Plek setup from the factory

In an effort to offer the best-playing, best-sounding acoustic guitars on the market, Composite Acoustics puts every one of their instruments through a computerized Plek Pro setup. The Plek system takes measurements of each guitar, perfectly levels and crowns each fret, and cuts the string nut at the ideal height and width for a perfectly set up instrument. And thanks to the carbon fiber construction, it stays that way with no variation.

Modern, man-made materials create an ultra-stable instrument

Acoustic guitars made from wood have always been plagued with temperature and climate issues. If it's too humid, your guitar sounds muddy, and if it's too dry, it can experience shrinkage and cracking. And let's not forget that hot and cold can also wreak havoc on your instrument. Composite Acoustics has eliminated all of these annoyances by building an acoustic guitar out of carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is a lightweight and super-strong material used for everything from Formula One race cars to airplanes. Besides being immune to climate and temperature issues, the strength of carbon fiber means you'll never have any "bellying" on the top or ever have to adjust your neck.

Tailored acoustic guitar tone

Another great aspect of the Composite Acoustics Cargo carbon fiber acoustic-electric guitar is its sound. Whether you play it acoustic or electric, the Cargo has a great voice and tonality. Extensive design and testing has led Composite Acoustics to find the perfect formula for amazing acoustic sound. And since every guitar is created using exact tolerances, thanks to modern manufacturing techniques, they all have that killer acoustic voicing. The body and neck are created as a single piece, which gives the Cargo maximum tonal transfer. The top uses carbon fiber bracing to give you the perfect acoustic sound for any style of music. Even the bridge and saddle are precision made from carbon for maximum sound and vibration transfer.

Constructed with laser precision

Modern technology creates greener houses, smaller computers, and more economical cars, so why not a better guitar? Composite Acoustics utilizes the latest in modern production technology to build the Cargo acoustic-electric guitar. These American-made guitars are built to extremely strict tolerances using CNC machines, CAD design, and laser-cutting devices that give you the perfect instrument. The Plek Pro fret-leveling process creates an outstandingly playable fretboard. You won't find a more precisely made guitar on the market than the Composite Acoustics Cargo. Every Composite Acoustics guitar comes with a lifetime warranty.

A hassle-free guitar

Traditionally constructed guitars need lots of care and babying from the elements and climate. The Composite Acoustics Cargo's unique carbon fiber build makes it impervious to weather and climate conditions. You won't have to worry about shrinkage, cracking, or expanding. In fact, you never have to oil your fingerboard or humidify a carbon fiber guitar. Carbon fiber is a stable and ultra-durable material, making it perfect for traveling musicians. The top of the Cargo won't split down the center in dry climates and won't warp or swell in wet climates. The reliability and stability of the Composite Acoustics Cargo is something we at Sweetwater know most guitarists will appreciate. You can keep it in your car all day long no matter what the temperature. The Composite Acoustics Cargo is perfect for camping, festivals, and any outdoor gig.

LR Baggs electronics give you plenty of sonic control

You can shape the sound of your Composite Acoustics Cargo acoustic-electric travel guitar for virtually any scenario with LR Baggs Active Element electronics. The ultra-thin film sensor is only 0.002" thick, which allows it to pick up the nuances of the top's vibration. You get a ton of dynamic range and natural tone.
