Thanks MUCH for the photos of the guitars!

I'd been racking my brain after looking at the website to understand if there had been a new design to the bag and wondering how they made a full scale crossover still fit in the bag first used for a short scale guitar.

Now it's clear it's the same great bag (really, really great!) and it was immediately apparent how the same body can be used for two scale lengths. Nicely done.

Listened to some of the wood classical travel Journey's on youtube and very nice sounding.

Hope to hear more and more about the new carbon model including good recordings.

Weren't there supposed to be guitars somewhere in those pics? All in fun, I bet you had a great time at NAMM kramster. Looking forward to more.

Edit: Looking at these pictures again, I realize (sadly) that there are some things a Sable just can't provide for.

They put a lot of thought and experimenting into the nylon stringers.. and yes the wood guitars they have sound great. Newest one has a nice bevel...

That CF nylon has caught my eye. I wondered when they would do that. Now I want to try it.
Thanks for the up date.

I don't really need a removable neck these days...

if they build a Nylon Roadtrip on the other hand, I'm sure I'll be stuck buying one for the misses.

How does the new Journey carbon nylon string guitar sound? How does it feel?

Iím glad that Journey makes this guitar, although I probably wonít buy one. At least not any time soon.

I posted this in the other thread about this guitar:

https://journeyinstruments.com/produ...guitar-oc660m/

They are currently accepting 20 pre-orders for first run of manufacturing.

I would guess that whether or not they make any more after the first 20 depends on how quickly the first batch sells.

What are all those guitars doing in the photos? I expected more and different models. You're letting us down.
