  • Description

    The Mini Dreadnought is designed for anyone who enjoys a Dreadnought style guitar but might want it in a slightly more "easy to handle," portable size. The slightly smaller (15/16 size) body size makes it light and comfortable to hold, and the 25.5" scale length makes it easy to play even the most complex chords on its full-size neck. Made from the toughest engineered tonewoods, this guitar is rugged and durable, yet gives up nothing to the legendary Dreadnought sound. The price includes the all new Transit Bag carry case that is slim, lightweight, tough and features a zippered laptop/accessory pocket for all your musical needs. Discover the amazing sound of a mini-Dreadnought guitar at an incredibly affordable price.

    Now everyone can afford to take along a great sounding, easy playing guitar wherever they might go. You can determine where to PICK WHERE YOU PLAY.

    Great guitar and for air travel too. I have the VAMD-02NS Transit purchased to travel to Jackson Hole WY. Played it at the Hootenanny in Moose WY while on vacation. Guitar traveled well on an air bus as well as a regular passenger airline.
    Just recently had the action lowered on the guitar and with lighter gauge strings (11's). My guitar tech was extremely impressed with the hinge and construction. I love it even more. The guitar sounds great to me.
    A very good value for what you get.

    I didn't realize it came with such a nice backpack that is well designed and has a secret pocket against the back which is a LAPTOP CASE!!! It sounds AMAZING!!!!  My new favorite guitar!

    Bought this to take along to the Beach. Takes up half the room of a Little Martin and Sounds MUCH better. I am very proud of this product, does what it says and then some. The overall feeling about this guitar is I like it. It’s well built, easy to carry in and on the planes I’ve been on.  I love this so much that I’m looking into getting a soft gig bag so when I move it from home to work I don’t have to break it down. I want to play it! Anyway highly enjoy playing this guitar; I’m glad I have to travel with when I’m out of town, and to practice at work.

    I bought a VAMD-02 a few months ago. Like I say about it, it is a GREAT guitar that happens to fold up! That’s it! It is a GREAT sounding guitar. The action is great, the strings hold up just like they would on a regular guitar. I carry mine with me everywhere I go when I travel. Whether I fly or drive. It is just so convenient to put all the capos, picks, even a laptop in the backpack style carry case. The neck is just like it was when I bought it. You won’t regret buying one. It REALLY fits a need!

    I bought the lower end model acoustic, The VAMD-02 and so far it’s been great. Quality build, Quality parts, great gigbag backpack. And it definitely gets a double take when people see you set it up or take it down. Mine has a capture nut with a zero fret, stays in tune or very close to it each time. It’s been in the 90s here for a temp and humid. I'll be keeping this. It should fit in the Jeep just fine! On another note, my playing seems set off a chorus of coyotes for background singers...... tough crowd.

    But first, I’d say this. Due to the low cost, these VA-MD02 models are a blessing because you have a full sounding and EASY playing guitar that you don't have a bundle invested in and you just don't have to worry about it. It gets a ding-so what; you have a story to tell, etc. VA's rock man!

    - John, Evanston IL


    To be honest this hinged innovative design was the main selling point to me.  I can't believe nobody thought of this before but maybe they thought like I did.  I thought it probably won't stay in tune but I was wrong.  I'm amazed every time I pull it out of the case and open it up because it’s perfectly tuned.

Owner Testimonials

  • This is a beautiful sounding instrument. It has a distinct sound of its own and that in and of itself is extremely attractive. The finish and construction of the instrument is of a high standard. 

    Gerry G - VAD-04LH with a LR BAGGS Element VTC pickup

  • I have been a pro guitar tech for over 40 years now. I have a vaom-04 in my personal arsenal that I’ve had about 4 years. I absolutely love it. It’s been on several airlines in the overhead and on many trips by car. The gig bag is great too as it holds all the 04’s gear (soundhole pup, tuner, strings, picks, etc.) And also clothes and some suitcase items for an overnight. It’s like a piece of luggage that happens to have a guitar in it as well. Very cool! 

    Dean - VAOM-04

  • The action is the same as my Taylor 514 CE, so my practice is undisturbed on the road. The sound is also very good for the price. I think I have one of your less expensive models, but it sounds quite good. Thanks for making such a great guitar. 

    Jim N. - VAOM-02

  • I am extremely happy with the guitar. I can’t believe how good it sounds and its overall playability. The pick up you installed  is incredible . Amplified it sounds way better than my Takamine which was considerably more expensive.

    Phil C. - VAD-04 w/ Stage Pro Anthem

  • Unzip the case, unfold his Voyage-Air guitar, lock the neck in place...and then play the guitar without even retuning -- all in the matter of about two minutes! The guitar played in nearly perfect tuning and the tone was stunning. In that instant I was hooked. The timing of my discovery of the Voyage-Air guitar could not have been better. 

    Karl D. - VAOM-04LH

  • My first impressions are this is an excellent instrument, even compared to my Martin, with a good tone across the range. I have capo’d to the 7th fret and found the tuning remains accurate. I am amazed at how light it is, which will be a bonus when taking on plane trips.
