Default What's happening with Composite Acoustics ?

I wonder what's happening with Composite Acoustics ? Why Peavey is not promoting them and why they have not launched a new model in years ? In my personal opinion, it is an excellent brand of CF guitars with a distinctive, almost woody tone, so there should be a clear market niche for CA. Maybe it is because prices are too high? I mean, when you have to spend 3k for a GX, you start looking around : McPherson, Blackbird, Emerald Customs with woody veneer.... I have a fantastic 2015 Composite Acoustic OX high gloss, red, with L.E. Bags pick up, in mint condition, and I was lucky enough to pay for it $950.00 pre-owned. But if I had to spend $1990.00 for the same guitar brand new, I do not know, maybe I would have not purchased it...there are excellent Rainsong (and Journey) cf guitars that cost quite less than 2K. Even Emerald guitars, in their standard configuration, cost less.
Any way, it is sad to see this great brand slowly disappear with less and less dealers and, as far as I know, a smaller and smaller presence at NAMM.
