The Tour Bus

the luthier travel guitar

The Tour Bus is a nomadic guitar designed to be easily transportable in folded position and to find in unfolded position the ergonomics and sound of a good luthier guitar.

Ses caractéristiques

COMPACT HEAD

The head is equipped with 6 staggered tuners that allow easy access to tuning and changing of strings while contributing to the compactness of the instrument and the good balance of the guitar.

PLAYING COMFORT

The body is composed of two elements that unfold to find the support points of the arm and the leg and guarantee the same sensations of sitting play as with a more traditional electric guitar. The two straps allow to play standing with a balanced guitar.

SOUND

The choice of wood, pickups, fittings and the method of manufacture gives it a very good sound.

EASY CARRYING

The two removable elements fold quickly and once the guitar is stored in its cover, with its 2 kg it will accompany you everywhere.

Les deux gammes

Since its debut in 2012, the Tour Bus has undergone several evolutions as it meets musicians, vendors and fellow luthiers. Two ranges naturally emerged:

  • La Tour Bus ‘Caster;
    I was inspired by the Telecaster principle of Leo Fender, who chose all the solutions to make an accessible model simple and effective. It is a model that I manufacture in mini-series, that I always try to have in stock and whose price is optimized without sacrificing the sound and the quality.
  • La Tour Bus Custom; these are totally custom made models made in a unitary way and on order.
