2015 Martin Custom Shop CEO

An exotic and extremely rare guitar from Martin’s own Custom Shop, from 2015. It has a unique body size for a Martin, essentially taken from the contours of Gibson’s famed 1930s L-0 and L-00 series, a shape that we’ve all admired and loved for years. Unlike the Gibsons though, 99% of which had mahogany backs and sides, this gorgeous guitar, one of only five made exactly like it, has perfectly straight-grained Indian rosewood back and sides with a gorgeous, highly-figured Koa center panel in its back. The soundhole rosette is accented by a traditional Martin heart-of-abalone ring with B/W/B marquetry accents around it to set if off from Martin’s incomparable sunburst finish. The neck is of course Martin’s traditional solid one-piece genuine mahogany, with ebony fingerboard and bridge and bone nut and compensated saddle. The fingerboard inlays are heart-of-abalone shell to match the soundhole rosette, and the tuners are traditional style but with a much more modern (and accurate!) 16-1 gear ratio. The entire body is bound in grained Ivoroid, a really nice touch, and the heelcap and end plate are Ivoroid as well. What more could you possibly ask for in a super-comfortable, Custom Martin? Near-mint condition, that’s what; not a scratch on it and literally no fret wear. And to top it off, an unbeatable price; MSRP was originally more than $4,000, now offered here, for you, at only $2495 w/ohsc
