From the Desk of President and CEO...
Thank you for all the congratulatory texts, emails and posts! It's a real treat when a young company is invited to show its products on network TV, and certainly flattering when you get invited back three times. But it's unbelievably flattering when your competition tips their hat and gives you a public 'attaboy'! We owe it all to you - our employees, our customers, our fans and our friends. With your help we have proven to the world that it is possible to improve upon perfection. The art, craftsmanship and genesis of fine lutherie brought to this country over 175 years ago has been updated, refreshed and made more portable for today's mobile society. Most important of all, we did this without sacrificing any of the quality that we've all come to love in a skillfully devised and great sounding guitar. (Read More)

Shark Tank?
It's the hit Friday night show on ABC TV. Fans and friends of Voyage-Air Guitar know that three years ago, we declined a million dollar offer from the Sharks.  Since then, we’ve built a world-wide network of hundreds of retail dealers in the USA, coupled with strategically selected international distributors.  Then, ABC Network ran a Shark Tank follow-up feature during the second season.  That helped to catapult our success.  Product orders continue to grow: there’s nothing else that compares to a Voyage-Air Guitar.

Well, that success caught the attention of the folks at Shark Tank, and they invited us back for another chance.  They want a piece of the action at Voyage-Air Guitar!  That’s never happened on the show, ever: the Sharks have never invited a company back for a second try.  

And the results are completely over the topWith this episode, it's not just about investment money. You’ll have to see the show on November 9 to believe it. Nothing like this has ever happened on Shark Tank.

To coincide with the Nov 9 airing of Shark Tank, Voyage-Air Guitar will have special phone lines open, special sale pricing during the show, and special prizes and discounts for the best Internet Tweets! To sign up and be eligible for these one-night-only offers, click here.

Voyage-Air Guitar Shark Tank UPDATE (2011)


A Year and a half ago, our company was invited to appear on the new ABC TV Reality Show called “Shark Tank.” The Shark investors put a million-dollar offer on the table, but in the end, Voyage-Air CEO Jeff Cohen walked away to build the company on his own.

The Sharks wanted to find out how our company has grown without their help. Filmed at McCabe’s Guitar Shop, this follow-up segment has actually appeared twice: most recently, on Friday, July 22, 2011.

We’re celebrating with a limited-time Shark Tank Special discount for the viewers. We’re offering the breakthrough Transit Series guitars, including the backpack-style case, at the lowest-ever Internet price.

    I received my VAOM-1C and boy does it sing!  I am the proud and happy owner of several top-notch Martins: a D35 Johnny Cash, a HD28e, a solid DCPA4R as well as a 1973 00-18. I also had a 2003 D18 which I sold because it wasn't so good. I was expecting the VAOM-1C to sound ok but not more. "Can't have the best of both worlds" I thought. Well, now I do. It is just exquisite, so melodic and yet with a surprising sustain and expressivity. It is a true jewel at a more than decent price! All the Best and THANK YOU!

    My wife and I travel a lot and in the past have had issues with taking a guitar with me......they're either too bulky for the overhead compartment, or I have to let the luggage handlers toss around my guitars like they're a bag of beans. I recently purchased one of your VAOM-04 guitars, and I'm totally impressed with the sound and the playability of this instrument. My first choice is my Martins, but since I received the VAOM-O4 I haven't put it down. I would recommend this guitar to any player, even if you don't travel that much. I'm looking forward to my next trip. I may just spend most of the trip playing this guitar.
    Great Job Voyage-Air.

    It’s considered a “travel guitar,” and it truly is a remarkably portable instrument; however, that label does it a disservice, because honestly, it’s a damn nice guitar. It just happens to have a nifty set of hinges that allow the neck to fold over on the top, making it far more compact and transport friendly. I love my Telair!

    I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and genius behind this amazingly compact, but great sounding guitar!! I work in the movie industry and travel quite a bit, and being able to bring my guitar as a carry-on wherever I go is just what I've been looking for! The overall sound is amazingly rich for its size, and the folding mechanics work like a dream! If you’re wondering if it's worth getting, the answer is a big YES!!

    I bought a VAD-04 strictly for travel and light use. The day I bought it I paid a visit to United Airlines. As I was walking up to the counter the clerk said that he had seen these before and that there was no problem taking it on as carry-on. .I think that this is a great value and a nice sounding piece All in all it is a winner in my book. I’ve heard less sound from much more expensive instruments. I may mike it because I think it compares to my Taylor 814ce and Breedlove it surprised me!

    I travel a lot, and for years, I schlepped my heavy Goodall Jumbo, always worried about it getting damaged and stolen.  I recently purchased a Voyage Air guitar and love it.  Its light, gets on planes, and sounds terrific. It has made travelling with a guitar a no-brainer.  Even after closing and opening, it stays very close to being in tune. I recommend this guitar to anyone who likes to play wherever they go.
