Default Composite Acoustics Cargo RAW ELE Carbon Travel Guitar

I was a little skeptical of Carbon fiber guitars, but this one convinced me they can still sound beautiful, natural, and warm.
A great guitar for travelling and gigging, plays effortlessly. I've enjoyed being able to leave it around the house without worrying about humidity or my kids breaking it.

Comes with LR baggs electronics which were installed at the factory and the original gigbag for easy travelling. It is in great condition with a few scuffs on the front. There is a very slight hairline separation where the fretboard meets the neck, it is stable and appears to just be where the fretboard material was glued to the neck. Doesn't affect anything, and may be common to carbon guitars, but is worth noting.

AGF Price - $850 including shipping, PP F&F or buyer pays fees.

Not common to carbon fiber guitars in general. Maybe a Cargo owner can chime in.

That would help! Previous owner hadn't mentioned it to me, but I try to be meticulous in description.

Im a longtime happy Cargo owner. Mine is an 08 model with the road tough finish that I bought new back then. They are great guitars, playing well above their small size in every respect. Its hard to know without seeing a close-up photo of the body/neck joint, but I just checked mine and it has no sign of any such separation whatsoever. Id say its not normal, but again, posting a clear photo would be helpful.

Thanks for the thoughts Acousticado, I included some close up pictures, the slight separation is near the nut where the fretboard meets the neck.

Guitar is located in Ontario, Canada
