01 Mar Snap Dragon Guitars
Now that we can travel again these little guitars may be the answer!
Set up by keen guitarist, Gerry Dale, some years ago when he found out how difficult it was to carry a conventional instrument on board an aircraft. He wanted an instrument that felt like a standard guitar, with conventional tuning and set-up, but could also switch from storage to playing mode in a moment with ease.
As he couldn’t find one he designed his own and Snap Dragon was founded!
Snap Dragon Electric Guitars are designed with classic tones in mind, but all delivered in a modern and flexible package. Recording, performing on tour or practicing in a hotel room, they have one for you.
Models include the Snapaxe E, Traxe Solo, Traxe Jazz and Snapaka Twin.
Fitted with the amazing Evertune® bridge, the Traxe Solo only needs to be tuned when you change the strings! With A 24 inch scale maple neck with a 20 fret maple fingerboard, this guitar is comfortable and easy to play and a zero fret makes intonation easy.
Their acoustic models mix old fashioned craftsmanship and innovative materials to bring you the most flexible and durable instrument for any environment, without sacrificing tone or play-ability.
Models include the Snapaxe A, Snapaka, Traxe and Mini Traxe.
Their most popular model to date. It offers a perfect balance between traditional playability and compact convenience via the patented neck pivot design.
The Traxe feels and plays like a conventional guitar, with a 24 inch scale, 20 fret Maple fingerboard and 44mm nut width, but folds down to a size suitable for cabin storage and airline travel. The undersaddle piezo pickup gives you a full bodied acoustic tone and an additional passive volume control can be used to give you extra control.
The Snap Dragon E-Bass is unmatched in the travel guitar world.
Not only is it a compact bass that can be taken as carry on luggage on any airline. It has a neck design which gives you all the feel and pliability of your full sized bass, in a short scale package.
