With as much as it costs to check bags these days you could leave that extra suitcase at home a few times and pay for one of the new series of travel guitars from Voayage-Air they are calling their Transit Series.
Today, Voayage-Air Guitar shatters the entry-level price barriers with the breakthrough Voyage-Air TransitTM Series guitars. Priced at just $399, almost anyone can afford an easy to play, great- sounding folding travel guitar.
The Transit Series guitars employ the exact same patented hinge as used on all Voayage-Air guitars, on up through the $1,995 VAOM-2C Premiere Series guitar. This is the same hinge as the guitars used on stage by pop icons Steve Miller, and Rusty Anderson with the Paul McCartney Band.
The Transit Series guitars use a high-gloss select Mahogany for the back and sides, along with a smooth satin-finish Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard. The elegant High-gloss Spruce top is supported by forward-shifted X-bracing. All Transit Series guitars feature single-ply black top and back binding, and an inlaid soundhole rosette.
Two configurations are available for the first Transit Series guitars:
The VAOM-02 flatters finger-style playing, with a full-size ‘OM-style’ guitar body, a traditional 1- 3⁄4″ nut width and 24-3/4″ scale length.
The VAMD-02 is designed for strumming and chords, with a slightly-reduced 95%-size ‘Dreadnought’ guitar body. The neck and scale are still full-size, with a 1-11/16″ nut width and a 24-3/4″ scale length.
All Transit Series guitars have standard features usually found on far more expensive instruments: ‘dot’ inlay fret markers, a compensated saddle, the patented Voyage-Air captured nut, advanced zero- fret fingerboard, chrome-plated die-cast enclosed tuners, phosphor-bronze strings, and a distinctive black pickguard. The optional TransitBagTM case is also slimmer and lighter than other Voyage-Air guitars: indeed, these are the most compact full-size acoustic folding travel guitars!
“These are the kind of products that we can now produce based on solid market experience,” said Michael Ferrucci, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Voayage-Air Guitar. “These guitars are easy to play, have a rich tone, and are priced so you can really take them anywhere. Never again worry about taking a guitar hiking, camping or on a trip. Take a Transit with you on your next adventure!”
