Ned Robbins knows quite a bit about airline travel. In fact, he’s a full-time pilot for a major airline! His guitar is always along for the ride… in fact, Ned will soon own the Voyage-Air guitar with the most total airline miles.
“I play bluegrass music,” explained Ned. “I went to a local jam in Phoenix, AZ, and one of the other players had one of your guitars. As a pilot, I had been looking for a travel guitar that was easy to take along on trips. I played your guitar, and decided to order one.
“I actually have 2 of your guitars. The first one I ordered from your website: the VAOM-02 model. I did not tell my wife that I had already ordered one, and she had ordered one for me as a Christmas present - the VAOM-04. I like both of them but the one my wife ordered sounds a little better than the other one.
“I originally contacted Voyage-Air guitar to find out about the strings. I like the way the guitar sounds and plays so much that I only want to replace the strings with the same ones it came with.
“Now that I’ve spent some time traveling with the Voyage-Air, I have a few comments:
“I like the way the case for the guitar appears to be a "normal" back-pack. Most people never suspect it is a guitar, and this is great from a security point of view. I feel comfortable leaving the case unattended for a short period, as compared to a "regular" guitar case that is not safe to leave unattended at all.
“I have played with some other travelers who have the carry-on electric guitars. While they are still trying to figure out how to plug their guitar into the clock-radio in the hotel room, I am up and playing a full-size acoustic guitar in under a minute.
“Finally, the compact size of the Voyage-Air guitar case meets all size requirements for carry-on luggage. It fits in the overhead bins of every style plane in our fleet. And it legally fits under the seats of most planes. As a pilot, I’ve been able to personally confirm this.
“Thanks for the fine product. I’ve already handed out all the business cards that came with the guitar. Send me more!”
