The new Martin CEO-6 Special Edition is 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 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, according to the company.

 

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, according to Martin & Co.

 

The CEO-6 is a player’s guitar with a Performing Artist neck profile designed 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.

 

This is a guitar available in a polished lacquer natural finish as standard or in a “tear drop” sunburst finish at no extra charge. The top is 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.
