Carbon Fiber Guitars — KLOS Guitars

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.

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.

Top 5 Best Travel Guitars that Don’t Suck

What was it that sparked my interest in travel guitars?  I’m traveling on beach vacation in a couple weeks and I am facing a tough decision.   Should I lug my massive full-sized guitar all the way across the ocean or just leave it at home and not have anything?

I decided I didn’t like either option. So I just went out and bought a new 3/4-size travel guitar.

That was only a week ago and there hasn’t been a moment where I’ve regretted purchasing the mini-guitar. Sure, it doesn’t have the same volume as a full-size guitar but it feels great in my hands and it’s going to travel nicely in the overhead bins.

I did quite a bit of research before buying this guitar (I know, it sounded like an impulse buy but it wasn’t). I thought it might be useful to share with you what I found when it comes to travel guitars. My goal was to find a travel guitar that didn’t suck.
