Mine might have been a lemon.

Comments about Composite Acoustics Cargo ELE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Despite the very short scale which should have made it lower tension and easier to fret, it was uncomfortable because of too much clearance at the first fret. This also made the G# on the G string sound annoyingly sharp. I've got a guitar with a regular 25.5" scale length that frets better. Maybe a set-up would have fixed everything, but one expects a carbon fiber guitar to arrive with a good set-up.

Comments about Composite Acoustics Cargo ELE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've loved music as long as I can remember. Listening to my mom's 45's on my little green record player was the highlight of my day as a little kid. I've been a serious musician for about 35 years now. Write and record music in my home studio, also a praise leader at a local church.
My main acoustic guitar for the past 15 years or so has been a Alvarez Kazuo Yairi WY-1. It's been back and forth across the globe twice and has served me well. Now, it's either needing some serious work done or retired for home use. I decided to search the web to see my options for a replacement. I was thinking a parlor guitar to fill the #1 spot.
In my search I had accidentally stumbled upon the Composite Acoustics Cargo. The Cargo was off radar. It is categorized a "travel guitar". That term does not fit this guitar at all, IMHO, other than it's a smaller guitar. I've had a few travel guitars over the years; small in size, narrow neck, thin toned, mediocre playability. Something to toss in the back of the car with no worries of the thing being beat. The Cargo is a masterpiece. A stunning guitar in every aspect. From design, tone, fit/finish, playability. It is FLAWLESS. The tone clear, articulate, warm, sustain for days and incredibly dynamic. The neck is perfect and very easy to play all the way up. The intonation is spot on, difficult to do on a short scale guitar. Plugged into my Fishman loudbox, it sounds amazing..
From all the reviews I've read online, I guess you can take this guitar rock climbing, to the beach and even play it in your hot tub. For me, it is now my main guitar, though I'm confident of its toughness to take it anywhere the music goes.
I don't write reviews. I've written a handful in all the years of being a musician. This Composite Acoustics Cargo is worth the time and effort to write this review instead of playing music. Highest rating.
