Entrepreneurs: Jeff Cohen and Josh Cohen
Voyage Air Guitar is a guitar with a folding neck, designed to fit into a backpack or an overhead compartment on an airplane.
Guitars are an essential tool for many when it comes time to pack up your bags and hit the road, however, they aren’t really built for travel. This is the first fold up guitar that makes traveling with a guitar simple and easy.
Once folded, the guitar slips into a custom carrying case that is the size of a standard backpack. These guitars look and sound incredible. When you open the guitar again, a process that takes about 5 seconds, it is still in tune!
