I really didnt think that the acoustic one would sound very good, but i was wrong! I dont like the looks of the electric, i think i'd stick with the good ol' plank.

I like the looks of the second one and the last is cool except for the headstock is hideous. The rest...let's say they could have done better...

I've seen carbon fibre cellos before and they sound better than handmade wooden ones. I assume a guitar made of c.f. would sound outstanding.

An excellent feature os the CF guitars is their resistance to moisture, temperature change, and humidity.

Great for camping or just playing in the rain, I guess.

I tried looking it up on youtube but couldn't find, I recall a Rainsong acoustoc demo with a guy filling it up with water and playing with it for a while.

I think they also did that at a NAMM show a while back when these were new.

you can probably get some sheets of carbon and some resin and lay it over your guitar body (bare of course) and still have a natural sound

Not to mention they won't break if you drop them....Huge fan of wood guitars but I do love the CF stuff.

I've played a Gus... They're amazing instruments; absolutely beautiful. From what I remember the one I played had a cedar core; not sure if they're still like that. It sounded beautiful though.

CF definitely has its benefits...you dont need to worry about dropping the guitar, temperature changes, or even humidity. Some of those electrics are really thin though...that would take some getting used to. I really want to try one of these now...

Some of the Steinberger models have CF necks and I know a guy with a full bodied CF Steinberger... It looks, feels and sounds amazing.

Interesting. If i find something like this that i can try I definatley will now....although i think those shapes are kinda fugly :P

I can see some people liking them, but personally I feel a guitar should be made from these;




Occasionally with an aluminum neck.

only the best guitars have knots in the woods

/devries reference.

anyway needs more uni-directional carbon fibre and needs to be painted to resemble a normal guitar sorta

Steinberger's are techincally not carbon fiber but a graphite/carbon fiber blend, there's a slight difference.

My steinberger has a graphite blend neck; they're brilliant instruments.

If I was having a custom guitar built, I'd definately consider a carbon fibre neck-thru with mahogany or some other wood for the wings.

I have tried the acoustic, there was a used one in my guitarcenter. I wasn't a big fan of the looks, but it sounds phenomenal. Easily the fullest sounding acoustic aI have ever played in my life.

The first one is almost as ugly as those "Holy V's" and "Holy Explorer's" from Gibson.
YUCK!

And I like how in the video, there's two of those same guitars around the guy playing one.

i've played some highend rainsong acoustics in guitarcenter and they sound incredible. Never played any other carbon fiber guitars so i cant really comment on any of the other brands.
