Overhead and First Class Collapsible Wood Travel Guitars

Overhead™ Collapsible Acoustic Travel Guitars

Journey overhead collapsible wood travel guitar

Our Overhead™ hand-made collapsible acoustic travel guitars are an amazing value for guitarists looking for stress-free travel with a guitar that’s a blast to play. The Overhead™ wood series was designed concurrently with our OF660 carbon series after conducting 300 hours of surveys and research on the needs of traveling guitarists with a preference for natural wood acoustic guitars. The result is a no-compromise travel guitar for guitarists who want the feel and playability of a full-sized acoustic guitar that features unparalleled ergonomics, portability and electronics as well. The idea was to create a stress-free travel guitar you can bring on any airplane and perform on any stage at a price that doesn’t break the bank. Read on below about what makes the Overhead™ collapsible acoustic travel guitar so special.

Hand-Made with Premium Sustainable Woods

The Overhead™ acoustic travel guitar is hand-made premium woods and solid top or solid top/back construction. We use woods that are CITES compliant and sustainably cultivated including North American Sitka, real African Mahogany, Ovangkal, and Pau Ferro Rosewood. We use real Mahogany for our necks and supporting structures, and these travel guitars even come standard with Ebony bridge pins.

Ergonomics

The Overhead™ acoustic  travel guitars are some of the most ergonomic acoustic guitars you’ll ever encounter. The Manzer© wedge angles the guitar to allow the weight of your fretting arm to naturally add pressure to the fretboard, so it reduces stress on your wrist. The resulting angle also creates a more comfortable strumming angle for your strumming arm, thus alleviating shoulder strain and fatigue.

Scale and Playability

The Overhead™ acoustic travel guitars feature a 24.5 inch (622 mm) scale – similar to that of a Gibson Les Paul, which makes for great acoustic volume, yet with lower string tension and more comfortable fretting. The shallow C neck shape make it suitable for all sizes of hands and it comes standard with a 1.75 inch (44.5 mm) nut. An optional 1 11/16 (43 mm) nut neck is also available on some models.

Patented Removable Neck Design

Our improved carbon fiber reinforced quick-assembly mechanism enables assembly or removal of the neck in less than 20 seconds, as well as fine-tuning of the neck angle. This means you can assemble the guitar in a snap for finger style playing, and then change your action for heavy strumming with a simple twist of the knob on the back! This is a huge advantage for guitarists who play multiple styles and need a variety of string setups.

Premium Appointments

Overhead™ wood collapsible acoustic travel guitars feature premium appointments found in much higher-end guitars as well. We use either Grover 18:1 precision tuners, or our own proprietary 1:21 precision tuners. Authentic bone nuts and saddles, ebony bridge pins, and Elixir® coated phosphor bronze strings help make for a traditional warm and balanced acoustic tone.

Tone

Tone was one of the main considerations when we designed all of our Overhead™ collapsible acoustic travel guitars. The solid tonewoods, mahogany neck, block, and even bridge, and even fretboard and appointment materials are all orchestrated to bring you an amazing full-sounding tone in an amazingly small and comfortable package. When amplified with our passive piezo pickup system, the Overhead™ acoustic travel guitar sounds like a full sized guitar on the stage.

Electronics

We install our exclusive upgradeable JourneyTek™ proprietary passive piezo pickups in our Overhead™ collapsible travel guitars. Engineered to be maintenance-free with high-output German made piezo elements, these are balanced and battery-free, and create a transparent representation of these amazing sounding travel guitars. Moreover, for guitarists who need more control, our newest installed EP001K pickups are easily upgradeable to our EPS001-15 within minutes - and with no need for tools.

The Travel Case

Our Patented BG001 Overhead™ collapsible travel guitar case brings your travel guitar experience to a whole new level. The case features premium materials and fits exactly into carry-on dimensions of 22*14*9 inches (55.5*23*35.5 cm), and can accommodate multiple pedals, cables, laptops, tablets, and other accessories.

Once you travel with an Overhead™ collapsible acoustic travel guitar, you’ll never settle for a plain travel guitar again… and you might not settle for any other guitar either. ;)
