Road Trip Carbon Fiber – RT660M

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

DESIGNED FOR TRAVEL

The RoadTrip™ is a fixed-neck travel guitar that’s designed to suit the needs of acoustic guitarists who want the biggest sound and fullest tone possible in a travel-sized guitar. With an overall length of about 36 inches and a lower bout width of under 14.5 inches, the RoadTrip™ boasts a longer relative scale length of 24.5 inches and an expanded Manzer wedge © body design with highly scalloped forward-shifted X-bracing.  The result is a guitar that travels small yet sounds ginormous with awesome bass response and sweet trebles! The string spacing is 1 ¾ at the nut and 2 ¼ at the saddle, so it feels and plays like a full-sized guitar.

The RoadTrip™ comes with our proprietary under-bridge passive triple piezo pickup system that sounds great straight to the soundboard – regardless your style of playing.

The RoadTrip™ travel bag is made with premium ballistic nylon and super-thick high density foam padding and a soft velour lining for maximum protection. It’s designed with patented neck compartments to take advantage of space around the guitar neck and it features a massive pleated front pocket and stretch-mesh pocket, as well as multiple straps and daisy chains so you can easily store all gear for a gig, or pack for a day or two of travel. The RoadTrip™ travel bag seamlessly integrates with our travel uke case for a complete travel solution for guitarists who play uke as well.

 

 COMFORTABLE TO PLAY

  • The wedge design angles the guitar into your body which places the guitar in a comfortable position for fingerboard access and viewing.
  • The dual-action steel truss-rod enables fine tuning of relief to suit any playing style.
  • Satin-finish low-c profile neck make this 24.5 inch scale super comfortable to play.
