SOLD - New Composite Acoustics GX-HG - Composite Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar

Every day we go to work in a shop full of the best wooden acoustic guitars known to man. And here we are selling synthetic instrument. Sacrilege, you say? Not at all. Composite guitars fill a niche for many of our customers. They play great, sound surprisingly full and warm, and are all but impervious to humidity changes, temperature fluctuations, and other dangerous phenomena. Take 'em anywhere that you'd be afraid to take your handcrafted wooden beauties... the beach, your boat, camping, Chuck E. Cheese's... For that matter, use them on any live gig. You'll be amazed how good they sound amplified. (Also see the short-scale CA "cargo" model that we stock.)

Dream Guitars Player's Review:
"CA makes the perfect guitar for travel, gigging and outdoor play. But they are also extremely satisfying so you may find you play it as much as your traditional 'wooden' guitars. I have one that goes to many jam sessions and campfires and I love it." - Paul Heumiller

"I'm extremely impressed with the CA guitars. They've managed to make a very playable instrument that sounds great when played acoustic or amplified using it's L.R. Baggs pickup system. And, at a price that is very affordable. There is nothing in this price range that compares." - Al Petteway

"I never would have guessed how good carbon fiber can sound. Is it going to replace your fine, hand-crafted wooden instruments? Of course not. But for its intended purpose it's a great product. Add one of these to your collection and relax a little more at the party, knowing that your bigger investment is safe and sound in its hardshell. " - Al Schlimm

Another Satisfied Dream Guitars Customer:
"I just want to thank you for the fantastic job you did on my guitar. Everything is perfect, and it plays, sounds and looks tremendous. The intonation is vastly improved--I've played a lot of old Martins, and I've never played one (including this one) that needed so little adjustment when capoed. The binding repair is almost undetectable, and I never thought that top finish could be fixed as you did. If you ever need a reference, let me know! I look forward to seeing and hearing what you do on the mandolin." - Dave H., North Carolina
