Product Highlights

Product Description

What the heck is that? We've heard it more than once regarding the Backpacker. But it's a real steel string guitar, complete with quality construction including: High-Quality enclosed chrome tuners, solid woods and special, light top bracing. The top is spruce. The neck, back and sides are all mahogany just like the best made dreadnoughts. As strange as it looks, the Backpacker has a surprisingly loud and rich tone. For long hauls in the car or bus, camping and lots of other times when you don't have room for a full-sized acoustic, the Backpacker is the ideal solution. Comes with strap and High-Quality Gig Bag.

Backpackers are fully playable compact travel guitars economically designed to meet the needs of musicians on the run! For their size, both this original steel-string style and the nylon-string classical model have a surprisingly rich and loud tone. Ruggedly built to withstand the rigors of outdoor situations like camping, hiking, and summer music festivals.
