Magnificent Mango Martin Makes Marvelous Mellow Music

Specs include: 14-fret Slope-Shoulder Grand Concert 00L size; all-solid wood construction, including curly mango back, sides, and top, 1/4″ scalloped Adirondack spruce braces, Genuine Mahogany neck with Modified V profile and traditional hand-fitted dovetail neck joint; ebony fretboard with Standard Taper, 1-3/4″ width at the solid bone nut, 2-1/4″ at 12th fret, Corian Style 42 position markers; ebony pyramid bridge with 2-5/16″ string spacing at the compensated solid bone saddle; Liquidmetal® bridge pins; composite carbon fiber/VTS Adirondack spruce bridge plate; Antique white binding on body and neck; faux tortoise pickguard and headstock face plate; Mango Sunset Sunburst top shading; full gloss body finish and satin neck finish; copper-color vintage-style open back tuners with butter bean knobs.

“For having the warm, full-bodied undertone provided by a solid mango wood soundboard, the CEO-9 shows off clear and glistening trebles, mid-range notes that punch with distinctly defined edges, and a plump bass that can get quite throaty and as round as a bullfrog. But they never get lost in the depths of the rich, bulbous bottom end.”
