Rolly Brown compares his VAOM-04BK to a Martin OM-18

“I ordered my VAOM-04BLK in order to make flying easier, which it of course does. I needed a guitar that looked and sounded professional, and hoped that it’d be adequate. I was surprised at how warm, rich, and loud it sounded in comparison to my several handmade and vintage guitars; considering the price, it really hung in there. At a weeklong guitar camp, both students and my fellow instructors commented on the tone.
Now, back home, I often find myself picking up the Voyage-Air when it’s time to play or practice. I genuinely like it! It’s a first class instrument, and an incredible value for the money.”
-Rolly Brown, U.S. National Fingerpicking Champion

Comparison video on the folding-neck Voyage-Air travel guitar ($589 street price) and my beloved Martin OM-18 Authentic ($5200 street price). If you don’t know about the folding neck, look here:
In my video, I’m just concerned with the sound, which you can hear for yourself. The guitar arrived yesterday, with a mostly excellent setup (there might be one little buzz that needs some attention), and I’ll be flying with it next weekend for a camp in Colorado, certain that it will hold its own in the tone and playability departments! Eileen Niehouse and Steve Edmunds (and others who asked…), listen up!!
