    I have a CK-22G. Maple and spruce. I like it. My guitar-playing friends have been incredulous that "you can get that much tone from such a small soundboard."

    Carbon fiber is not as dense as epoxy, and epoxy isn't as stiff as carbon fiber.

    If you take lots and lots of wraps on the tuner, it will take a long time to settle in.

    It's more about stiffness than actually breaking the wood.
