Music is an integral part of camping. From the field of an Airstream rally to campsites in our National Forests, from off-the-grid boondocking on public land to the campground across town, music is as much a part of the experience as s'mores and stargazing. We've picked a few guitars around a campfire or two, and we haven't found a better travel guitar than the ones made by Journey Guitars in Austin, Texas.

Fully collapsible with a removable neck that tightens down easily, these guitars easily tuck into your Airstream's onboard storage, and assemble in the blink of an eye. You'll be strumming and picking along in no time on a collapsible guitar that performs better than many full-size acoustic guitars. Simply slot the detachable neck into the body of the guitar, tighten the bolt, and after a quick tune-up your Journey Guitar is ready to go. With a full, vibrant sound and an easy-to-play action, Journey Guitars are a step up in campfire jams.

Quite possibly the best-sounding travel guitar you'll ever play.

Airstream Supply Company is proud to offer two guitars from Journey Guitars. Both are incredible instruments and suitable for any playing style. Stylish and durable, the Black Matte Carbon Travel Guitar is a full-toned guitar that will hang with any full-sized guitar, while the Solid Sitka Spruce "Puddle Jumper" is a great entry-level camping guitar with a solid sitka top and layered African mahogany sides and back.
