Voyage-Air and Fender team up to produce go-anywhere acoustic models for players on the move.

Scottsdale, AZ (October 23, 2013) -- Fender is proud to announce two guitars set to become a traveler’s dream, the CD-140S VA and the CD-60 VA. These guitars, which have been seen on ABC’s Shark Tank hit television show, will go anywhere thanks to their revolutionary Voyage-Air patented hinged neck design, allowing players to fold the guitar in half and store it in its specially designed gig bag for incredibly convenient transport.

A finely appointed and rich-sounding instrument, the CD-140S VA has a solid spruce top with quartersawn standard “X” bracing, mahogany back and sides and mahogany neck. Other features include an elegant tortoiseshell pickguard and mother-of-pearl rosette, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with 3mm dot inlays, rosewood bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle and white with black-dot bridge pins. Special gig bag included.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
