I purchased the Ultra-Light mainly because I travel for a living and needed something to keep my practice time while in hotels. For that, it certainly meets the need. Fit and finish were excellent and the action/set-up were just right for me. Easy to tune with an electronic tuner. However, for a beginner the Ultra-Light's very narrow body presented a challenge, and I never felt comfortable with positioning. A strap helps, but the dual purpose strap-pin/plug-in makes fitting a strap a bit of a task. I traded my Ultra-Light for a Traveler Escape Original and would recommend that model for beginners over the Ultra-Light.

Spend the money get the better instrument.

Returned this one and got the higher quality Les Paul shaped traveler with the humbucker. This guitar has a weird balance to it, though pretty well made. I found it hard to play.

Ideal travel guitar

By Robert

Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

I travel frequently for work and this is a great guitar to bring with me. Its light, compact size is ideal for traveling and it plays well. It took a little getting used to playing on such a light weight guitar but it was well worth it as I can now play on the road.

    Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar. I travel a lot overseas and got this since I missed practicing while on the road. Works like a charm and fits into my suitcase. I have been practicing a ton since I have it, great to keep me busy when jetlag hits in the middle of the night. Quality and tone are excellent, I have a headphone amp with me but it even sounds great unplugged. Highly recommend it.

    Traveller's Best Friend

    By TOM KING

    from near Toledo, OH

    Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

    I was a little unsure about purchaing this at first. I thought that this could possibly be the worst investment, but absolutely want to have something to take on an extended trip overseas. My main concern was that the action might be terrible. After just a couple of days I feel the investment paid off! The quality of the instrument is impressive for the price. I was immediately comfortable with the size and feel with and without the detachable lap rest frame. I do find that the lap rest frame does make the instrument a bit more well-balanced when standing and playing. For the most part I intend to play sitting down on an airplane and probably won't even use this, opting instead to rest the tail of the guitar against the side of my thigh. Not having a volume or tone knob doesn't bother me. I plan on using a Digitech RP300 pedal which has more than enough options to make any small adjustments. Bottom line: I would consider using this even when I am not travelling.

    Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

    This is a brilliant design and it plays very well, the only addition I would make is a volume and tone control circuit. I was not expecting great tone and this guitar is very bright, which would suit a shredder more than a blues player like me. My only regret is that I didn't buy it a month ago before traveling to Mexico.
    I'm very impressed with the neck. It plays great for an inexpensive nstrument. Add volume & tone control and its 5 stars!

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

      I'm often parked beside the highway for hours at a time. I can play the Traveler while sitting behind the wheel. That gives me lots of practice time not possible with a full sized guitar. The full scale neck means no difference in the feel when I go back to my Taylor or Strat.

      Excellent action and sound for a traveler - a few quirks

      By Michael Bek

      from Laguna Niguel, CA

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

      Bought the ultra-light electric as I didn't want additional weight from an attached wood lap rest. Tried several competitors (Hofner, Martin, Washburn, etc.) but really liked the size to put into my backpack (with neck sticking out) for weekly travel on planes coupled with a roll-aboard. Neck action and sound quality from the humbucker pickup is really good for this guitar (warmer than some of my regular full size guitars. The weight balance between the fretboard and body is ok - plays easier with a strap than with the metal lap rest. Stays in tune well despite lots of bends. Wish they had countersunk the four screws on the back connecting the tuning peg mount to the body - snagged one of my shirts - solved that with some felt strips. Overall, pretty impressed with this little package.

      Small, Light

      By Michael McCabe

      from Branson, MO

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Ultra-Light Electric Guitar:

      Both the Pro and Con... Small and Light. It is all neck in the weight, but easy to adjust to. No volume or tone control, but the higher priced models have those added features. I use my iPhone to connect with it, and small headphones. Standard 1/4 inch output and standard strap pins, not sure what that other review was talking about... I spend 2 or 3 days a week in a hotel. This allows me to easily carry a Full Length guitar, full sized fingerboard with me, at only 28 inches and 3 pounds. This is a practice instrument. Very portable.

          I travel often and often miss my guitar. I have been playing for over 20 years. I have top of the line guitars. The Ultra-Light Electric Guitar is excellent for traveling and a great value for the money. Clearly not for a live jam event.I use mine with my Ipad and the Apogee JAM Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac.
          Try it out, you wont be disappointed.
