Folding Travel Guitars Know When to Hold ‘Em Know When to Fold ‘Em
July 21st, 2012
Traveling with a guitar is always a pain in the butt. Anything as oddly shaped as a guitar is a pain to haul around with you. If only you could fold your guitar between gigs. Well, with this particular instrument, you can.
These folding travel guitars come from California-based company Voyage-Air. While not as compact as the Ministar guitar, these ones look like traditional guitars once assembled. They are designed to fold forward at the base of the neck and that makes them much easier to carry around. They come in acoustic and electric versions and yes they include their own specially designed carrying cases.
Of course, this kind of guitar isn’t cheap. Voyage- Air Guitars range from $399(USD) for an entry-level model to $1,700(USD) for the Premier edition. A foldable solid-body electric sells for about $750(USD). Not cheap, but if portability is important to you, it will be well worth it.
