Don’t be fooled by the looks OR size of this guitar! These things have massive tone and are made from very special materials! Yes, CA guitars are hand-built in the USA out of carbon fiber. What does this mean for you? It means more stability and no loss of tone! This employee was taken aback the first time he heard one of these guitars. Due to the lack of wood, this guitar is not affected by harsh climates and weather changes like a typical acoustic might be. You need to try one to believe it! And look at that travel size!
