Rider Nylon guitar for guitar pickin', classically-trained hoboes

The Blackbird Rider Nylon is a completely travel-proof guitar with a hollow neck and a sound port at the head, creating a big guitar sound in a carbon fiber body. It weighs a mere 3 bounds and is a full guitar – not one of those odd wooden travel guitars. Interestingly, the guitar has the string spacing of a standard nylon string guitar which means you can do all the same flamenco picking tricks you’re used to but the durability and thin soundboard ensures it sounds great wherever you are. It costs $1,899.

Rider also has a $1,599 steel-string model for more traditional lovers, sinner, and/or pickers and grinners.
