Lives for gear
Wood is obviously and excellent choice and for good reason

But I've played some good carbon fiber acoustic guitars. All them were voiced in a way I don't prefer (too jangy and bright, I'm more of a jazzbo). But they were good instruments in most every respect. That technology can produce really pleasing musical results, and it's got a lot of advantages

Classical guitar guys love "double tops," which are nomex honeycomb sandwiched between two thin spruce veneers.

Musicians are extremely conservative for the most part, and don't want to depart from tradition. I've heard a lot of luthiers complain that all their customers want is Gibson, Martin and Fender clones
