Journey OB660 Carbon Fiber Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar w/ Detachable Neck
Availability: In Stock
The Journey OB660 Overhead acoustic-electric bass guitar uses a patented collapsible neck system which allows for assembly/disassembly in a matter of seconds. After packing in its travel backpack the OB660 can be carried on to most major airlines, easily fitting in the overhead bin compartment.
Played unplugged, the Overhead bass has a surprisingly loud and balanced voice. Even the low “E” sings with authority and focus. The compact body size is able to carry a full sound through the use of a Manzer Wedge. The Manzer Wedge increases the body's air volume while keeping the top of the guitar close to the body for comfort. The inclusion of forearm and belly bevels add to the comfort and access to the upper frets is easy with Journey's Scoopaway body style.
So, whether you are a frequent “fly date” professional, or busker on the move, the hassle of traveling with a great sounding bass guitar on an airplane is completely eliminated. Imagine...No more anxiety about checking-in, arguing about what qualifies as “carry-on”, extra luggage costs, or lost and damaged checked instruments.
The electronics are delightfully simple and effective. Rather than a piezo beneath the saddle, the OB660 uses a pair of transducers mounted under the bridge. The result is far less “quack” and a rounder, more realistic tone. And since it is a passive system, there's no need to change batteries.
Journey carbon fiber Overhead instruments are now the choice of many who play an acoustic instrument & travel. Due to their incredible strength, resistance to heat, humidity and barometric pressure, these are as close to “bullet proof” as you can get!
The included TSA-approved travel case safely encloses the bass guitar within 22″ x 14″ x 9″ backpack. It features ergonomically designed pockets for laptops, tablet computers, pedals, cables, and other “stuff”. Practically everything you'll need for your next out-of-town live performance will fit within the overhead bin requirements.
