Designed as a dynamic, lightweight alternative to a full size guitar, the Vagabond really knows how to get around... an impressive rich, balanced, and satisfying sound in a guitar specially designed to travel light and easy. Since 1981, the Vagabond has pioneered the travel guitar, defining the perfect marriage of size and function. Now the Vagabond leads this new generation. Other compact guitars are either shrunken versions of standard guitars, too bulky for full travel convenience, or too small to develop any sound at all. The Vagabond is a work of functional art in every respect, renowned for fine fretwork and precise intonation, great sound, and still very stowable. The Vagabond sounds as great as it looks. Beautifully handcrafted of the highest quality materials, the Vagabond was designed by musician and luthier Kevin Smith. Kevin patiently experimented with different wood, materials, and soundhole placement to create a truly remarkable and distinct instrument that is highly respected by collectors, travelers, and professionals in the music industry.
|How does the Vagabond travel?:|
Many people have asked how the Vagabond travels via airplane, especially in the last year with restrictions on carry-on luggage. In August I booked a budget round trip flight from Albany, NY to Redding, CA. My route included 2 airlines and four plane changes each way. I loosened the strings, packed my vagabond in its bag and checked it through baggage. My Vagabond arrived safe and sound after both flights. The Vagabond's tough construction has been proven again and again over 20 years.
Happy flying! -- Kevin Smith, luthier
