I played my a CA Cargo for the first time at a Larrivee event in March 2009  (thanks to Photomat). I got my own in January 2016. (Seven Years Later - Finally, a CA Cargo)  

From that thread last year. Here are a couple of comparison shots showing the Cargo and my Larrivée C38 Classical (same size as an LS). The case below is a near-perfect fit for the Classical guitar so I put the Cargo in the same case so you could see the difference in size.





It's been the perfect travelling companion on planes and in the car. I've played it in plenty of occasions where I wouldn't have bothered or cared to bring a full sized wood guitar. The Cargo is my go-to acoustic. The few others that remain, get almost no play time.  

Haven't had much to say here. The discussions about tonewoods, cites, finishes, 50th anniversaries, inlays no longer resonate.

My great wish for all of you, is that you find the one: the one you'll play so much that the others are no longer relevant.

Thats the modal I played at a local store.Great guitar sounds the same acoustically or plugged in.Only complaint is I'm not fond of the back body contours but then I'm fond of my front body contours.

I played Matt's Cargo as well, in fact he offered to let me use it during the time we were in Vancouver. But I just didn't feel comfortable with it being in my possession that long.
     But it did leave a favorable impression.

Also, ironically my old all mahogany 000 gets more play time than all the others. Maybe because of all the hours of labor put into it to change the bracing.

Thanks for the warning ST. A cargo has been on my list for quite a while. If they are that good, I'll stay away from it.
