Unfortunately this was the only video I could find of the Fibertone NC17 all-acoustic - guy's fingerpicking and using electric strings which kills a lot of the volume/tone, but it'll give you an idea:



- and here's an unplugged sample of their travel guitar, probably a 15" or 16" (again with thin strings, but the tonal potential is definitely there - and if this is what the small-body sounds like, that NC17 must be a real monster when you lay into it):

I like the look of the unidirectional carbonon those Fibertone guitars. Reverb seems to have pricing: https://reverb.com/marketplace?query=fibertone

Maybe I have never played the right archtops for that, but in my experience they don't produce as much volume as true acoustic guitars due to the construction of the top.

I wouldn't mind to be proven wrong though.

OUT FOR DELIVERY. I'd been eying this very special V-JM1100N2 Rainsong that Ted has had listed for a while, and bought it for myself for my 71st birthday....
