With its unique modern-retro look and detachable tear-drop arm support, the Speedster represents a design revolution in travel guitars. The Speedster is built for portability and performance with a high-output dual-rail humbucker pickup, 24 ¾” full-scale neck-through-body, and volume & tone controls. The Speedster fits neatly inside an included gig bag and is small enough to stow in airline overhead compartments.
In celebration of the Speedster’s 10th anniversary, we created the Speedster Camouflage, featuring a meticulously layered forest camo finish. Be sure to check it out.
