Each generation of the Martin family has made a lasting contribution to the quality and innovativeness of Martin guitars. And Chris Martin, the sixth generation Martin to head the company, is no exception. From the outset, Chris has embraced modern technology and its application to guitar making, including computer assisted carving machines, hybrid bracing systems, high-tech finishes, alternative materials, sustainable "smart wood" sources and the like. At the same time, Chris has been a fierce guardian of the Martin heritage, blending traditional building methods with the new technology to make guitars of extraordinary tone, beauty, finesse, responsiveness and stability. The new Martin CEO-6 Special Edition is the latest example of his ingenuity. Based on the early "Sloped Shoulder" Dreadnought design originated by Martin in the 1930s, the 14-fret CEO-6 features a solid wood Red Spruce "Adirondack" top (just like original design) joined to a body of premium, bookmatched solid East Indian rosewood. The slope shoulder body size, or "S" (for "special" as the more elongated body was later referred to), was considered to be one of the best sounding Martins by C. F. Martin III, Chris's grandfather and mentor. But Chris Martin has added his own special tonal features to the CEO-6, including Modified Hybrid A-frame top bracing developed under his direction. It, too, is renowned for its exceptional tonal capabilities, with a big, yet highly articulate voice. Above all, the CEO-6 is a player's guitar with our unique Performing Artist neck profile for faster and easier playing in all positions. It also has wider, more comfortable string spacing on the 1930 style belly bridge. Bone nut and bridge pins, and a Tusq™ compensated long saddle add resonance and sustain. Played fully acoustic or plugged into its Fishman F1 Aura™ on-board electronics, the CEO-6 delivers all the classic Martin tone, subtlety – and volume – you want. This is an especially beautiful guitar, available in a highly polished lacquer natural finish as standard or in a spectacular "tear drop" sunburst finish at no extra charge. The top is elegantly bound in vintage grained ivoroid and has a faux tortoise beveled and polished pickguard. Fingerboard and bridge are select black ebony. Gold Grover tuners with large buttons complete the perfect aesthetic mix.For more information, visit www.martinguitar.com.
