I have a CEO-7. I wish it was a slothead, but I don't want a 12-fret. I hate the junky tuners on it, otherwise great guitar.

I'm going to let the D-15sm Custom go as the neck is just too slender for me and it aggravates my arthritis. It's the Martin modified low oval, which I believe is their most popular neck shape these days. But in a Martin I need the Modified V, as in my D-18VS.<br /> <br /> Too bad, as the tone is really something else. Hard to find the right words to describe it, but "ethereal" might come close.

I'm with you on the Martin Modified V, great neck. I had a 15 Series 000 with the modified low oval. It sounded nice, but the neck was just a little thin front to back.

Martin is using the Low Profile neck on a lot of their standard guitars (D-35, D-28, D-45, etc.).<br /> <br /> I have the D-35, and also have a D-18, which has the Modified Low Oval - which is a bit heftier than the Low Profile (which I have on my D-35). The D-18 ahs the wider 1 3/4" nut (versus 1 11/16" on other Standards), but it's also definitely a bit thicker from front to back.<br /> <br /> I get along with both, but the D-18's Modified Low Oval is my favorite of the two. I can get along with a soft V, but I don't like hard V necks.

I'm also going to let my Eastman E10P Sunburst go. In fact, I'll post it over in the FDP Classifieds shortly.<br /> <br /> It's a great little guitar and I love the big ol' chunky neck. But we're moving soon and I want to reduce the number of guitars I have to haul to the new house in the new state.<br /> <br /> But once my cash flow recovers, I'd like to buy a Santa Cruz 1929 00 to replace the Eastman. The Eastman was an experiment to find out if I like the parlor size or not, and the answer is a resounding YES!
