  • 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.

  • Great Little Guitar

    As reviewed by pj on 6/12/2010

    I have had my Traveller Escape for just over 3 years and have mostly used it for a practice guitar. It is perfect to just sit on the couch and play; it is very comfortable and I not disturb anybody else in the family. I have probably played thousands of hours on this gutar sitting very comfortably. The headphone jack is also a great feature, you just might want to use your own headphones, theirs anre worthless. I did have problems after several years with the jack giving me buzz and cutting in and out. It is a wierd jack and can only be replaced with one of theirs. I still gave this guitar a 5, though, because when I took it back to the factory they fixed it up, no charge, and even put a new neck on the guitar because some of my frets were lifting and they did not like the way they were. I didn't even ask them to do that. Great customer support! Overall I love my Escape!

  • 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.
