Thread Name: Martin CEO IV Guitar -- Opinions?
Subject: RE: Martin CEO IV Guitar -- Opinions?
no. The CEO-5 is a completely different animal. The CEO-5 is a 12 fret, slotted headstock dreadnaought that has striped ebony fretboard and bridge, bearclaw sitka top, and sapele (mahogany) b&s. The CEO-5 was at least in part the product of a forum discussion (between Chris Martin IV and forum regulars) on Acoustic Guitar Magazine's "Guitar Talk" forum. It came into production a year later than the CEO-4.
I like the CEO-5 considerably more than the "4".
