Default carbon fiber guitar with a wedge

I know that Emerald guitars have bevels (maybe not the same as a wedge) and Journey has wedges. Do any other companies make carbon fiber guitars with a wedge? Thanks.

The Journey OF660 travel guitars use the Manzer Wedge design.

My Rainsong does not.... And with that thick lower bout that wouldn't have been a bad idea.

I'm seeing plenty of references to the bevel, but I can't find anything about a wedge...

Suggest to your wife that she take up quilting. By the time you've gone through SMAS (Sewing Machine Acquisition Syndrome) a couple of times, not to mention SMAAS (Sewing Machine Accessory Acquisition Syndrome), you'll be able to buy pretty much anything you want.

I speak from experience. And own two Emeralds.

Well I'm halfway there, except it's not quilting. It's bass. Her name is Kay. So naturally she plays a Kay. There's some really nice ones on Reverb. Including a standup with a very shiny redneck flame paint job she likes. (don't ask).....

Sorry about the thread drift.

Thread drift is most welcome. At least people here don't yell at each other about micro-crystalline differences between ox femur and mammoth testicle bridge pins.

LOL. I refer to it as "Stream of consciousness posting".

If you REALLY want to have fun on the woodie fora ask things like:

"Should I relax my strings when I'm not playing it for a while?"
"What should I use to treat the wood?" (McGuiars is not the answer, that IS however what Rainsong recommends.... I have it in stock LOL)
"Which humidity is best for my guitar?"
"Which Martin sounds the best?"

Ah, you get the idea.

Thanks song for the reference to the Leviora guitars and the list. Didn't know there were so many makers of carbon fiber guitars.
