If you’re in the market for a unique, fully-featured, handmade electric travel guitar, you might want to check out Scott French’s new SF3 Travel and its accompanying custom-fit travel/gig bag by Cocaine Mule.
Scott French is a Northern California guitar maker––local to my area––so I’m hoping to get one of these in for review, but in the mean time I thought it would be fun to take a quick look at what this diminutive instrument has to offer.
The Scott French SF3 Travel features a truly light-weight design (guitar, bag & strap coming in at less than 10lbs,) a compact headless/slim body, Steinberger gearless tuners w/Wilkinson roller bridge, choice of woods, choice of scale length, fret size, neck carve, fingerboard radius, etc., dual Nordstrand NDC humbuckers, a two-way adjustable trussrod, and Schaller locking strap buttons.
Meanwhile, the custom-fit Travel Bag by Cocaine Mule features heavy canvas with reinforced lining, durable stitching, a padded handle, and modular strap system.
Full Packages (including SF3 Guitar & Bag) start at $2750, with additional cost for black or gold hardware, stainless steel fretwire, and other additions & customizations.
