AIRFRAME / Electric travelling guitar


AIRFRAME is a concept that tackles the problem of transporting full-sized electrical guitars and the occurring travel damages by using a modular product structure to allow a distinct reduction in size when travelling. The flexible electric guitar system also works as a full-sized guitar (without accepting compromises in sound quality and playability) and features an adjustable and detachable rubber bar (frame) that can easily be stored behind the instrument for transportation purposes. The integrated screwdriver heads can be used for maintenance and make for a toolless, self-positioning assembly principle as well as simplified handling.
