I saw someone at the airport with a carry on acoustic travel guitar that was pretty small, looked kind of like a standard guitar, and was kind of expensive. I was considering purchasing one, but then I saw this at Guitar Center online. Costs less, is smaller, is durable enough to check on inside a suitcase, and you don't have to worry about humidity because it is a solid hardwood body. No, it doesn't look traditional, but for my practice guitar I wasn't concerned about that. It's quiet when unamplified, but pleasant sounding. Someone compared it to an electric guitar with the power off. Yes, it's similar, but a little more robust due to the fact that this is the acoustic model with thicker strings. I can play it at home when the TV is on, or in a hotel late at night and not worry about disturbing others. The neck is straight and comfortable, and the quality of workmanship is excellent. No buzzing frets. When plugged into an amp it sounds great! I also use my iRig adapter and my Amplitube app so I can play with my earbuds when I travel. I'm just a novice, but since I got this guitar, I've been able to practice enough to tackle the F chord and I'm working on the B chord. When I'm good enough, I can "join the band" at retreats, etc. when I travel by motorcycle. I'll just take my small practice amp or plug in to their system. More convenient than taking my treasured Taylor every time. I've noticed that this guitar feels different due to the small, flat body and the slippery chrome leg rest. I find myself adjusting it a lot right now on my lap. Maybe I'll get used to it. The good thing is it's so small you can sit in any easy chair or even lie on the couch and play it--probably not a good habit to learn. The fretboard is standard scale but the guitar is shorter, so your left arm isn't extended as far as it normally would be--which is good when learning chords. I would recommend it or buy another one. I'm thinking about buying the electric guitar version too.

Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Acoustic-Electric Travel Guitar:

I love this guitar!! It is small and light enough to bring on my bicycle anywhere. It plays well, it is just a little awkward due to its size. A strap helps a bit. The action feels somewhere between my Strat and a good acoustic. I am suprises how well it stays in tune even after a day out on a bike ride. This guitars defiantly gets me to play more, which is the whole point right?

    Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Acoustic-Electric Travel Guitar:

    Love the portability and love the weight. It is a little awkward without a strap but overall this is a great portable guitar. I think the one risk was buying and paying ahead of time. There was no problem with the product but I did take a chance in purchasing without trying it out.

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Acoustic-Electric Travel Guitar:

      Almost exactly what I wanted. Small form, full scale acoustic guitar, for travel/practice. Fit and finish is pretty good, no issues so far. I like that it is basically full cutaway, so you can more easily use the upper frets without acoustic body interference. You will need a headphone amp of some type as there is no pre-amp built in. The signal is a little noisy, but that could be my preamp. The demos out there on youtube sound fine. Very satisfied with this purchase

        I can sleep with this guitar, and it is still in tune when I grab it in the morning. I can take it to the beach or anywhere easily. I was expecting to replace the electronics, but it sounds so good paired with my Yamaha THR 10C, there is no reason to do so. Don't be turned off by "Piezo electric pickup". It's a good thing. If you are looking for a bare bones guitar that plays nicely, look no further.

        Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Acoustic-Electric Travel Guitar:

        I'll probably have to put some grip tape on the metal bar to help keep it from sliding down my leg. Also, when you plug it up to an amp, you'll have to turn the high knob down to avoid the scratching sound you get when changing notes.

              What a kool toy! Of course, it's trebly with the lightweight. You can fiddle with that with whatever gizmo you have (they all seem to have volume and equalizers). It sounds pretty good straight into a PA speaker and works well when I run it through the pedal panel (reverb, wah and everything else). Balances OK with the wire thingy and it's featherweight with a strap. I'm packing it with my VOX I/O and headphones. Still gotta take the acoustic if I'm going to play for anyone else on the beach :)

                Read about travel nightmares with full size guitars. Decided to give this tiny ax a try. Just tested it out at a small venue gig with surprising results. Don't think anyone noticed much of a difference from my Crafter SA. Need to travel for a destination wedding performance and I'm looking forward to seeing the reaction when I plug this baby in.
