Composite Acoustics Cargo with Translucent Red Burst Finish Top and LR Baggs
A travel size instrument that sounds like a full size guitar? Impossible! Our Cargo is comfortable to play anywhere, from the forests of Oregon to the foothills of the Catskill mountains, and even in your favorite armchair. Finely appointed and incredibly durable, the Cargo is ready when you are. It easily fits airline overheads or anywhere space is tight. It's a portable guitar with the playability, sound and satisfaction of a full size guitar. This Composite Acoustics Cargo high-gloss finish is instantly eye-catching! The sound that comes out of this small guitar is quite surprising, with a nicely balanced tone and impressive low end. It includes a Cargo CA Gig-Bag.
The cargo is one of the most popular guitars when our customers want to purchase a great travel guitar without sacrificing tone. The carbon fiber construction means that you can finally leave the gutiar in a cold car overnight without any worry of damage. Rainstorm falling on the gig? You may need a string change, but the guitar will survive the storm with zero damage! The necks are built without a truss rod and will NEVER be out of adjustment, regardless of humidity or temperature changes.
This guitar is equiped with the LR Baggs Active Element pickup. Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play.
At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses “quack” caused by compression and unlocks the Element’s unrivaled dynamic range. The pickup’s minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
