Can anyone tell me what Martin model my vintage Cat's Eyes CE800T is replicating?

Thank you

I'm not sure. I believe it was built in the 1970s. Also, it's just the body. It's not a complete guitar. It was never finished by Tokai. It's pretty amazing actually! It has amazing tap tone.

I'd attach a photo but I don't see how to do that.

The reason I want to ID the Martin model it replicates is so I can hunt down a Martin/Sigma neck to put on it.

Since starting this thread I learned more about the dimensions of Martin's O, OO, and OOO models. This CE800T is the exact dimensions in the lower bout and scale length of a Martin OO.

Thanks!

Sorry this took me so long. Here's a link to a gallery of photos of my uncompleted Tokai CE800T.

https://michael-mcbride.smugmug.com/Tokai-Cats-Eyes-CE800T/n-sVBk77

I'd like to complete it but I have no idea how to go about that.

And I'm curious which model of Martin guitar Tokai was duplicating.

All comments welcomed!

Thanks!
Michael

Did you check the Cat's eyes 'specs chart' I posted before?

Thanks, Felixcatus! I didn't realize there was a link. It confirms my CE800T is a replica of a Martin OOO-28. I recently learned that Martin and Tokai were collaborating on creating these copies. It's an amazing build! I'm hoping I can get a OOO-28 neck to complete it.

Or, I just might sell the body as is to someone who wants to finish the build themselves.

Michael
