The Carry-on travel guitar is a portable travel-sized guitar that plays and feels like a serious full-sized instrument. Constructed using single piece Okoume bodies and necks and featuring a coil-splittable mini humbucker, the Carry-on travel guitars combine true tone and feel beyond their size. The guitar is supplied with either an award-winning amPlug 2 FLY Guitar headphone amp in the Carry-on Standard pack or an award-winning FLY 3 Bluetooth mini amp with the Carry-on Deluxe pack. Great tone on the go is now available to all travelling guitarists.
The Carry-on travel guitar was designed in the UK by Blackstar in association with the master luthiers at Gordon Smith Guitars UK. The resulting play and feel is like no other travel size guitar.
Using a single billet of wood for the body and neck means that the grain will be an even match across the instrument and allows the guitar to reverberate freely and evenly – a glue join would have been a barrier to reverberation.
The body and neck are made from single pieces of Okoume, a bright, lightweight tonewood with a more open grain than mahogany.
String through body design and 1:14 ratio sealed tuners for excellent sustain and stable tuning.
