DESIGNED FOR TRAVEL
The Overhead travel guitar uses a patented collapsible neck system which allows for assembly/disassembly in a matter of seconds.
After packing in its travel backpack the Overhead travel guitar can be carried-on to most major airlines, easily fitting in the overhead bin compartment.
Travel backpack includes a TSA compliant laptop tablet fold-out panel which can be scanned by airport security without having to separately remove laptop.
Proprietary under-bridge transducer pickup system accurately amplifies the guitar and comes with all Overhead guitars.
FULL TONE IN A TRAVEL BODY
The wedge design gives a lower shoulder/bout depth that’s deeper than a dreadnought, allowing the smaller body size to deliver great volume and booming bass.
Bone nut, compensated bone saddle, and ebony bridge pins all help produce the the tone preferred by acoustic guitarists.
Traditional sound-hole design with forward-shifted, tapered and scalloped X-bracing maximizes the resonance and volume of the soundboard.
COMFORTABLE TO PLAY
The wedge design angles the guitar into your body which places the guitar in a comfortable position for fingerboard access and viewing.
The dual-action steel truss-rod enables fine tuning of relief to suit any playing style.
Satin-finish low-c profile neck make this 24.5 inch scale super comfortable to play.
We inspect each an every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
