Guitare Classique – Magazine (June 2020)
To perform a concert, a rehearsal, practice your scales on the train or simply play on the beach, this instrument is – to my knowledge – what comes closest to a real guitar. High-end materials, ergonomic design, impeccable finishes, versatility. All of this designed and produced by Yorgos Bechlivanoglou, a high-level concert performer who had the passion and inventiveness to make an instrument that ultimately meets the needs of the guitarist, professional and amateur. Hats off !

A real travel classical guitar! Portable and functional! An idea I always wished to see come true! THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED ABOUT!!! And for a standard classical guitar! And I found it outstanding for the physics applied, the foldable minimalist conception and everything else! Marvellous ideas and conception! Congratulations!!

My guitar is finally arrived today! Thank you so much, I really enjoy to play on it. I would like to say thank you for all your help!

The Moov is fab and didn’t take me too long to assemble. Sounds good too!!! I’ve only put it through a Yamaha THR amp on the acoustic setting and sounds good!

Dear Yorgos, I had the extreme pleasure to receive the guitar yesterday evening: just in time for my birthday ! It is in perfect shape and what a beauty it is ! I am deeply happy. I had no problem whatsoever to put it together : I found its building is a work of genius ! I couldn’t believe how small the package is and, either with headphones, my Yamaha THR and the JBL speakers : what a sound ! I am very happy and I feel very lucky to have one of your creations. Bravo and thank you again, Yorgos, with all my heart. Your guitar is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever had!

I would like to order one more Moov. I just love this guitar!
Great work, maestro!
I like very much the playability, especially the string height – I ‘m already thinking about lowering the strings on my Hanika, which seem to be set absurdly high in comparison.
Yorgos, a big thanks for crafting such a beautiful instrument for me!

My MOOV Travel Guitar arrived yesterday and I have been experimenting already!
It is just sooo nice to play. The fretboard and neck is exactly what I like. I do not need my footstool with this guitar, and that feels very comfortable.
Today I started to experiment with LogicPro. The guitar plugs straight into my Apogee interface and I found a very good sound in a few minutes. I will record something and send it to you. I also plan recordings for Youtube.
It is a very intelligent and solid construction. I do not think I will fold it up very often, but it is nice for travelling light.
Thanks Yorgos. Really great!

I was playing throughout the weekend and I am amazed. It exceeded my expectations! 😊
As soon as I hit the road I will let you know…😉

I wanted to let you know I received the instrument a few days ago and I love it. I played it for 12 hours in the first two days and it does exactly what I wanted. It allows me to practice as much as I want without disturbing anyone else. It is well-made and plays much like my full sized 8-string classicals, perfect as a practice guitar and for whenever I travel.
Thank you so much for your work on this, it’s worth every penny I paid.
Richard Hobbs (Australia)
I just wanted to let you know that the guitar arrived today. Man, it is such a nice instrument! The whole system is so clever, and it sounds great!
Many thanks again.

Already 2 weeks with the Moov Guitar! It’s an excellent guitar, with a very playable neck. I use it with amps or headphones. And with the Boss Waza Air, its great! From jazz to rock, or folk to metal, this guitar can do it all! I found the right settings for me, sounds and ergonomics. This Guitar will follow me on my business trips. I’m likely to order a classic later.

Having already played a lot with my new MOOV, I am in a position to share my review as a guideline for guitarists thinking to acquire one. Personally, I was never a fan of mobile guitars or never had the need for one. My sole need is to improve the sound of the amplified classical guitar, or at least this was my understanding before ordering one. However, after experimenting with the instrument, I feel that Moov Guitars reinvented the instrument, surpassing the difficulties of guitar transportation, but most importantly achieving an impeccable sound with no feedback involved. It feels like carrying a laptop bag, with the confidence that at any point you can play a professional concert, play to friends or practice with headphones. The playability is great, especially when it is held in the “classical” stance – I would say it even improves posture and reduces fatigue as an aftermath of a long practice. Personally, I can’t imagine myself without the MOOV and I am confident that with this instrument, the sound of the classical guitar will be distinct in the mix with other instruments. Lastly, it’s the first time I received so many compliments and admiration for a guitar from non-musicians, which was strange to me!
My congrats to the whole team of MOOV Guitars!

I received my new MOOV guitar on Monday (May 23). I LOVE – LOVE – LOVE the guitar! It’s really an incredible work of engineering and art and a true joy to play. I showed my guitar teacher and she was blown away by it, as will be everybody else I share it with. Thank you for creating this truly beautiful instrument and making it available for others like myself to be able to own and enjoy.
Thank you for everything – it’s been a pleasure doing business with you. All the best to you!

It arrived just in time, five minutes before I had to leave for a soccer tournament with my son! I’ve been playing it every chance I get. I can’t believe how wonderful it is, so beautifully made, so stable and comfortable, and even the wonderfully designed carrying case! I can’t get enough of this guitar. I find myself playing it at home, even with my wonderful Byers and Ruck guitars at hand, because I hear more details in how to improve my playing, like left hand noise I need to reduce and strings I need to mute. I’ve been waiting for half a year, and the wait was absolutely worth it!
Thank you so much!”
