Composite Acoustics & Peavey

Post by spmartin » Wed Aug 11, 2010 8:36 am

Anyone have inside information on when Peavey will be bringing to market their new carbon fiber line of guitars? Since acquiring the assets of Composite Acoustics Guitar Co., Lafayette, LA, I am sure they have been strategizing about the guitars in the line that make sense to bring to market. For those of us who own Composite Acoustics guitars, this is an exciting time!! We can't wait to see what Peavey does to make great guitars even better!

There isn't a whole lot we can say just yet, but the production line and equipment is now in the process of being set up. The plans are to get CA back up and running asap, so expect to see some announcements in the VERY near future.

2 Epiphones; FT150 acoustic W/pup and a Studio Dot Semi-hollow.

Thanks Roger. There is a very active Carbon Fiber community, and they are waiting with baited breath to see what Peavey does. I think a majority of the folks I know have positive expectations about Peavey acquiring the CA assets. Personally, I encourage you to keep the CA brand. It has a good reputation. All the best to you!

I have checked out the MacNichol forums, and it is great that the response has been so positive. The plan is to definitely retain the CA brand on the instruments.

It would be great if these were going to be made in the USA.

The official product launch will most likely be at the Winter NAMM show in January.

Thanks Roger! That just seems so far away!! I'm surprised that Peavey wants to miss the Christmas buying season!

Doing these products RIGHT is the priority, even if it takes a little longer.

Again, I can't say too much just yet, but there are a couple of reasons for the wait that I think would be ok to touch on.

There have been a lot of suggestions on changes that current CA fans and customers would like to see. For now I will only say, we are paying attention! Look for an even better product going forward.

There is also a learning curve involved here, and more involved in manufacturing these than setting up the equipment and turning the old production crank. Again, we believe it is important to get these RIGHT from the start up.

Having guitars ready to ship at product launch is another reason for the wait.

Sounds good to me! And please make sure the proper sized cases are ordered in time and ready to go too! :wink: :oops:

ps. Can you give us a hint about street prices? Just a general range would be fine. If not, that's understandable too.

I was the guitar tech at CA,and I'm really glad these guitars will be built with the CA name on it.They are such good instruments,I used them on three of my bands albums for all the acoustic parts.Peavey is a great company and I like seeing them produce these guitars in the USA!!!
Cheers,
