Comments about Martin CEO-7 Acoustic Guitar:

Chris Martin must have a sense of humor. He made a Gibson Guitar! Well, sort of. At least it looks like a Gibson, but it sounds like a Martin. The price is phenomenal for an instrument that reflects a Golden Era influence. This is also a very comfortable instrument to play, and the modified V neck works out pretty good with the wide neck. I didn't think I would like the neck at first but you get used to it. This is a very intimate guitar, lively and responsive, and there is an elegant simplicity about it that is very appealing.One of the better small bodied guitars I've had my hands on.

Fingerstyle Nirvana

  • Tuners Could Be Better

Comments about Martin CEO-7 Acoustic Guitar:

Buying this guitar for strumming is like getting a Ferrari so you can go to the grocery store. But fingerpickers will take great delight... Mr. Martin has chosen a great set of specs for fingerpicking: 1 3/4" nut width, 00-body, 24.9" scale, and an Adirondack spruce top.

What strikes you immediately is how light this thing is. And then- the loud, clear, bell tone which reminds me of a mini-piano, the Martin voice, loud and clear. The notes are well balanced, not boomy, yet with a lush bass sound, the trebles sparkling.

The only thing that bugs me are the tuners. A guitar this good deserves better ones. I changed them out for some Gotohs, and it's now it's perfect.

            Comments about Martin CEO-7 Acoustic Guitar:

            This guitar lives up to the hype. Google the reviews and nary a negative will be found.
            Sweet dark tone for such a small and light guitar. Beautiful to look at and and the smell is intoxicating. The action is nimble and light. The details in mine were perfect.
            A classic nod to the past well executed.
            I added a K&K Mini Pure to mine and it is even better.
            You won't be disappointed by this one.

            Great little guitar

            By 

            from Pennsylvania

            Pros

            • Best 5 Ply Case
            • Nice Finish
            • Non-foil Headstock Logo
            • Solid Adirondock Top

            Cons

            • Tuners Not So Nice

            Best Uses

              Comments about Martin CEO-7 Acoustic Guitar:

              Very happy with this Martin CEO-7,
              sounds bigger than it is with the unique
              Martin tone. Tuners work ok but have a distressed
              look which is quite out of place on such a stellar
              guitar, I'll replace them soon.

                    These are fantastic. feather light, great big open sound with wonderful balance and sweetness. the round V neck is a dream. May be Martin's best offering yet IMO.
