F. Martin IV.
The CEO series guitar was created by C.F.Martin IV since 1997. So far, a total of eight models have been launched, and CEO-8 was launched in 2015. This series is presented to you by Mr. C.F. Martin, based on Martin’s family heritage, based on the design of a new guitar that represents Martin’s cutting-edge technology and craftsmanship.
The body of the CEO-8 is the largest treasure of Martin. It was first launched by Martin Company (J), the earliest market was in 1930, and then Gibson introduced the J-200 in 1939. Today, Jumbo J-type guitar has become synonymous with “King of the Strings” and “Volume Champion”.
The neck of the CEO-8 and the back and sides are made of sycamore. Sycamore wood is a kind of precious wood. It was first used by humans and can be traced back to the manufacture of palace artifacts in ancient Egypt. It is a very good quality wood for making musical instruments. The top uses Sitka Spruce and uses VTS technology. The headstock is inlaid with Martin LOGO, a natural jewel-grade mother-of-pearl. Warm enamel pickguard with a Martin motif. The grade mark on the fingerboard section is inlaid with a selection of backslash jewel-grade mother-of-pearl.
The pickup system is equipped with the D-TAR Wave-length Multi-Source pickup system. The internal label has an independent limited number serial number and is autographed by Mr. C. F. Martin IV.
The CEO-8 not only attracts the performers with exquisite materials and exquisite craftsmanship, but also has a golden period sound that makes you drool. Because it also applies a new patented technology unique to Martin, the VTS Vintage tone system. This technology, like a time machine, uses a specific aged material and structure to perfectly reproduce the sound and taste of the classic era. Before this technology is available, it takes a lot of money to get a classic vintage Martin guitar. For the Martin guitar produced in the 1930s, the average price of the auction was tens of millions. Now, you only need a Martin guitar with VTS technology to achieve the classic vintage sound you want.
