OF410 travel bag guitar thorough review


​Handcrafted from carefully selected sustainable wood

First Class™️ wooden Travel Bag Guitars are handcrafted with carefully selected solid wood tops and backs. CITES-compliant continuously cultivable varieties such as North American Sitka Spruce, African mahogany, Ovangkol, and Pau Fellow are selected for the structural part, and genuine mahogany is used for the neck and reinforcement parts, and using Ebony for the bridge pin.

Ergonomic design

First Class™️The Travel Bag Guitar is one of the most ergonomically designed acoustic guitars available.

The tilt angle provided by The Manzer © wedge reduces stress on the wrist by naturally transferring the weight of the fingering arm to the fingerboard, and by allowing the strings to be stroked at an easy angle, shoulder tension and fatigue are reduced. 

scale and playability

First Class™️ The FP412 travel bag guitar uses a scale of 24.5 inches (622 mm), which is close to the Gibson scale, with moderate string tension for easy fingering and sufficient It is compatible with acoustic performance. In addition, FF412/422C adopts 25.5 inch full scale, and nylon string model adopts full classic scale of 650mm.

The standard neck of the steel string model has a nut width of 44.5 mm and a thin C shape, making it highly versatile, and the narrow neck (N notation) specification is suitable for small hands. Uses a narrow nut width of 42.7 mm and easy to play. All nylon string models have a standard nut width of 52mm.

​Design of neck detachment system

The neck attachment and detachment system, which has been completed through repeated improvements, not only enables the neck to be attached and detached within 20 seconds, but also has a fine adjustment function for the neck angle. In other words, you can change from a fingerstyle picking setting to a hard stroke picking setting by simply turning the knob on the back of the body! This is a great advantage for guitarists who play in different styles or need to change neck settings.

Carefully selected parts

First Class™️ Travel bag guitars have parts which used in high-end guitars. Pegs are Glover Mini or Journey locking tuners, nuts and saddles are genuine bovine bone, ebony bridge pins, and Elixir phosphor bronze strings. These support the original tone of the acoustic guitar, which is warm and well-balanced.

About tone

First Class™️The first priority in designing the travel bag guitar was tone. Solid tonewoods, Mahogany neck and block, bridge and fretboard materials all work together to create a surprisingly rich tone from a small, easy-to-play guitar. If you send the output of the JourneyTek piezo pickup to PA console or amplifier, First Class™️ Travel Bag Guitar brings to the stage a tone reminiscent of a larger acoustic guitar.

About pickup

First Class™️The Travel Bag Guitar is equipped with a JourneyTek™ piezo pickup. Designed with high-output German-made piezo elements, it fully expresses the wonderful tones of musical instruments in a well-balanced and clear manner. No batteries required.

In addition, for those who require more detailed tone adjustments, the battery-powered pre-amp module EPS001-05(sold separately) which equipped with a condenser microphone that allows control of tone/volume/pickup balance. EPS001-05 can be easily added without tools.
