Thread Name: Martin CEO IV Guitar -- Opinions?
Subject: RE: Martin CEO IV Guitar -- Opinions?
John Hardly, thanks for the "hands on opinion". My J 45 is a a "Cherry Burst" as well, almost no darkeness in it. Just red and orange and yellow. I'm looking for a guitar I feel comfortable traveling with and that looks presentable on stage.    My old Gibson looks like 40 miles of bad road, now. The modern J45s seem to be 1 3/4 inches at the nut, not my favorite, but I don't know about that limited edition you're talking about. The Santa Cruz is more than double the $1566 I can get the Martin for, and I can't get off 4 grand for the SC now and maybe never!

Don Meixner, "Phil Ochs"! I hear you, Don, but no modern J45, or Dove or Hummingbird that I have found sounds remotely (or potentially) like my J45. Now if I can find that limited edition John's talking about...

Sorry about the blue cliky, here's another.Click here
