I'm the proud owner of a new VAD-04 (purchased in Denver, CO in 2012). I've made a living singing and playing since the mid-sixties. This is one of the most exciting guitars I've ever owned.
I perform a nightly dinner show for Two Below Zero Dinner Sleigh Rides throughout ski season. I transport this guitar via snowmobile to a secluded dining facility at 9000' elevation with outside temps near "0" degrees. Staying in tune is absolutely no problem throughout my 45 min. performance.
I’ve installed a saddle pick-up, and it's now the guitar I use in my nightly show. I depend on this Voyage-Air guitar, as I work in a high-tourist environment.
Yes, I wish I'd had the opportunity to examine your other products as well. My local dealer only had the VAD-04 guitar in stock – the one that I purchased. I've actually suspended playing my Taylor T-5 (kind of a different animal, I realize) because of the better dynamics of this Voyage-Air guitar. The Voyage-Air is going with me everywhere now.
The picture of me on the snowmobile is not a fake. I really do put it on my back and ride the snowmobile to ‘work’ every day.
I really love this guitar.
