Showcasing a rare Adirondack spruce top, the CEO-7 Golden Era acoustic guitar is reminiscent of models from Martin's pre-WWII era. Dynamic and exhibiting complex overtones, the CEO-7 provides a high ceiling for volume - strum all you want, you won't overplay it! The CEO-7's solid mahogany back and sides balance its tone perfectly, lending a thick, organic midrange to your playing. Generous appointments, including grained ivoroid binding and black Boltaron inlays, ensure that the CEO-7 is truly a historic acoustic instrument. Here at Music Experience, we fell head over heels for the Martin CEO-7 Golden Era the first time we played its cozy, select hardwood neck!

Martin's Golden Era

Martin guitars from the "Golden Era" (pre-World War II) are some of the most prized and coveted instruments on the planet. The CEO-7 Golden Era embodies the spirit of those classic guitars with top-grade tonewoods and period-correct touches. And the sound is rich yet detailed, with incredible focus and balanced tonality. The CEO-7's sound and robust projection make it ideal for live performance as well as recording. In addition, the CEO-7 is great for aggressive strumming or subtle fingerpicking — bluegrass, folk, even acoustic rock sound great on the CEO-7.

Quality tonewoods produce amazing tone

A quality acoustic guitar is all about the wood, and the CEO-7 Golden Era delivers no-compromise quality. The top is composed of rare solid Adirondack spruce. Similar to high-elevation European alpine spruce, this wood was abundant in the 1930s and used on the Martin guitars of that era. Its extraordinary tone, prized for its dynamic projection and tonal clarity, contributes significantly to the CEO-7's sound. The back and sides are composed of solid genuine mahogany, which provides the CEO-7 with a thick and meaty character. Rich with magnificent harmonic overtones, the CEO-7's tone tends to bloom, giving your sound extra depth. Additionally, a select hardwood neck with solid black ebony fingerboard gives the CEO-7 awesome playing ease to match its awesome sound!
