Product Description

The Martin CEO 6 Special Edition Acoustic Electric is the Sixth in a Series of CEO Specified Features. 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.

Martin CEO 6 Special Edition Acoustic Electric Features

  • 1930's Sloped Shoulder Dreadnought design
  • Solid Red Spruce Adirondack top joined to a premium, bookmatched solid East Indian rosewood body
  • Modified Hybrid A-frame top bracing renowned for a big, yet highly articulate voice
  • Performing Artist neck profile for faster and easier playing in all positions
  • Fishman F1 Aura on-board electronics for amazing replication of the acoustic tone
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 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 Martin's 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 constructed of richlite. Gold Grover tuners with large buttons complete the perfect aesthetic mix.
