Durable Travel Guitars

The KLOS Carbon Fiber Guitar is Built for Adventure and Sound

— February 12, 2018 — World
The KLOS Carbon Fiber Guitar uses modern materials and manufacturing to create a perfect travel guitar. The use of carbon fiber in the guitar keeps the weight of the body down, but also ensures a robust and durable design. The body is scratch- and impact-proof, while also maintaining a flexibility that ensures the body will not shatter. While visually stunning, the KLOS Carbon Fiber Guitar, features an unsanded, unpolished and unpainted exterior. The carbon fiber was left intentionally raw as an aesthetic choice to highlight the authentic use of carbon fiber in the instrument.

The KLOS Carbon Fiber Guitar is incredibly compact, coming in at just 24 3/4". The blackwood fingerboard and mahogany neck give the guitar a traditional feel and ensure an easy playing experience. The Bolt-on neck construction gives users the ability to break the guitar down without any tools and make it even more compact. Carbon fiber stiffening rods can be added to the neck, making the guitar even more resilient in a variety of climates.
