Voyage-Air Guitar

An acoustic guitar that folds in half and fits in carry-on luggage compartments.

The Voyage-Air VAOM-04 is a vintage style solid spruce-top folding travel guitar with Orchestra Model body shape. The revolutionary design makes traveling with a guitar a breeze. Simply loosen the strap button and easily fold the guitar in half for easy storage inside the custom gig bag. When you're ready to play it, unfold-tighten the bolt and it's nearly in tune.

A solid spruce top is finished with a high-gloss finish. High-gloss mahogany is used for the back and sides, and a contrasting single-ply white top and back binding adds a smash of contrast to the overall look of this guitar.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

      Comments about Voyage-Air Guitar Songwriter VAOM-04 Travel Acoustic Guitar:

      To sum up, the guitar is pretty awesome value, the folding design works great, it has nice action out of the box, lovely tone for fingerstyle; however the attention to detail/qa on mine wasn't great. So be prepared for some work and some additional money to get one of these working properly. Its worth it IMO.

      The first thing I noticed when picking up my VAOM-04 were the frets were really sharp on the edges, so whenever you move your hand up and down neck the sharp edges caught on my hand. I didn't cut myself but could have. On close inspection they were pretty poorly finished.

      OK so not a huge deal to file them down, took an hour or so to dress the edges. When I restringed I noticed also the pins are pretty low quality and didn't fit the pin holes on bridge well. Replacement pins are not costly though. The tuners are OK but it can wander a little bit out of tune more than would be ideal when playing with gusto.

      With such a lack of attention to detail and cheap pins and tuners, however, I am more than pleasantly surprised to say after fixing those issues, it plays really really well. Much more like a far more expensive instrument.

      The action was low and easy without adjustment, tones lovely and balanced to my ear (for fingerstyle). Intonation good. Really easy to play, the neck width, the woods, its all really good.

      I did a lot of research before I brought my VAOM-04 happy to report its main feature, folding, works a treat. Its perfect for travelling. When its unfolded you really would know its not a standard OM.

      So I have to say I am very happy with my purchase, however I would warn prospectve purchasers that you'll probablly be in for a fret dress from your local luthier (or yourself), some new bridge pins and possibly some locking tuners (Schaller 8-). If your up for that this is a little gem! Hey experienced guitarists probably would want to set it up properly anyway!

      Comments about Voyage-Air Guitar Songwriter VAOM-04 Travel Acoustic Guitar:

      Although I've only had it for two weeks, I am totally convinced of its worth to me. My VAOM -04
      has its own "voice", but that being said, it is easy to play and tonally compares favorably with my D-18
      and Alvarez Yairi cy118. Its hinge seems of quality, and anyway has a lifetime warranty. Finally a guitar to evade both the airline restrictions on overhead storage, and the "not to careful" baggage handlers on the tarmac.
      Thank You Voyage Air :)

          Comments about Voyage-Air Guitar Songwriter VAOM-04 Travel Acoustic Guitar:

          I travel a lot in my motorhome and always want a guitar along. I'd bought a Backpacker a few years ago but haven't played it much, it sounds way to tinny (like a ukulele) and has little volume. The Voyage-air, on the other hand, has the full sound of my Aria full-size guitar with the advantage of taking up half the room. I've only had it a week but already love it. The sound is every bit as good as any guitar that I've ever played. The case appears very well thought out, should protect it well. Would have liked a zipper pocket for tuner, capo and spare picks. I look forward to many years of playing.

          Good Sound, poor quality control

          By Aviator1

          from Kentucky

          Comments about Voyage-Air Guitar Songwriter VAOM-04 Travel Acoustic Guitar:

          I really like the sound of this guitar, after I put a good set of Gibson strings on it. It's great to have a full sounding travel guitar after having owned several "Sticks with strings". For the most part the guitar looks good and it's definately a keeper. However, I feel ripped off a bit by Voyage Air because of the poor quality control on the neck. The neck has a definate rough spot at a location that doesn't interfere with my hand that I consider a blemish. The Voyage Air folks basicaly said too bad, learn to live with it. I consider that poor service and felt the guitar should have been discounted as a blemished item. I won't send it back but I would never buy one of these without playing and inspecting it first. And, since no one sells these in a local store that means I'll never buy another.Can't beat having a full sized guitar on the road.
          Everything but the neck was great.
          Would have been a great value except for the neck.
