    Has anyone played or owned the brand name 'Composite Acoustics,' guitar. I would love a guitar not vulnerable to weather/humidity changes.

    My nephew was friends with one of the founders of CA, in Lafayette. He had the 000001 prototype at his house for some reason, and I got to play it.

    I tried to talk him into letting me abscond with it for safekeeping, and split the proceeds (if any) later.

    I was quite impressed with it’s tone. It sure didn’t sound like carbon fiber.

    I didn’t realize that Peavey had bought Composite Acoustics out!

    Yes. I did a Canadian tour using a Cargo model, and it was INCREDIBLE. The overtones were wonderful, the tuning stability was out of SIGHT, and it sounded totally awesome unplugged or plugged in. Just a WONDERFUL guitar.

    I sold it after that tour but wish I hadn’t. I’d like another one.

    TSims1,
    The Cargo , the smaller model, correct? If so, you found it provided the wonderful sound of a larger one?
