    Comments about Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod V2 Electric Travel Guitar:

    It goes with me on 10-13 day trips in a big truck. It hides well due to it's size, but most of all it sounds good and is easy to play. I am definitely not sorry I bought it.
    As an experienced long time player of Blues, Slide and Bluegrass tunes, with instruments like Guitars, Banjos and Harmonicas, I need to feel that I am playing a quality instrument and this Hotrod gives me that.

    Comments about Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod V2 Electric Travel Guitar:

    The Speedster is great for traveling and fun to play. Overall the quality seems to be good, but I've found the audio output jack to be annoying. Out of the 5 headphones I own, including the standard iPhone buds and a Beats Solo 3, only 1 consistently makes a solid connection (Bose). The other 4 will work, but they can't be pushed all the way into the jack. They have to be pulled out of the jack just a tad to make a connection, and it is easy to accidentally bump them all the way back in while playing and lose the connection.

    Comments about Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod V2 Electric Travel Guitar:

    The Speedster Hotrod V2 is just what I needed. This is a well built guitar with many features other travel guitars do not have. This will be a great guitar for my global travels and now I don't have to worry about putting a guitar in the luggage compartment; this one fits in the overhead bin or under the seat.

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod V2 Electric Travel Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar 8 months ago because my business travel was seriously cutting into my practice time. I purchased this to thinking it would be OK and that I least I could keep up with my scales and learning songs, but WOW, I completely underestimated this guitar. I was expecting some "guitar like" instrument. This thing feel like a real guitar and plays like real guitar. The neck and electronics are great and the built in amp allows for any type of music. It is very easy to travel with. I simply put in the overhead behind my carry on with no issues. Also, I wouldn't think of this only for travel. I plays perfectly well through my tube amp. Highly recommend.

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod V2 Electric Travel Guitar:

      I was looking for a guitar to take on vacations. Guitar Center had a special sale on this product so I bought it on-line. Although I was not too impressed with the demo guitars in the store, the one I had delivered exhibits impressive quality and is easy to play. You can tell the company put a lot of research into how the guitar feels in your hands. It is very fun to play and I find myself gravitating towards it whenever it is within reach. It fits in airline overhead bins easier than my wife's purse. The only issue I have had is that the G string goes out of tune if I play hard. The manufacturer had me lubricate the rollers but I don't think this solved the problem. Next I will try the replacement locking tuners they sell.
