Travel LA

About the project

Recently I’ve been getting a wave of repeat orders. Often this is because the first instrument custom-made for a client is expensive and unique to their character. However, it is inconvenient and extravagant to drag such guitars on trips. Thus the idea to make a compact instrument for traveling started to develop.

One of these cases is this project.

The customer already has a signature LP LA that I made. Now he needed a travel version with similar sound characteristics, only smaller and lighter. Another feature is an active module with a set of various overloads so that you can rehearse on the road with headphones and with the usual electric guitar sound.
