Dynamite Custom CEO-7 from Martin Guitars!
In August 2014 the incredibly popular CEO-7 was made available to the Custom Shop to accept orders using it as a baseline model.
Now they arriving in shops, including this beautifully rendered custom CEO-7 at Mandolin Brothers.
(Call them if interested 718 981-8585 – their website is going through an upgrade and is not fully operational at the moment)
This custom CEO-7 won’t stay for sale long. But I hope they get others.
Cocobolo back and sides, natural color Adirondack spruce top, amazing Paua shell for the rosette and Foden-style fretboard markers, which were once exclusive to the special Martin guitars built for William Foden, the world renowned concert soloist and teacher whose career flourished in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
I absolutely LOVE how the slope-shoulder 00 size works with the aesthetic design elements. There is something old-timey, yet new and different – perhaps timeless is the word!
