VAOM-04 - Travel Relic
There are 2 marks on the upper bout. One is appx 2” (5 cm), goes through the finish and is in the wood (but not through and no structural damage). The second mark is a bit above it and is appx ¾” (1.9 cm) and is in the finish only. Neither of these imperfections affects the structure, playability or tone of the instrument and it is fully covered by our Voyage Air warranty except for the stated cosmetic issues. If you choose to, these should be able to be mended by any qualified local guitar tech.

I've been on my first tour in Europe and the Voyage-Air VAOM04 left handed is fabulous and with over 9 flights on the trip never had a single incident. Nobody even knows I'm carrying a guitar! Sound is great and I've outfitted it with an LR Baggs M80 soundhole pickup. Sounds great unplugged or plugged in. I've gone on two 6 week trips now and I don't even miss my Martins and in some ways the Voyage-Air guitar plays better. Very happy with the investment and will continue to use it every time I have to fly and play shows. It also comes in handy for camping and hikes, etc.
It's great to have a guitar you don't have to worry about. Thanks Voyage-Air Guitar!

To sum up, the guitar is pretty awesome value, the folding design works great, and it has nice action out of the box, lovely tone for finger style. It plays really really well. Much more like a far more expensive instrument. The action was low and easy without adjustment, tones lovely and balanced to my ear (for finger style). Intonation good. Really easy to play, the neck width, the woods, it's all really good. I did a lot of research before I brought my VAOM-04 happy to report its main feature, folding, works a treat. It's perfect for travelling. When its unfolded you really would know it's not a standard OM. So I have to say I am very happy with my purchase.

Although I've only had it for two weeks, I am totally convinced of its worth to me. My VAOM -04 has its own "voice", but that being said, it is easy to play and tonally compares favorably with my D-18 and Alvarez Yairi cy118. Its hinge seems of quality, and anyway has a lifetime warranty. Finally a guitar to evade both the airline restrictions on overhead storage, and the "not to careful" baggage handlers on the tarmac. Thank You Voyage Air

I have lots of traveling to do for work in the very near future, so I picked up a Voyage Air VAOM-04 Acoustic for all the flights. I'll be damned, the instrument sounds wonderful. It's crazy to have a neck that folds, but I unfolded it and the guitar had one string just barely out of tune (my Martin goes farther out of tune when I put it in its case and walk around with it)! It sounds great, fingerpicking is fine, and strummed it sounded full and warm. I have to admit I was skeptical, but I researched it quite a bit and took a dive. I'm so happy now!
