Summer NAMM: New Martin Guitars

Besides the Ed Sheeran signature guitar, Martin has released three new models at Summer NAMM:

CEO-7: Inspired by Martin's successful "Golden Era®" 00 models that sparked guitar manufacturers to introduce their own models made popular by this body style, the CEO-7 features a sunburst finish, golden age tuners and authentic headplate lettering. This new 14-fret short scale 00 "Sloped Shoulder" model features a solid Adirondack spruce top with solid genuine mahogany back and sides for complex tonality. Retail price: $2999.00

CEO and Chairman Chris Martin, told us, "The latest CEO-7 model is a tribute to a time when flat top steel string acoustic guitar design was evolving very quickly. The market was very competitive as demand for fourteen fret neck instruments was rapidly growing. At that time the Dreadnought was not yet the dominant shape and the smaller tight-waisted models influenced by the parlor guitars of the prior century were still quite popular."

000RS1: A great solid-wood Martin at an affordable price - the 000RS1 is the newest addition to the successful Road Series. Constructed with solid sapele and equipped with Fishman Sonitone electronics, this stage-ready Auditorium model produces the perfect blend of volume and balance. Retail price: $999.00

Grand J12-16GTE: Classic styling at an affordable price, the Grand J12-16GTE features a 17" grand jumbo body along with D-TAR Wave-Length Multi-Source electronics. The powerful yet defined sound and easy playability makes this a great choice for any 12 string enthusiast. Retail price: $1999.00

Pricing and Availability:

CEO-7: $2999.00

000RS1: $999.00

Grand J12-16GTE: $1999.00
