About this project
A new and improved KLOS Guitars design featuring a lighter, stronger, and better sounding carbon fiber travel guitar.
KLOS guitar is sleek, gorgeous and striking. The carbon fiber design gives it a sophisticated, modern look while delivering amazing acoustics.
We protected 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.
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.
Designed and hand crafted in the USA
In May of 2015 we launched our 1st Kickstarter campaign. Our initial goal was to raise $15,000 but we quickly surpassed that and ended up raising nearly $34,000. Thanks to the 140 supporting Kickstarter backers, we were successfully funded and KLOS Guitars became a reality! We have taken your recommendations along with extensive research and design experimentation to come back with an even better guitar.
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 CUSTOM reward (see reward for more details).
Risks and challenges
There are certain factors that are outside of our complete control, such as supply chain. One potential risk is that a supplier could deliver a lower quality than expected material or deliver late. The KLOS Guitars team has experienced problems like this before with our first Kickstarter. We handled the situations well, and learned a great deal, making us more prepared than ever to fulfill this project. We have factored in potential delays and quality control into both our funding goal and our estimated delivery times. Having the experience of our first Kickstarter under our belt, we are fully prepared to handle both foreseeable and unexpected obstacles.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
