Guitar making pioneers ESP and Traveler Guitar have formed an unprecedented partnership in order to bring you The Traveler Guitar LTD EC-1, a full 24 ¾-inch scale electric travel guitar based on LTD’s best-selling EC series. With slick, LTD-inspired appointments and Traveler Guitar’s innovative engineering, this guitar is the perfect travel companion for ESP players.
The ESP-designed ALH-200B active humbucker provides powerful drive and articulate tone, while the visual appointments offer tons of vibe. The Traveler Guitar LTD EC-1 has a carved arch-top Mahogany body, locking tuning machines, black anodized hardware, a beveled neck/ heel for easy access to high frets, an adjustable tune-o-matic style bridge, 6-ply binding, a bound neck, and LTD-style fingerboard inlays.
Traveler’s proprietary In-Body Tuning System uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body, eliminating the need for a headstock. As a result, you’ll have the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to on an instrument that’s 24% shorter and 29% percent lighter than a comparable full-sized guitar.
The Traveler Guitar V2 headphone amplifier is built in, allowing you to shred at full volume without waking the neighbors. Cycle through clean, boost, overdrive and distortion tones using the custom tap-pot and listen through headphones or plug into your favorite amp. The guitar is also equipped with an aux-in so you can connect your mobile device and play along with your favorite tracks.
The Traveler Guitar LTD EC-1 is the perfect solution for traveling players looking for a modern, high-gain guitar that’s compact and comfortable. Fits easily in airline overhead compartments in the included Deluxe Gig Bag.

Comments about Traveler Guitar EC-1 Limited Edition Travel Electric Guitar:
I have owned several high end guitars and have been playing for 30 years. I wanted a guitar that was light and compact and this was a new release and have owned it now for about a month. I love it!! I play it so much more than my other guitars because its so convenient, light and plays and sounds great. The pick up has a nice bite to it and through my effects its sounds awesome. The tone control knob has a built in push button switch to activate the different modes clean, boost, overdrive and distortion. I like the boost. The distortion that's built in is so so, but plug it into your regular set up and crank it, it sounds really good and I can get any sound out of it I want from ZZTop (great pick Harmonics) to Metal to sweet cleans. The on board amp allows you to plug in your smart phone and head phones and jam all night long. When I travel I bring a small multi effects and plug into that so I can add reverb and delay and customize my distortion. The feel of this guitar is really good for its size and appearance. It does slip slightly out of tune now and then but I have not had it set up yet and feel that will correct that, if not no big deal it. I have played this with a full band and it sounded great as well. As a side note, its really easy on your back especially after playing a Les Paul for an hour or two. All in all I think its worth every penny and its funny because I'm playing better because I play more having it, nice side benefit !!
