[NAMM] Peavey Composite Acoustics GX
Peavey debuts the Composite Acoustics line of carbon fiber acoustic guitars.
Acquired by Peavey in 2010, Composite Acoustics introduced instruments built from composite materials featuring weave soundboards.
The nature of carbon fiber produces an instrument that stays in tune longer and never needs adjustment, the company says. By varying the carbon fiber material density in different areas of the body, Composite Acoustics instruments are supposedly able to achieve an "amazing, finely tuned tone that is consistent from instrument to instrument." Carbon fiber construction and heelless neck joints also allow for instrument shapes not possible with wood.
Peavey will debut three Composite Acoustic models at WNAMM: the GX, the OX and the Cargo. These models feature updates that topped the wish-lists of the Composite Acoustics players community. All models feature an updated and improved neck angle and improved bracing, and the flagship GX model is now offered with a redesigned, narrow-profile neck.
