The Escape Mark III is a full-scale acoustic/electric travel guitar with advanced features for the discriminating player on-the-go. The Escape Mark III is a full 25-1/2"-scale acoustic/electric travel guitar with a headphone amp built in. The 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 26% shorter and 47% thinner than a typical, full-sized acoustic.

The built-in Shadow headphone amplifier produces a crisp, clean signal through headphones for private practice sessions. A Shadow Nanoflex pickup under the saddle senses the vibrations of the strings and body for an acoustic-style sound without the bulk of a resonant body. The control plate includes volume, treble and bass controls, a built-in chromatic tuner as well as a headphone output and aux-in for jamming along with your favorite tracks. A standard ¼" output jack allows you to plug into your favorite amp.

Features include a mahogany body with cutaway for high fret access, and a bolt-on mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard. It has standard tuning machines and uses standard acoustic strings, measures only 29-1/2" long, and is ready to play right out of the gig bag. The Escape Mark III is a perfect solution for traveling acoustic players unwilling to compromise on scale length, and looking for a compact yet comfortable guitar. Fits easily in airline overhead compartments in the included deluxe gig bag.

    Comments about Traveler Guitar MK3 MHG Escape Mark III Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have owned 2 other travel guitars this is much better
    It balances well in your lap no strap needed
    Was easy to tune
    Works great with an amp
    Don't expect it to sound like your quality Taylor guitar
    Do expect it to sound like a acoustic electric thru an amp
