Known for their high-end, unconventional carbon fiber guitars, San Francisco's Blackbird introduces a new model created out of Ekoa, a natural fiber composite that is made up of natural, low-density linen that not only looks beautiful, but can achieve a sound that rivals your traditional wooden guitars.

It is the first guitar made from the material, weighing in at a total of 5 lbs. The guitar features a 23' foot soundboard radius for enhanced response, a lightweight and robust slothead, and a single-piece body and neck construction.

The Ekoa El Capitan starts at $3,030 and is available now at
