Overview

The Escape Classical is a full 25-1/2"-scale nylon string acoustic-electric travel guitar with a headphone amp built in. The proprietary In-Body Tuning System uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body, eliminating the need for a headstock. As a result, you’ll have the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to on an instrument that’s 25% shorter than a typical full-size classical. The body is also 46% thinner than a typical classical guitar, allowing this guitar to be super compact.

When you need to privately practice, the built-in Shadow headphone amplifier will give you a crisp, clean signal through headphones without needing any extra gear. An under-the-saddle piezo pickup senses the vibrations of the strings and body for an acoustic style sound without needing a resonant body. The standard 1/4” output lets you plug directly into a mixing board, headphones or your favorite amp. With the 1/8” auxiliary in, you can play along with tracks from your mobile device.

Features on the Escape Classical guitar includes an alder body and a bolt-on maple neck with a black walnut fingerboard. It has standard tuning machines and uses standard nylon guitar strings, measures only 29-1/2" in length, and is ready to play right out of the gig bag. A perfect solution for traveling classical players unwilling to compromise on scale length, and looking for a compact yet comfortable guitar. The Escape Classical fits easily in airline overhead compartments in the included deluxe gig bag.

Features

  • Built-in headphone amp with aux-in for jamming along to backing tracks
