Here are some frequently asked questions about our guitars. 

If you have any more questions, please contact us at:

Q: Can I take your guitar on a plane?

A: Yes! Snapdragon Guitars were designed with that exact purpose in mind. All of our guitars are within the specifications of airline carry on luggage, including Ryanair and Easyjet.

Q: What does the guitar come with?

A: All our guitars come with a gig bag specific to that model and a set of alen keys for adjustments. We don't include any documents with our guitars in order to save paper. Instruction PDFs can be sent on request. The E-Flite, E-Bass and Evertune models also come with an extra ECB bag included. 

Q: What strings do you use? Do I need special strings?

A: We use 11-52 Phosphor Bronze gauge strings for our Acoustic models and 11-49 Nickel strings for our Electric models. You don't need specialist strings for our guitars, you can use whatever brand or gauge you like. However, a light string gauge will result in tuning instability so we recommend you use 10 gauge and up. 

Q: Do I need an amplifier? Can I plug my headphones into the guitar?

A: All of our guitars come with pickups and can be used with conventional amplifiers. Our TraXe and AKA models have a natural acoustic output so do not require an amplifier, but come with pickups if extra volume is needed. You will need an amplifier with a headphone output or a dedicated headphone amplifier to use headphones with our guitars. 

Q: Will my guitar stay in tune?

A: Yes! Our pivot design means that once the guitar is in it's folded position, it will stay in tune just like a conventional guitar. You will need to tune the guitar every time you unfold it, however, once it's in place, it's ready to go. Our Evertune models once set up will hold their tune when folded. 

Q: Where can I try one? Do you have any dealers?

A: We only sell Snap Dragon guitars direct through our website. If you're in the UK you can come and try one at our workshop in Ongar, Essex. Please contact us at to book an appointment. If you're unable to do that. We have a 14 day trial period on all our guitars. If you're not happy with your order for any reason, please contact us and we'll arrange for a return and refund.

Q: What happens if something goes wrong?

A: All our guitars come with a warranty which can be found on our terms and conditions page. If you ever have any issues with your guitar, please contact and we'll be happy to help.

Q: Do I have to pay tax on this?

A: VAT (20%) is included in the price of our guitars. This applies to all orders inside the UK and the E.U. Any order placed outside of this area will automatically have this amount removed from their order total. Import duties, taxes, and brokerage fees are not included in the product price or shipping and handling cost and will be collected upon delivery from the carriers or local authority. These charges are the recipients responsibility and we are unable to specify the amount in question. You may check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be.
