Fishman electronics in a groundbreaking acoustic.

Carbon fiber has been used in musical instrument making in the past and it continues to expand into a variety of new areas. One of its most successful applications has been in acoustic guitar construction.

A rigid one-piece neck/body construction for long-term stability, and its imperviousness to climate results in consistent performance, wherever you go. It features a 14 fret to the body Carbon fiber neck for consistent playability (No truss rod adjustments needed, EVER!), a slender ergonomic design (voiced to extend low end response) and a 15 degree headstock pitch.

It is available with 1.75” nut width or new “Narrow Neck” 1.69” nut width, and boasts a proprietary carbon fiber bridge and saddle materials for maximum sound transfer. A center sound hole with abalone sound hole ring accents the top beautifully.

Performance tuned lightweight carbon fiber bracing, ultra-precise tuning machines with 18:1 ratio, Proprietary Reinforced Polymer Fretboard with 20 medium stainless steel frets, top dots & side dots, handcrafted in the USA by skilled technicians and craftsmen. Hardshell case included, ships with Elixr® Nanoweb® strings, .012-.053

      Comments about Composite Acoustics L 3011 Legacy Acoustic Guitar:

      I have been a huge CA fan since the early 2000s and have owned several and currently own a pre-Peavey Legacy COT, a pre-Peavey GX, and an older pre-2005 pre-Peavey Vintage Performer with 1.69" nut width. In 2015 I ordered a custom COT Legacy through Artisan guitars. When I finally received the guitar, (after shipping mishaps thanks to Artisan shipping the guitar to an address where I'd lived many years earlier), I noticed the playability compared to my pre-Peavey CA Guitars was horrible. I contacted Peavey repeatedly and the CA factory and told them I had trouble playing the guitar. They said it was just the saddle and sent me more saddles and Artisan Guitars did too. None of that fixed the situation and I left the guitar in its case and barely took it out. About a month ago I got it out again and tried to play it and still hated the action. I then got out my pre-Peavey GX and it played fantastic. I compared them and realized the necks were very different, although Peavey claims they're not. I then got out my gauge and a steel rule and measured the nuts. Sure enough, the pre-Peavey GX had a 1.75" nut just as advertised, however the Peavey CA COT Legacy only had a 1.69" nut width. I am 6'4" and have big hands and can't play a narrow nut guitar well. I contacted Artisan and the CA factory and Peavey, including Hartley Peavey himself. I got nothing but the run around.


      Not as good as pre-Peavey Composite Acoustic Guitars.

          Comments about Composite Acoustics L 3011 Legacy Acoustic Guitar:

          I wrote a review above regarding my pre-Peavey Composite Acoustic Legacy. The pre-Peavey model is outstanding, however, I bought a CUSTOM legacy COT model and the playability is terrible even though it is supposed to be set up with Plek system. I complained repeatedly to Peavey and they just sent me new saddles. After not being able to get the guitar to play as well as my many other acoustics, including per-Peavey CAs and Takamine EF369 TT, Martins D18s, or even Seagulls, I compared the new Legacy side to side with the pre-Peavey CAs and discovered that the neck was different. I got out my gauge and measured and the nut on the new Legacy was only 1.69". It was supposed to be 1.75". I contacted the dealer I bought it through (Artisan Guitars) who gave me the run around and I also contacted Peavey directly and the CA factory. I even left a voice mail for Hartly Peavey himself stating my guitar had a manufacture defect. Fred Poole, a manager at Peavey then changed his story and told me to send the guitar back and they'd replace it with a new Legacy with 1.75" nut width. I paid to send the guitar back and a week after they had received it, I still had heard nothing from them. I called them and sent more emails. Eventually Peavey and Fred Poole, claimed that the guitar does indeed have a 1.75" nut width and showed a video of them holding a digital micrometer to the nut and the micrometer read 1.7525". I asked if they had calibrated the micrometer and was basically made fun of. They refused to measure it with a steel rule or gauge and would only measure with a digital micrometer which could be off or manipulated. At this point they're sending my defective guitar back to me and I'm stuck with a nearly $3K defective custom guitar. CHECK YOUR SPECS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A LEGACY AND MEASURE THE NUT WITH A STEEL GAUGE OR STEEL RULE.
