By Antony Williams on March 4, 2010
I purchased this Voyage-Air VAOM-2C primarily for travel purposes, but quickly discovered that it was too great an instrument to be used only for that! I have many guitars (too many!) and mainly use a Taylor 910 CE-L7 (Brazillian Rosewood), Taylor 810 Ltd and a Martin D7. These 3 guitars will be available on e-Bay soon, as this sweet Voyage-Air VAOM-2C has completley taken their places!
I added a K&K transducer pickup, switched out the tuners with drop in replacement Grover auto locking tuners and had the set up tweaked at my favorite luthier.
Now this guitar is such a delight to play and the sound and tone just outstanding.
Even without the amazing folding neck system designed for easy travel, I would rate this guitar up there with the top line Taylors, Martins and Larrivees.
The negatives are the finish is not as great as a Taylor or Martin - however it is made from fine tonewoods, though in China, but to the inventor & master luthier Harvey Leach's specifications. And at a fraction of his custom made guitar prices.
Check out the reviews on line for this guitar - you will be pleasantly surprised. Customer support (if needed) is local California and very friendly.
And Amazon have got some great deals going.

The reason for buying a guitar like this is to have a high quality, "road warrior" instrument. As long as the instrument isn't subjected to "normal" travel conditions, it will survive and out perform 3/4 size guitars (such as Baby Taylors and Little Martins). However, the transit case that comes with the instrument DOES NOT stand up to protecting the instrument against those surrounding travelers that will inevitably throw their luggage in the overhead bin on top of your prize posession. This is particularly true with the grain structure of the neck and the hinge points. When I contacted Voyage Air to tell them about where the neck snapped along the grain at the hinge point, they stated they would charge me $600 to make the repair - though it really appears to me to be more of a design flaw (in the case AND the neck design).

On the up side, when it works, it works well and sports rich tone and good playability. The instrument itself has a nice rosette and bindings, and doesn't have the nasal sound of instruments built from composite materials.

Additionally, the VOAM-2C, a guitar touted to be in their premiere line, does not include any electronics. I ended up buying a Fishman in-hole pickup to get me past this challenge, but again - Voyage Air should have an option to include something like a LR Baggs M-80 (or equivelent) pickup. So, unless you're mic'd abiently or put in a pickup system you've got a guitar that is not gig-ready.

Voyage Air really needs to work these design flaws out and stand behind their products when we spend the amount of money they're demanding for this product.

I wish I can rate this higher, but in all conscience I cannot. Here are my reasons:

The shipment arrived with no packing slip and in a large box with loosely and randomly stuffed packing papers. The box was not the original one from Voyage-Air as it had no manufacturer's logo. Without the packing slip, I can only guess that it might have been a returned item mistakenly shipped out as an delivery item, as the two keys for the truss rod and the detachable protective back of the carry bag were all missing. In addition, the edge of the pick guard was unevenly chamfered.

I have a replacement shipped to me in two days after an online chat with Amazon Customer Service representative, and that was quick.

My suggestion to Voyage-Air is that you owe it to your customers to at least include a pickup for the OM-C as this model to start with, has a much smaller sound box than VAD Models, and, with a cut out, it reduces the high frequency resonation and volume almost by half comparing to the OMs models. Another suggestion is to put some better tuners as the quality of locking mechanism is highly questionable and substandard comparing to other brands of equal values. With the guitar being kept unfolded for three days, I have to tune them daily. The knob turns loosely and seems to bounce back when turning, making tuning an extremely painful exercise.
