Professional Travel Guitar: All-Solid Sitka Pau Ferro w Scoop & Bevel

The RoadTrip Pro TM is a professional-grade fixed-neck travel guitar that’s designed with all solid woods and premium features to suit the needs of acoustic guitarists who want the biggest sound, fullest tone, and highest comfort 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 RoadTripTM 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 RoadTripTM comes with our proprietary under-bridge passive triple piezo pickup system that sounds great straight to the soundboard – regardless your style of playing.

The RoadTripTM 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 RoadTripTM 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 Scoopaway design offers easy access to the higher frets with minimal impact on volume and tone
  • The arm-bevel, along with the wedge, makes this perhaps the most comfortable guitar ever!
  • 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.
