    Journey Inst Overhead Carbon Fiber / Matte Black Finish w/ Flight Bag

    Patented removable neck system allows this carbon fiber acoustic travel guitar to collapse into an airline carry-on size case for the traveling musician or backpacker. Carbon fiber composite material provides durability and can function in any climate without cracking, warping or changing tone. The Overhead carries a clear resonant tone with surprising volume and bass. The relatively small body size is able to carry a full sound through the use of a Manzer wedge which increases the air volume while keeping the top of the guitar close to the body for comfort. Also provides access to the upper frets through a ScoopawayTM at the neck. Also includes tone-enhancing premium-grade bone nut and saddle, along with ebony bridge pins. Soundboard: Unidirection Carbon Fiber with matte finish Back & Sides: Carbon Fiber Twill with matte finish Case: Custom-designed travel guitar backpack engineered to fit in airline carry-on compartment (see specs here) Pickup: Proprietary under-bridge transducer pickup system DESCRIPTION DESIGNED FOR TRAVEL The Overhead travel guitar uses a patented collapsible neck system which allows for assembly/disassembly in a matter of seconds. [View Youtube Video] After packing in its travel backpack the Overhead travel guitar can be carried-on to most major airlines, easily fitting in the overhead bin compartment. Travel backpack includes a TSA compliant laptop tablet fold-out panel which can be scanned by airport security without having to separately remove laptop. Proprietary under-bridge transducer pickup system accurately amplifies the guitar and comes with all Overhead guitars. FULL TONE IN A TRAVEL BODY The wedge design gives a lower shoulder/bout depth that’s deeper than a dreadnought, allowing the smaller body size to deliver great volume and booming bass. Bone nut, compensated bone saddle, and ebony bridge pins all help produce the tone preferred by acoustic guitarists. Offset sound-hole design maximizes the resonance and volume of the soundboard and proprietary bracing and layup structure produce a spectacular tone for such a compact instrument. 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. Scoop-awayTM design gives full access to all 20 frets, yet maximizes inner air volume of the instrument for maximum acoustical volume.
