The advantage of real carbon fiber construction is it’s proven stability and durability – in low temperatures the body won’t get brittle or crack, and in high temperatures it won’t warp. No worries about fingerboards delaminating, or bridges coming off. Carbon fiber fabric construction provides a purer transfer of energy and significantly longer sustain as well. The Patented Soundboard Design of Journey Instruments’ carbon fiber soundboards employ an offset soundhole design with a unidirectional carbon fiber weave and a patented dampening panel for an amazing wood-like tone with impressive bass response. Back and sides are made from a carbon fiber twill weave with a proprietary dampening layup. The Wedge design also has a lower shoulder/bout depth that’s deeper than a dreadnought, allowing the smaller body size to deliver great volume and booming bass. The wedge at the side of the rib bevel, arm bevel, and scoopaway make this the most comfortable guitar you’ll ever play! The Shuttle case even has a TSA compliant laptop fold-out panel which may also be scanned by airport security without having to one after the other remove a laptop. The case has handles on the side and top, hideaway backpack straps, and an additional pocket for a large 17” laptop in the back of the straps.
A STAGEWORTHY TRAVEL GUITAR YOU CAN TAKE ANYWHERE: The OF660 was designed after conducting hundreds of hours of research to design a guitar that fits the demands of professional musicians. DETACHABLE AND ADJUSTABLE NECK: The Overhead Shuttle guitar neck detaches in seconds, so you’ll pack your guitar away in less than a minute. Our patented detachable stainless steel neck mechanism enables instant adjustment of the neck angle, this means that you’ll change the action in seconds.
TRUE CARBON FIBER: Unlike other brands that use substantial amounts of plastic injection molding, HPL or wood in their “carbon fiber guitars”, the OF660 premium carbon fiber Shuttle guitar is made from quality pre-impregnated carbon fiber fabrics on all core components for consistent tone and ultimate durability – soundboard, body, neck, fingerboard and bridge. This advantage is proven stability and durability as well as a purer transfer of energy and significantly longer sustain.
14 FRET NECK JOINT WITH SCOOPAWAY: This Shuttle guitar plays like a full sized guitar with a 24.5 inch scale. The scoopaway gives access to all 20 frets, but helps retain much of the volume of a non-cutaway guitar. The low-c profile neck is super comfortable to play. ULTRA ERGONOMIC DESIGN: The OF660 features a thicker Manzer Wedge design that angles the guitar for extra comfort which allows the smaller body size to deliver great volume and booming bass.
CARRY-ON CASE/BACKPACK: After packing in its Shuttle backpack, the Overhead Shuttle guitar may also be carried-on all major airlines, easily fitting in the overhead compartment. The Shuttle backpack includes room for pedals, cables, tablets and accessories and has a padded TSA compliant laptop fold-out panel for quickly moving through airport security. PREMIUM PASSIVE PICKUP: Proprietary under-bridge German-made Piezo pickup system as it should be amplifies the guitar and comes with all Overhead guitars
THE ULTIMATE TRAVEL GUITAR: If you’re on the lookout for the best Shuttle experience you’ll ever enjoy – look no further. This guitar has made it up Mt Everest, traveled through the Sahara, played in a wedding in Antarctica, and island-hopped in the Caribbean and Asia. If you’re truly going to Shuttle and you love to play guitar – this is the one.
