Fender Releases Acoustic Guitars Fit for Travellers
1
Fender is proud to announce two guitars set to become a traveler's dream, the CD-140S VA and the CD-60 VA. These guitars, which have been seen on ABC's "Shark Tank" hit television show, will go anywhere thanks to their revolutionary Voyage-Air patented hinged neck design, allowing players to fold the guitar in half and store it in its specially designed gig bag for incredibly convenient transport.
A finely appointed and rich-sounding instrument, the CD-140S VA has a solid spruce top with quartersawn standard "X" bracing, mahogany back and sides and mahogany neck. Other features include an elegant tortoiseshell pickguard and mother-of-pearl rosette, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with 3mm dot inlays, rosewood bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle and white with black-dot bridge pins. Special gig bag included.
The CD-60 VA has a spruce top with quartersawn standard "X" bracing, mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck.

    And? I always tune my guitar before i play a gig. That is not really a problem. Not at all.

    but there is a difference between tuning a few cents on each string when you pick it up and having to completely re-tune it.

    Cool idea but i can see this as more of a Bugatti Veyron of the guitar world. An engineering exercise showing what can be done but only a few people having them.

    I agree, however consider that innovations need to exist as a "niche" product in some form before they or ideas from them start to trickle down into the rest of the market. I can't be the only one who gets nervous seeing that angled headstock facing outwards in a bag...
