Composite Acoustics Legacy Carbon Burst Acoustic/Electric Guitar with Trace Acoustics Electronics & Hard Case
This guitar is new, but has been played a few times by customers. There are a couple small cosmetic defects to note, which are:
One mark on fret board (pictured; mark is smooth so is not felt while playing. It is merely cosmetic)
Three light, long scratches on the back of the guitar (pictured)
One or two long light marks on bottom of guitar (pictured)
Two small light scratches on bottom of guitar (pictured)
Two tiny dimples on headstock (pictured)
One 2mm mark in finish near base of neck (pictured)
The Legacy dreadnought guitar ties the classic guitar body with the innovative carbon fiber designs & technology. Its dreadnought shape gives it the extra power and low end not seen in other guitars in the Composite Acoustics line.
Excerpt from Premier Guitar:
For Composite Acoustics’ new carbon fiber guitars, Trace Elliot has designed a preamp that leaves the guitar as untouched as possible, both physically and tonally. There’s no large preamp cutout and the basic operation is simple, with volume, bass, and treble controls and tone controls that are especially tuned for a pleasing boost or cut of lows and highs. This preamp is designed to enhance pure, natural guitar tone with minimal coloring using sophisticated FFT analysis and simulations. It also has extended battery life made possible through low power circuitry, meaning the battery drains only slightly more than just sitting on a shelf. Simple design and longer battery life are ideal properties for a high-quality carbon fiber acoustic.
"In addition to sounding great, a significant benefit of carbon fiber guitars is their ability to withstand extreme variations in climate conditions. This means that even in intensely hot or humid conditions, the instruments will stay in tune longer than traditional wooden guitars while also retaining their precise setup," said Courtland Gray, Chief Operating Officer of Peavey Electronics Corporation.
At PC Sound, we check out our instruments and provide a general setup prior to listing them online and shipping to you to ensure the instrument is in the best possible condition. However, sometimes a minor adjustment may be needed once it arrives to you due to shipping, or individual preferences. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
