Carbon Fiber Acoustic Electric Guitars | KLOS Guitars

$302,736

The KLŌS guitar is sleek, gorgeous and striking. The carbon fiber design gives it a sophisticated, modern look while delivering amazing acoustics.

  

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

   

 

 Travel guitars are naturally more susceptible to be damaged, because naturally they travel. We protect the sound-producing body by making it out of carbon fiber, protecting it from dents and cracks as well as the elements like temperature and humidity. We make the neck out of high quality mahogany and rosewood so that the guitar has the familiar feel of a wooden guitar. You get your wooden feel, with the durability of carbon fiber.

This guitar is incredibly multifunctional. It's perfect for travelers, ranging from college students, hikers, to business men. Children and beginners also will find the guitar incredibly comfortable to learn on because of its compact size. Moreover you don't compromise the quality of the sound by buying a slightly smaller than parlor size guitar (see our customer reviews and demos below). Just like beginners can become experts, and children become travelers with age, the KLOS guitar serves as a sturdy companion in each case.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a pickup installed, the KLOS guitar is now plugged into a whole new world of opportunities. Live performance, professional recording, various effects such as looping and much much more is now possible. 

                    

Unplugged, the KLOS guitar is still the ultimate versatile guitar, ideal for traveling in not just your everyday settings like a neighbor's living room, but in more hazardous environments such as when camping or in a room full of young kids.

 

 

 

Fishman pickups are among the best in the industry, and after testing many different pickups, we've decided to partner with them on our acoustic-electric model. You can read more about the type of pickup we'll install here

 

 

 We protect the body, the sound producing part of the guitar, by making it out of carbon fiber. We make the neck from mahogany wood, giving it a familiar feel and keeping it affordable.

Carbon fiber is an infusion of the most durable fibers and the strongest resin. It is commonly seen in aerospace, automotive, and sporting goods engineering.

     

 

 

  

 

The guitar comes with standard action, between medium and low, with high precision leveled frets and high precision filed nut and saddle. Action can be customized with the Deluxe reward (see reward for more details).
