The KLOS acoustic and acoustic electric travel size guitars are durable, lightweight, and sound great for their size. We combine a full scale-length detachable neck and a small, portable body to give you a compact guitar that plays unlike any travel guitar you've ever held. 

 

 


Our hybrid series guitars feature a detachable mahogany neck with carbon stiffening rods and a fully composite fretboard. The stiffening rods help fight the tendency of wooden necks to warp and twist over time when exposed to changes in temperature and humidity. This ensures that your KLOS guitar will have perfect action and easy playability for a long, long time. 

 

Acoustic and Acoustic Electric include:

  • Your KLOS Hybrid guitar
  • Screwdriver for removing the neck
  • Hex wrench to adjust the truss rod
  • KLOS Gig Bag ($95 value!)
  • KLOS Neck Sleeve ($20 value!)

The Deluxe package includes:

  • Your KLOS Hybrid guitar
  • Screwdriver for removing the neck
  • Hex wrench to adjust the truss rod
  • Fishman Sonitone pickup 
  • Upgraded Graph Tech TUSQ nut and saddle 
  • Upgraded Graph Tech Ratio Tuned Machine Heads 
  • KLOS Essentials Accessory kit includes rain cover, guitar strap, and capo ($86 value!)

Played by KLŌS Instruments

Beautifully resonant tone and incredible playability

STAY OUT

Never leave your instrument behind

KLŌS Guitars aren't meant to be coddles. With a durable bi-lateral carbon fiber body, they're designed to stay with you wherever you go. So, go.

Discover Carbon Fiber

Test

Carbon fiber is significantly more durable than wood, and more resilient to dents, cracking and the elements. While a carbon fiber guitar is still an instrument that deserves respect and love, at KLŌS we believe that it should be treated more like a piece of gear that is never left behind.

While most high-end guitars need to be kept in a case with a humidifier and babied, this guitar was designed to stay out of the case, ready to play at all times. KLŌS Acoustic guitars are durable, with temperature and humidity having no effect on carbon fiber. Our mission is to make guitars that are never left behind. Now with a KLŌS, you can take your guitar with you and have the peace of mind that it’s durable and reliable.

METICULOUS PRECISION
Amazing Playability

Achieving the perfect playability is an art, and that’s what makes a guitar easy to play. The nut, frets, truss rod, and bridge, all have an influence on the string playability, getting them all to work together perfectly is what makes a guitar feel like home. Here at KLŌS we take playability very seriously, that’s why we put a lot of attention into leveling the frets, filing the nuts, and adjusting the saddles. Each guitar then gets played up and down the neck by our inspectors to confirm it’s worthy to have a KLOS logo and go out the door. 

Stunning sound

Incredible action and perfect playability compose a beautiful sound. Hear the KLŌS difference for yourself./p>

  • Angled Headstock


    A compact and minimalistic headstock. Featuring a 3+3 tuner pattern that still has the same spacing as a 6 in a row, making tuning your strings just as comfortable, yet feel lighter. The tuners are the heaviest part of the neck, so keeping the weight of the tuners down, and having a lightweight carbon neck will make guitar playing for hours even more enjoyable.

    The headstock break angle is 11 degrees, making it the optimal angle to have the perfect string force on the nut. This lowers the friction of the string on the nut, which lowers the chances of your strings going out of tune on their own, and makes tuning your strings more precise. When you look at the neck from a front view, you will also see that the strings go in almost a straight line, which also lowers the friction on the nut, which also helps create optimal tuning.

  • Detachable Neck


    The bolt-on neck is one of the game-changing features of our guitars. It’s perfect for those moments when you need to put it in a suitcase or you are in a crunch for space. Since guitars in general are very portable, making them durable and easy to travel with is naturally the best solution. All our guitars have the detachable neck function.

    The Hybrid wood necks have four metal threaded inserts that are permanently installed, in which the four bolts go into, allowing you to take the neck on and off an unlimited amount of times.

    Bolt on Acoustic guitars are not very common because they are difficult to design out of wood, but with the KLOS patented injection molded neck block, we were able to achieve incredible results and have all the benefits of a detachable neck on an acoustic guitar.

  • Neck Design


    A guitar neck is long and thin, which is why it is even more important that it is stronger, lighter and more reliable than any other wood neck.

    The hybrid neck features a steel truss rod with two carbon fiber stiffening rods embedded in the neck. While a wooden neck is not going to be as durable or resilent as a carbon fiber neck, you'll still get more longevity with a KLOS neck than most wooden necks on the market.

FOR JOURNEYS LARGE AND SMALL
KLŌS Convert gig bag

The patented KLŌS Convert Gig Bag has the unique feature of having 2 modes of operation. It works as a standard gig bag when the guitar is fully assembled, and also when the neck is detached, unbolted and collapsed. That’s right, the same bag works for when the guitar is folded and when it’s fully assembled. When the neck is detached, the neck goes in the neck sleeve, on the side of the folded gig bag.

The gig bag materials are made from the same stuff that camping backpacks are made out of, making it durable and reliable. With the guitar itself being very durable, a traditional hard case is not as necessary for most day to day use, making this soft case gig bag the perfect choice for the KLŌS guitar.

RESONANT TONE
Do I want a Travel or Full Size?

Our KLŌS Acoustic Full Size guitar sounds like a great quality wood guitar, and the KLŌS Travel Size guitar sounds great but with a smaller sound. If you really want a great tone, we recommend you buy the full size guitar, if you want a small guitar for travel, but still a surprisingly loud sound, then you should get the travel guitar.
