    Very cool. I recall someone using carbon fiber(CF) in furniture construction and there are quite a few CF kayaks and canoes. Maybe it will trickle down to us lowly shop rats some day. How about CF guitars?

    The other guitarist in my band has a Rainsong. Beautiful guitar that plays like a dream. Very stable, too. It's not affected by temperature and humidity the way a wooden guitar is. Not cheap, though. I think his cost somewhere around $2200. (I've spent less than that - total - on the 5 or 6 guitars I play at gigs.) Still, he uses his Takamine most often because it sounds better through the PA.
