    What a bunch of morons. I would never play a cf stringed instrument. Shit, I'd never rock a cf air-guitar.
    Wood has the required strength and resonance abilities, without which, your acoustic instrument would not be nearly as loud, nor would it sound the same. Its like using plastic church bells, its the wrong material.

    This is hillarious...

    I went to their dealer page. I was trying to figure out how much these bastards cost. Just out of curiosity. Half the dealer links are broken. NONE of the dealers are answering their phones, its all "leave a message and we won't call you back" And of the half whose links were working, NONE listed the price.. All of em say "call for price"

    So, I called the manufacturer and got a number to "tony".. This is the single fucker that actually builds these bastards. A short conversation later I've found that depending on what "features" and finish I would like, these can run anywhere from $3000 up to $10,000. Which I believe is entirely acceptable for a high end insturment.

    If any of you need Tony's number, Its 928-554-0229. He also stated that if the price was "too high" He has some that have been built to other's specifications that he would sell cheaper.

    Nice guy.

    100% of my leg is still my real leg (actually probly a little over 100% due to bone regrowth and such)
    the only metal i have in me is the 16 or so screws in my face :)
    but yeah the CF is a brace i made for myself so that i can rollerblade and stuff :)

    nah it wraps around my lower leg from just below the knee to the ankle
    i got a type 3* compound tib / fib fracture in a bike accident, about 2-3 inches my tibia was shattered about mid shin area (yes im serious...shattered... it looked like someone threw a coffee cup against the wall)... so i made the brace to give added strength and support to the tibia, so it can handle the side pressure, and to protect it from impacts (crazy ass nerve damage, some areas i cant really feel at all, others a simple tap will have me on the ground)

    *Type III. Severe skin wound with extensive devitilised soft tissue and embedded foreign material caused by high velocity trauma.
