7-string practice/travel guitar!

i'm actualy in need of a travel 7 string... *i was thinking more along the lines of the martin backpacker than the fernandes nomad though... *but thinking about it, electric would be the way to go, because the backpacker would just sound way too weird in a 7 string version... * i wonder how hard it would be for me to pick one of those up... * * before feb 20th... * *

7-string practice/travel guitar!

I saw dweezil zappa rip some mad riffs on one of those guitars. I have the martin back packer but I am an electric player and the fernandes would rock.

I was actually joking with a friend of mine one time (a couple years ago) about these guitars. *I said "I wonder how long it'll take before they'll make a 7-string version!" *

I meant it as a joke and I can't believe it actually happened! *Gawd!

Re: 7-string practice/travel guitar! - check it out!

I'm not sure any other bigger well-known companies make a small 7-string guitar. All of the main traveler type guitars are 6-string unfortunately. I believe a company called Wing Instruments makes a 7 string travel guitar that is pretty compact. They market it towards being able to fit into most 21" carry on luggage.

I've never played one, but I have seen their booth at NAMM. They look pretty legit, but they better for $1k. I'm not sure what your budget is, but this guitar would fit your needs. It's just crazy expensive.

Given the age of this thread, I imagine the OP's needs are not particularly relevant anymore. With that said, thank you for posting because this company is interesting as heck! https://winginstruments.com

Isn't every headless 7 string guitar falling in the travel category ?

(There should be reward for this 18 year thread resurrection.)

I think the guitar is interesting in and of itself.
I agree about the reward.
