Who is behind Maan-Guitars?
It is a one ma(a)n show. I’m 32 years old and graduated mechanical engineer, who discovered his passion for guitar building three years ago. It started as i wanted to play a couple of unhuman solos from Kirk Hammett. I had to invest every free minute in exercises. That's how the idea came out: a flexible electric guitar that I can take and play anywhere.
What is Travelect?
Travelect is a compact electric guitar with built-in amplifier and speaker. The guitar was designed to maximize the guitar playing time through the unbounded loctaion flexibility.
Why should I buy such a special electric guitar?
Why not. Travelect works like any other electric guitar with the addional luxury of an internal amplifier & speaker. Since you are no longer tied to one place. Living room, garden or park. You can now go heavy everywhere.
How much does a guitar of yours cost?
Depending on the wood and pickup selection, a guitar costs between 650-950€. A Personalized Travelect would cost 200€ in addition.
Why are your guitars so much cheaper than traditional handmade guitars?
By specializing in one body shape, all workflows are known and semi-automated. The building time is therefore shorter and as you know, time is money. Besides, I always wanted to own a handmade guitar and could never afford one. This should change for you.
What can i change in the configuration?
You can choose the woods and set different colors. Select other options and define your pickup combination. If you want other specific features such as a certain fretboard radius or other neck profil, I’m pretty flexible.
Do I have a return policy?
Yes. Of course you have 30 days right of return. You can easily send your guitar back in time. Provided the guitar is not personalized.

If you want to personalize your guitar, you can email me the symbol or icon you would like to immortalize on your guitar. I check the possibility and return to you with a 2D drawing.

How long does the construction phase take?
Mostly between 8-10 weeks.
Is there an option for international shipping?
