This is a beautiful example of our original 13" Flyer design.

Compact and comfy, this model has an endearing and unique tonality - perky, quick, and responsive, with echoes of resonators and Macaferris. The throaty, vocal-like midrange response and crisp trebles are excellent for complex fingerstyle or quick flatpicking, with excellent string separation and note definition. A full 25" scale and 22 fret neck plays just like a full size guitar.

This Flyer is in pristine condition, in a beautiful "Vintage Natural" tint that warms up the natural blonde colors of the maple box and spruce top. The warm golden-brown Pau Ferro fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece perfectly accent the vibe.

Here's Mark Patton bluesing it up....

    #870 Journeyman Nylon - AAA flame top, gorgeous!

A beautiful example of our most current Journeyman Nylon design. With the glued on "tie-block" bridge and flat top, this guitar blends traditional design elements with modern features and playability.

Scale length is 25.5" The neck has a 20" radius fingerboard and 1 7/8" nut, which make it friendly and comfortable for the steel-string or electric guitarist, while still allowing room for expressive vibrato techniques and precise left-hand fingering.

The body is heavily chambered mahogany, and the end result is an exceptionally lightweight and lively guitar with an almost 'acoustic' feel - final weight is 5.2 lbs, comparable to many acoustic instruments!

The black-bound AAA flame top is striking under the tobacco sunburst finish, and stands out onstage with subtle class and sophistication.

Volume and Tone controls give this guitar a wide variety of plugged-in tones, and the full-range piezo system is extremely responsive to the colors and shadings of the player's touch and technique - just like a fine classical instrument.

Here's a quick clip to demonstrate this guitar:

A natural choice for stage playing, as well as jazz and bossa nova, this guitar delivers an authentic nylon-string sound and experience in a slim, rugged, and feedback-resistant package.

Available now for $3800, including gig bag.
