    What brand of guitar do you have there? Here's what I used on a 631-mile canoe trip in May-June of this year - hand-made by my brother, all carbon-fiber.

    Blacktop:

    On the river (guitar behind me in canoe):

    Nicknamed by my brother "Blacktop," this prototype 3-pound guitar was half-filled with rainwater many times in the 45 days of the trip and usually I could pour the water out the hollow neck, set it in the sun a few minutes, and it wouldn't even be out of tune! I now take it whenever I'm camping with the dogs in the sidecar (pic in my sig line).

    He's planning to make these (now on his third design - this was the first) as one-off, custom instruments for people wanting a quality instrument that's unaffected by weather.

    Here is his latest design - patterned after the Brazilian Craviola classical guitar:

    On its side (note - lots of sanding dust on the body):
    [​IMG]

    This one will be lighter than the 3.5-pound one I carried on my trip and has several other design changes, most notably the body and sound hole shape and the handlebar mustache bridge/saddle. When this photo was made he'd just attached the fretboard and drilled the holes in the headstock for the tuning keys. No finish work had yet been done on the guitar. The frets still have to be filed and recrowned. The bridge was just sitting on the top, not attached yet. He'll likely string this one up to set the action this week or next.

    We've both always liked his 40-year-old-plus Craviola's rich bass and mellow overall tone and so he's hoping this one will have a similar sound, but be military-grade tough.

    Very cool idea with the guitar, but I find it hard to believe you could get the same warm resonance you can with wood. There's a reason guitars are made from trees...

    Either way though, very cool :clap

    The point of this guitar is to have something that's not fragile like a fine wooden guitar that can come along for the ride, whatever or wherever the ride may be. It wouldn't have been the first choice for Andrés Segovia for a concert, but it doesn't sound bad either.

    I'm not an accomplished musician by any means, but having this guitar along made the trip for me and my two pups much more enjoyable. I made this at a remote campsite on the banks of the Alabama River, miles away from the nearest building. A lullaby for the pups...
