Journey Junior JF880N
The Journey Junior JF880N is a sweet little fixed-neck parlor-sized guitar with solid top and layered back & sides. It’s super ergonomic – making it ideal for artists looking for a smaller body guitar with a nice parlor tone that’s super easy to play and refreshingly comfortable. The asymmetrical larger Manzer Wedge design on a smaller 36” body along with a longer 24.5 inch scale with forward-shifted scalloped X-bracing makes this guitar easy to play barre chords and very comfortable on the shoulder under long periods of playing. Our patented bag design has more than enough room for all your gear with amazing protection. This guitar is great for guitarists looking for a comfortable easy-playing guitar, or those looking to minimize stress on their shoulders and joints.
