Why noT?

It sounds pretty good as presented. It will never sound like a pre-war Martin or my 1933 Kalamazoo with all the aged wood......but it will have its own unique and pleasant sound.

Martin has used carbon fiber under the bridge plates of some of their higher quality instruments to keep the bridge plate from damping the resonance of the sound board. Carbon fiber is cool stuff.

Could be cool to lay our hands on such an instrument. But i'd guess it will always remain a bit of an surrogate for the real thing, at least in the acoustic guitar department.
Here is clip where both are compared
