Leave This Guitar In The Snow!

Recommended Posts

Leave it outside the tent in the Arctic or by the bbq/grill in Arizona? Wild claims!

 

It sounds a bit boxy, I thought, but still better than many guitars I have previously owned!

It has a few videos down the bottom of their page:

It says its made out of a "natural composite" as opposed to what? Do they grow composite panels and harvest them? Is it any more natural than carbon fibers or plywood and does anyone care? Its an engineered material and I'm sure they use plenty of resin just like fiberglass parts.

Sorry - tired of dealing with marketing people today.

I wasn't terribly impressed by the sound but I'll be sure to bring one the next time I go camping near the North Pole. Its not cheap either.

I don't mind their 0 sized Savoy:

No more humidity worries, checking, heat/cold - leave it in the car while shopping/drinking/dancing? Play it on the beach, leave it in the tent when camping and the ultimate endurance test - take it to blues jam night! :rolleyes:

 

Put it in a Hiscox case if they make that size and throw it in the plane overhead, throw it in the car/truck....

 

And the big big test - let the nephews play it!

I had the chance to try this one:

Its got 1 3/4" nut which I find very comfortable and the sound was certainly acceptable for casual use. Its also small for easy traveling. If you are really serious about one, should at least give this one a look (or listen) before choosing.
