Default a fascinating read

There has always been discussion about how our CF guitars seem to respond to the strings we put on them. It is a cheap and fun experiment and the subject has come up again.

The following is a link to an article with RainSong founder John Decker talking about the properties of acoustic sound waves and why it made so much sense to build RainSong guitars out of graphite.

Steel;

Thanks for bringing this here--Decker is definitely a prime mover in the development of CF guitars. I also think his son-in-law has made some genius moves in keeping Rainsong moving forward.
