Exactly my experience!

I am going to contact LA Guitars and see what he has. Their website doesn't have much but he's gotten a lot of good comments. Thank You.

Hmm, I see a lot of CF guitars listed at LAguitars.

From my smart phone:
> Menu
> Guitars
> By brand

Blackbird Guitars - 7 guitars, 4 ukuleles
.. California San Fran

Composite Acoustics - 2 guitars
.. Alabama (discontinued new old stock)

Journey Instruments - 10 guitars
.. China

KLOS Guitars - 3 guitars
.. Utah

McPherson Guitars - 7 guitars
.. Wisconsin

RainSong Guitar - 41 guitars
.. Washington state


Ted cn tell you what's available and can order from makers on one or two months turn around.

Also ask about options like necks in medium scale (24" to 24.9") and short scale (22 1/2" to 24"), and colours (ex: RainSong $75 tobacco, marine bursts), etc.

Cheers

I had a custom Emerald X7 made a few years ago and I had it made without a truss rod. I wanted the neck end of the guitar to be as light as possible to reduce the chance of any neck dive like I've experienced on some of the small guitars that i have had. It will balance quite nicely on my leg without having to hold it up. The action is fantastic and it hasn't moved a bit since I've owned it and I don't expect it to ever change. I would definately do it again if i have another custom Emerald made.
