Escape Classical

A full-scale classical guitar you can play anywhere

The Escape Classical is a full 25 ½"-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 ¼” output lets you to 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 include an alder body and a bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood 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.
