The Road Trip and Journey Junior guitars were created with the goal of producing the best possible sound from a moderately sized body. These small, ergonomic acoustic guitars feature The Wedge design's asymmetric body thickness and are ideal for singer-songwriters, traveling musicians, and younger generations who want more volume and tone in a more compact guitar. This is the perfect solution for those guitarists. By making the lower body thicker instead of thinner on the top, it creates a fuller, louder sound from a guitar that's easy to handle.

What is an ergonomic guitar?

If you think your old acoustic guitar is too hard to play, the Road Trip and Journey Junior are the answer.

Easy access to frets: The compact body and 24.5-inch scale plus The Wedge design keep the neck and top of the body at an ergonomic playing angle. The tilt of the neck transfers the weight of the arm to the fingerboard, making fingering easier and especially useful when playing chords such as barre chords. Beginners can help learning these chords, and experienced guitarists can reduce the stress on their bodies and prevent arm and joint injuries during hours of playing and rehearsing. .

Ease of Stroke and Picking: By tilting the body at a more natural angle, it prevents the guitarist from "bending over" the guitar, encouraging more efficient strokes and picks in a natural position. It encourages beginners to practice the correct posture and allows them to practice efficiently for a long time, and for experienced guitarists, it can be expected to reduce pain and stress in the shoulders, neck, and joints.

Guitar suitable for petite and young people

The short 24.5 inch scale, petite body, and The Wedge design combine to make the Road Trip and Journey Junior a great guitar for petite and young players alike. Large guitars are difficult to play, and it is the best choice for those who have been dissatisfied with the feeble sound of a 3/4 size guitar. The Wedge design makes it as easy to play as a short-scale 21-23 inch junior guitar, but it sounds more like a full-scale guitar.

About pickup

The Road Trip and Journey Junior models with pickups feature JourneyTek™ piezo pickups. Designed with high-output German-made piezo elements, it fully expresses the wonderful tones of musical instruments in a well-balanced and clear manner. Of course, no batteries are required.
