KLOS Carbon Fiber Travel Guitar | Review

klos review

Some history on the company before I begin my KLOS Review: Back in May of 2015 brothers Ian & Adam Klosowiak launched their first kickstarter for the carbon fiber guitar that they designed and built themselves. Fast Forward to February 2017 and they are launching their newest version of KLOS Guitars! The idea for the carbon fiber travel guitar came shortly after Alan left his dorm window open when he went away on break. While he was gone the cold dry air did what it tends to do to wooden guitars and cracked it from the bridge all the way to the end of the soundboard. They wanted to make a guitar that could handle all elements as well as the dangers of traveling with a guitar. Thanks to Ian’s mechanical background and his knowledge of guitars the first KLOS carbon fiber travel guitar became a reality.

Carbon fiber guitars have a great lasting sound and really are the best guitars for traveling. These guitars are much more sturdy and will stay that way for a lot longer than wood. The way they are constructed takes all the credit for this.  Guitar makers have swapped out the traditional wooden body for carbon fiber adding unbeatable strength.

Carbon Fiber Guitars?

In a 2009 article titled A Buyer’s Guide to Carbon-Fiber Instruments featured in the music magazine “All Things Strings”, a prediction was made that carbon fiber would begin replacing wood in string instruments in the low price range.

When the new guitars arrived at my door I had trouble believing that an acoustic instrument could actually fit in such a small box. Journey Instruments had agreed to send me two guitars to test – one solid-top wood guitar and one carbon fiber guitar – and I honestly had no idea what to expect.
