18 Countries, 4 Continents, 11 months

Bob Smith Chilean-Research-Station Antarctica PeninsulaMy Voyage-Air guitar is a Premier Series VAOM-1C which I bought in Hilo Hawaii last April when I was there for the 50th anniversary Merry Monarch festival. It has been with me since then to Australia, California, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Holland, France, Greece, Switzerland, California, Hawaii, Australia, Hawaii, California, Argentina, Uruguay, Falkland Islands , Antarctica, Argentina, Chile, Peru, California, Louisiana, New York, California, Hawaii, and now back to Australia. 18 unique countries on 4 continents in 11 months.

I principally play finger-style and have been intrigued by the concept of a 'Zero fret' for a while. I found the action a bit high for me so took it down a bit and ramped the string exit at the pegs to relax the guitar too. It is not only playable but I feel it has a sweet sound which has merit on its own, not just a 'travel guitar'. I had pretty much given up on travel guitars because I like to play for the sound, not the exercise and had given away all previous attempts. My next task is amplification which I will likely do using 4 passive K&K pickups with one for the back running to a stereo jack and external use an LR Baggs Mix-Pro stereo in belt preamp.

Great guitar - outstanding value - true to its name!

Regards,
Bob
