Solid Sitka / Solid African Mahogany – RT412
The RT412 RoadTrip is a killer fixed-neck touring guitar with solid sitka top and solid African Mahogany back tone woods, and layered sides that give it the rich tone of a larger all-solid guitar, but considerably more stable for varying environments. The asymmetrical larger Manzer Wedge © design on a smaller 36” body along with a 24.5 inch scale & scalloped X-bracing makes barre chords a breeze and is super comfortable on the shoulder and wrist. Basically we’ve put the tone and volume of an Orchestra Model into a comfy smaller 36” guitar! Our patented bag design has more than enough room for all your gear with amazing protection. This guitar is ideal for guitarists looking for a comfortable easy-playing guitar, or those looking to minimize stress on their shoulders and joints.

Designed for Travel
The RoadTripTM is a fixed-neck travel guitar that’s designed to suit the needs of acoustic guitarists who want the biggest sound and fullest tone possible in a travel-sized guitar. With an overall length of about 36 inches and a lower bout width of under 14.5 inches, the RoadTripTM boasts a longer relative scale length of 24.5 inches and an expanded Manzer wedge © body design with highly scalloped forward-shifted X-bracing. The result is a guitar that travels small yet sounds ginormous with awesome bass response and sweet trebles! The string spacing is 1 ¾ at the nut and 2 ¼ at the saddle, so it feels and plays like a full-sized guitar.
The RoadTripTM comes with our proprietary under-bridge passive triple piezo pickup system that sounds great straight to the soundboard – regardless your style of playing.
The RoadTripTM travel bag is made with premium ballistic nylon and super-thick high density foam padding and a soft velour lining for maximum protection. It’s designed with patented neck compartments to take advantage of space around the guitar neck and it features a massive pleated front pocket and stretch-mesh pocket, as well as multiple straps and daisy chains so you can easily store all gear for a gig, or pack for a day or two of travel. The RoadTripTM travel bag seamlessly integrates with our travel uke case for a complete travel solution for guitarists who play uke as well.
