Carbon fiber guitars have a great lasting sound and really are the best guitars for traveling. These guitars are much more sturdy and will stay that way for a lot longer than wood. The way they are constructed takes all the credit for this. Guitar makers have swapped out the traditional wooden body for carbon fiber adding unbeatable strength.
Carbon Fiber Guitars?
In a 2009 article titled A Buyer’s Guide to Carbon-Fiber Instruments featured in the music magazine “All Things Strings”, a prediction was made that carbon fiber would begin replacing wood in string instruments in the low price range.
When the new guitars arrived at my door I had trouble believing that an acoustic instrument could actually fit in such a small box. Journey Instruments had agreed to send me two guitars to test – one solid-top wood guitar and one carbon fiber guitar – and I honestly had no idea what to expect.
What was it that sparked my interest in travel guitars? I’m traveling on beach vacation in a couple weeks and I am facing a tough decision. Should I lug my massive full-sized guitar all the way across the ocean or just leave it at home and not have anything?
