Such is the case though, with Ciari Guitars' Ascender model. As it turns out, this particular guitar features a lever concealed within the body’s perimeter. When flipped, this lever drops the string tension from 118 pounds to three, at which point a mechanism allows the guitar to be folded perfectly in half.
Intrigued, we stopped by the company's booth to learn more about the guitar, which received a glowing review from our friends at Guitar Player.
See what we learned about the guitar - and a tasty demonstration of how it sounds at the end - in the video above. As always, be sure to also check out the full spectrum of our NAMM coverage as well.
