Hover over the green pins and get to know the features of the Ascender
At the heart of the Ascender lies a true feat of engineering.
For traveling, a patented mechanism allows this professional grade guitar to be folded in half,
tucked into a protective Ciari gig bag that will fit into an average sized backpack or carry on.
Your guitar is now a TSA compliant carry-on that never leaves your side.
Elegant string management ensures the strings never flop around while folded. They “follow the fold” under light tension and rest in small notches in fretboard at the hinge, ready to fall back in line at a moments notice. A captive nut keeps them organized at the neck.
When you are ready to play, simply unfold the neck. An elegant lever-actuator is concealed
inside the lower bout of the guitar which, when pulled, re-tensions the strings leaving you with
full size, professional grade, 22 fret guitar, with plek perfect action, ready to rock.
This is a beautiful guitar; the audience will not know that this is a travel guitar!The Ascender features a shallow “c” neck profile, GraphTech Ratio locking tuners, ebony fingerboard, and comes equipped with Seymour Duncan ’59’ neck & bridge pickups for a versatile tone, with a bright attack.
