The steel strung electro-acoustic Viator delivers a focused, punchy, assertive tonality with high string-to-string definition and size defying volume, from its compact parlour sized body.

Themed on the small bodied parlour guitars from the 1920’s and 30’s, this beautiful steel strung travel guitar is constructed using sensibly harvested tonewoods of the finest quality, selected for their striking looks and exceptional sustain and warm mellow tones.

Solid Sitka spruce is the tonewood choice for the soundboard, renowned for its broad dynamic range, while a body crafted from sapele produces a strong bass response, midrange and top end definition, heightened by internal custom X scalloped bracing and sustain and harmonic qualities of the Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle. 

Eye catching features include maple body bindings and detailed purfling mirrored within the intricate rosette design, open headstock design, open-geared smooth action machine heads and functional pin style bridge design for effortless string changing.
