The Alpaca guitar is the go-anywhere traveller’s guitar. Made with carbon-fibre to make it water proof and basically indestructible, it is the ultimate campfire guitar so you can leave your trusty semi-acoustic at home – out of harm’s way.
The Alpaca guitar is one of the most unique designs for a guitar we’ve seen for quite some time. The main difference you’ll notice is the absence of the tuning head. The reason for this is that the tuning head was identified as the weakest part of the guitar so they decided to flip it and put the tuning keys at the base of the guitar, making it much less fragile and ready for the outdoors.
The whole idea of the Alpaca is it’s a ‘go anywhere’ guitar that’s fully waterproof. This is a great idea but we doubt the strings will stand up to the elements if you’re continually going in and out of water with it, so don’t go too crazy.
Each Alpaca guitar is made to order, meaning you can expect to wait a few months from when you place your order to when it actually arrives, so keep this in mind if you’re planning on gifting it to someone.
