  • Fantastic instrument

    As reviewed by Bob on 6/11/2009

    Since I am unable to play traditional guitars do to shoulder problems, the Escape is life renewed!The neck rivals any acoustic-electric neck that I have played, and the headphone feature makes this instrument just plain fun. I play the Escape through a Boss AD-8 pedal to a standard electric amp when playing out, and the setup sounds great. I had the opportunity to contact the factory on a question, and found customer service to be very responsive and helpful. The only thing I would change on the guitar as delivered are the strings (I never liked D'Addario anyway). I use Elixer Phosphor Bronze extra light (.010 - .047) acoustic strings.

  • Very portable, but a little hard to to tune

    As reviewed by Ron L. on 1/9/2007

    This little instrument does the trick for portability. Well contstructed, it does anything a full size guitar does besides take up space. I can see it fitting nicely in an overhead, or a suitcase, or a backpack. Its amplified acousticness is rich, but the supplied headphones are cheesy and distort at full volume. My biggest complaint is in the tuning functionality. Recessed into the body are excellent closed gear tuners, but the routed area does not allow one to touch the tuners as we normally would. It takes a bit of practice. A little overpriced, but a fab guitar and a neat companion.

  • Little Guitar, BIG Sound....

    As reviewed by Tele-Caster on 2/28/2007

    I play a Traveler Escape in live performance. Set-up on mine was perfect. Intonation is spot-on. The tuning stability is excellent. The solid body means no feedback issues, even in bad rooms with lousy P.A. gear. Sound quality was exactly what I was looking for, and the slight increase in sustain over hollow-bodies suits my penchant for melodic lead breaks well. The only downside I've found is that changing strings is a chore. Otherwise, I love my "Redneck Steinberger" and am very happy with it. I plan on buying the bass next.
