Journeyman Nylon-string — the next generation
Our electric nylon-string has been one of our best-sellers over the years — the combination of truly realistic acoustic-style tone and responsiveness, mixed with a rugged, compact, and feedback-proof design, has made it a longtime favorite for many of our customers.
Now, as a result of feedback and conversations with players and dealers, we.re happy to introduce the next generation of our Journeyman Nylon-string guitar!
This latest version of the Journeyman Nylon features a traditional, glued-on bridge. With the same low profile as a traditional acoustic bridge, this new bridge gives this electric nylon a more traditional feel, with a string-to-top distance very similar to an acoustic. Since it's glued-on, the new bridge also reduces microphonics and piezo "thump", making it ideal for players with more energetic right-hand technique.
A heavily chambered body and high-tech titanium truss rod let this guitar weigh in at an amazing, acoustic-like 4.8 lbs.!
Our new tilt-neck adjuster maintains the user-adjustable action feature from our previous Swift model.
The Journeyman Electric Nylon is also now available with a 1 7/8" nut width and radiusedfingerboard as standard options, for a slick and comfortable profile that will appeal to the crossover electric player. (The classical-width, flat fingerboard neck is still available also.)
