Flyer Steel-string

The Flyer is our truly unique take on the acoustic steel-string guitar, with a sound much bigger than its size.

The Flyer's tone is bursting with personality — an intriguing blend of acoustic flavors, combining flattop, jazz archtop, resonator, and Macaferri-style elements. Echoes of vintage Stellas and classic blues sounds mix beautifully with the chop and responsiveness of a jazz box. The midrange is lively, open, and very vocal — incredible for slide playing, and excellent for complex fingerstyle where note definition is essential.

The solid Sitka Spruce top is curved into a "radiused" arc shape, yielding a stiff but lightweight face that responds very differently from your average flattop guitar. The floating bridge and custom-designed wooden tailpiece contribute to a fast, responsive attack, and offer enhanced adjustability and serviceability. A full-scale (25") 22-fret neck and compact body result in a very satisfying, full-sounding guitar.

Unplugged, the Flyer has much more volume and "cut" than its small size suggests, with projection that rivals many larger guitars. Plugged in, the Flyer's distinctive personality shines through the high-fidelity D-Tar onboard electronics, resulting in an incredibly playable and comfortable stage acoustic with a look and sound that really stand out.

Combining the ruggedness and portability of our classic Journeyman guitars with the response and character of our Acoustic line, our Flyer is among our most unique and innovative instruments.

Available in 6 string, standard-tuned or baritone configuration.
