The Bear Cub is an archtop mini travel guitar with a 17 inch scale length. It was designed to be small, playable, and sound great.
When I designed the Bear Cub I decided to use a technology that is tried and true with smaller instruments; arched plates. I hand carve the spruce top and maple back just as I would a mandolin or a violin. This, combined with the oval sound hole, gives the guitar warmth, clarity and projection from a very small body. A travel guitar doesn't have to sound like a tin can or look like a hockey stick, and the Bear Cub proves it.
