Default Voyage Air VAD-1 Premier Series All-Solid Acoustic Electric

Voyage Air VAD-1 SOLD




The VAD-1 is a full-size Dreadnought guitar, designed and built without compromise and compares to the best of any instruments from major brand manufacturers. The VAD-1 is Voyage Air's top of the line Premier Series guitar with solid Mahogany back and sides and solid Sitka Spruce top and scalloped X bracing. Voyage Air guitars are unique in that they fold at the neck-body joint with a patented hinge. With forward-shifted, scalloped braces, this Premier Series all-solid acoustic guitar sounds great. This is the only VAD-1 available in the world, as far as I know, and is not in stock at Voyage Air. This is a warm full-sounding dread with great volume and playability. Here's a review I did a while back:
https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=499825

Most importantly, there is no compromise on tone, volume, playability or looks.

These are now "legacy" guitars with none being produced currently. The last new price on these was $1,595. Please check the specs below. There is a good reason these almost never come up for sale. I checked with Voyage Air and there are no VAD-1's coming in the foreseeable future. This is the rarest of the Voyage Air guitars.

The VAD-1 Premier Series guitars are usually pre-sold out and rarely hit the market new - or used. This is the next-best thing - used in excellent condition. I have played many professional shows with this one on almost every continent. They travel great and, even if you don't travel, this is a full-size all-solid dreadnaught guitar.

Fits easily in most overhead compartments on airlines

That is a solid buy on a good guitar. Not just a good folding guitar, but a good guitar.

Thanks Tacoma. They are excellent guitars that happen to fold. Harvey's other folding "Voyage Air" guitars start at $10,000. This is for anyone who wishes they had a D-18 they could take with them anywhere.

I would like to move this today and ship tomorrow. Make me a reasonable offer and I'll hopefully ship it to you tomorrow. After tomorrow I won't have any major desire to move it quickly so act now. Send offers via PM and I'll try to answer this evening. I'll be out of pocket from 3 until 7 Mountain Time.

Hi this is a long shot but I will be coming into some cash in a week or so. Would you ship this to me in Australia?

Thanks
