If your question is, is there a D28 type guitar in the carbon world it would be that Rainsong DR1000, or the CA Legacy. Both Dred copies with the CA's goal to sound like a wood Martin. If your question is is there a carbon model that has become iconic like the D28, not sure CF guitars have been around long enough for that. Rainsong WS1000 or the JM1000 I think have been around long enough to maybe be thought of that way. CF allows for pushing the envelope so we are still in the innovative stages hard to know what will really be looked at as iconic.

To me the Emerald Doubleneck is in the iconic class but not for the reasons you ascribe to the D28. I just don't think it will ever be reproduced by any other builder and created a instrument only CF could produce.
