Plek Pro technology gives you amazing playability

Thanks to Plek Pro technology, the Composite Acoustics Legacy feels and plays like a dream. Reserved for top-dollar custom instruments, this process utilizes a special machine to level a guitar's frets with pinpoint precision. Combining innovative carbon fiber materials with the accuracy of the Plek Pro machine provides you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own.

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 Legacy carbon fiber acoustic-electric guitar is its sound. Whether you play it acoustic or electric, the Legacy has a great voice and tonality. Extensive design and testing have 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 Legacy 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 Legacy 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. Every stage of the process is precision controlled, including the work done by hand. You won't find a more precisely made guitar on the market than the Composite Acoustics Legacy. 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 Legacy'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 Legacy 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 Legacy 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 Legacy is perfect for camping, festivals, and any outdoor gig.

Legacy Rocks!

Bought mine at Sweetwater and I am very glad I dd. This guitar stays in tune through all my situations so far. Hot / cold / damp / dry It is my new favorite over my LTD 2000 Takamine. Sounds great unplugged or wired to the PA. I gig with it indoors and outdoors. Play it at the beach or around the camp fire. The built in tuner and effects are superb. This model comes with a great hardshell case although it would probably be just fine in a gunny sack. Only regret is that I didn't get one of these sooner!
