  • The instrument can be dismantled or reconnected in less than 20 seconds

Now you can easily take the band on tour, thanks to a fold-up guitar that doubles up as a suitcase. Packing up for a gig will be less of a hassle because of its compact design. You can now bring other much-needed guitar tools and accessories, like those you can find on https://musiccritic.com/equipment/guitars/best-locking-tuners.

Masterminded by Irish inventor Iain Maclean, the Notekase travel guitar features a removable back and neck, meaning it breaks down to a size suitable for cabin luggage.

The hollow body of the instrument can be used to pack clothing in and it comes with a padded travel bag to protect it during transit.

According to Maclean, his patented design can be dismantled or reconnected in less than 20 seconds.

He adds that the collapsible structure does not compromise the sound quality.

Currently the guitarist is promoting his musical invention via Kickstarter to raise the necessary funds needed to start production.

To date he has raised £2,406 out of a £26,545 goal.

A video showcasing the travelling guitar shows how it fits together with the back and neck fixed into place with a few screws.

Maclean notes that many airlines in Europe charge more than £50 for musical instruments that don’t fit the cabin baggage dimensions.

In a bid to beat the system, he went about designing his novel fold-up guitar.

He notes that the compact device is also perfect for other forms of travel, adding: ‘You will move around busy Underground stations and packed out buses and trains like a ninja musician.

‘No more nudging old ladies onto the railway tracks with your steel reinforced 20 kilo guitar coffin.’

So, if you’ve longed to take your guitar on tour without the hassle, maybe this invention will hit the right note.
