewable woods and alternative materials (the AL is for "alternative"). This includes American cherry back, sides, and blocks, basswood ribbons and braces, katalox fingerboard and bridge, maple bridge plate, and an aluminum top. The 000CE AL also features a Fishman Aero Blend onboard preamp system that includes built-in tuner, Sonicore pickup and microphone/pickup blender.

Comments about Martin 000CE Al Cherry Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I?ve played guitar for 15 years and I own a Martin HD28V, D16RGT, and 000 18. I played this guitar for about 5 min. at the Martin Factory in PA. I thought an Aluminum top would sound terrible, and I was right. This guitar sounds awful! Even with new strings and proper setup, this guitar sounds like a $150.00 Laminate special. I?d describe the tone as Tinny and weak. The action of the guitar was very good, and the quality of finish was first class, everything was perfect constructed. Metal guitars are not the future; there are plenty of responsible ways to construct guitars from traditional materials. If you need a green friendly/tree free guitar, look at a Rain Song, All carbon fiber, they sound great, or an Ovation, wood tops, but composite back sides and sometimes neck. Martin disappoints me greatly with this embarrassing guitar.
