Michael Smith of Composite Acoustics walks you through the Cargo model, the company’s new travel guitar.

The Cargo is built entirely from carbon composites, from bridge to nut and including the fretboard. The one-piece construction, including carbon-fiber bracing used for acoustics, results in an instrument that sounds like a full-sized guitar.


In addition to the tonal properties, this is a guitar that can withstand a hot day at the beach or a chilly evening at an air-conditioned venue.
