Overview of Our Products
Journey Instruments® launched in 2012 with our Overhead® series collapsible ergonomic acoustic travel guitars in both wood and carbon fiber. No longer do you need to buy an expensive guitar flight case to have a great guitar when you travel by air. Our collapsible travel guitars employ our patented removable neck mechanism for complete assembly in 20 seconds! Our Overhead® acoustic travel guitars are available in carbon fiber and wood. They employ a thicker Manzer© wedge body that makes them super ergonomic and results in a surprisingly big tone for such a small travel guitar body. These travel guitars come equipped with passive piezo pickups and are available in steel string, classical, and a 27” scale acoustic carbon fiber travel basses. The OF660 collapsible carbon fiber travel guitar series is arguably the best acoustic travel guitar you’ll ever find. If you’re looking for a packpacker acoustic guitar, a carry-on travel guitar, or just a great sounding small-bodied acoustic guitar that’s a joy to travel with, look no further.
Our First Class guitars are the ultimate acoustic travel guitars for musicians looking for a stage-worthy acoustic travel guitar experience. These premium travel guitars feature our modern ergonomic wedge guitar body with arm bevels and premium appointments applied grand auditorium, parlor guitar, and Torres classical guitar body formats. They also feature our upgradeable passive under-bridge pickups and convertible roller-case backpack gig bags.
Our RoadTrip™ and Journey Junior™ ergonomic guitars are fixed-neck student and touring guitars with our wedged guitar body that enables easier fretting for beginners or musicians with wrist injury or shoulder pain. These are a great value for gigging musicians and students looking for big tone in a small, expandable package.
We design our instruments and cases together, so that the travel case is not a mere afterthought, but a core part of the entire travel guitar experience. For the Overhead travel guitar series, this means you can fit all your gigging accessories into the patented gig bag that fits into standard carry-on dimensions of major airlines. Our guitar gig bags designed for our Journey Junior™ and RoadTrip™ series travel and touring guitars fit most 36″ to 39″ travel guitars and have a plethora of pockets, daisy chains, and straps that can expand to accommodate tablets, pedals, stands, and cables.
Our ukuleles include pickups and a full-featured ukulele travel case. The US490CTE, a thin bodied travel ukulele at only 22 inches total with the case is our most popular model. Our J-uke travel ukulele gig bags are equally expandable, come with rain covers, and can clip on to any other bag and accommodate gear and stands as well.
Finally our JourneyTek™ premium acoustic pickups are featured in most of our products and employ an upgradeable passive piezo pickup system with German-Made piezo elements for unparalleled transparent amplification of your instrument’s natural tone. These under-bridge passive piezo pickups are the best value around for transparent acoustic instrument amplification. We see many artists installing our pickups on vintage and premium hand-made acoustic guitars and ukuleles. Click Here for an independent on Youtube.
