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

    I could not hold the guitar sturdy enough to control the neck, for playing classical music. There was no top body part to this guitar to I could not easily push the guitar against me and gain leverage to hold the neck in a steady location. I returned the guitar because it was not enjoyable to play using picking, with this defect. The guitar might be fine for chords only, like an electric guitar, but definitely not for classical music. Other silent guitars have a top piece, so I will buy one of those instead.

    Ultra-Light nylon travel guitar

    By Leonard Perrone

    from Portland, OR

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

    This instrument is what it says it is: a full-size well-made neck for travel and silent practice. It is absolutely as small as it can be and still work. Learning to hold the instrument can take some getting used to. Standing, with a strap, is no problem. Seated, on the right leg ("folk position"), the supplied clip-in wireform works well. It is less useful in the classical position. The pickup works well. No, it doesn't sound like a fine classical guitar, but you really didn't expect that, did you? The supplied soft case is well-made, easily holds the instrument with strap attached, has a shoulder strap and hand strap, and a generous pocket to hold the wireform, several sets of strings, tuner, string winder, small headphone amp, ham sandwich, etc. All in all, great for motorcycle trips, ar playing at 3 AM without disturbing sleepers.

    Awesome for what it is!

    By Matthew Gorenc

    from Nashville TN

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

    Please do not compare this to a soloette or an aria... This guitar is not meant to compete with those guys. These are not comparable for a couple reasons, but namely because of the price difference. If you are in the market for an inexpensive compact travel guitar for practice, then look no further. While it doesn't feel like your typical classical, it wil definitely keep you happy on the road. It's true there are balance issues and you have to find that sweet spot to straddle, and tuning it takes some practice but none of these issues bother me too much (but it is why I gave it 4/5). To really get the most out of it, buy a Korg PX4D effects processor... Put out on preset 72 and I promise you'll be a happy camper. Plus you can fit it (along with a capo, a 3' cable, some buds, spare batteries, and some spare strings) in the small gig bag pocket. Order one to try it out and you won't reget it... You can always return it and get your aria or soloette.. but you won't. I take mine everywhere... Literally

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

    this guitar absolutly sucks. if you want a good travel guitar get an aria sinsonido. its way smaller, has a built in preamp for headphones, sounds 1000 times better, and is the only travel guitar that looks good.

    Traveler Guitar Ultra Light Nylon Acoustic-Electric Guitar

    By Clay

    from Madison, WI

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

    I've had this guitar for almost a year now. I originally bought it to use while playing in the orchestra for the local community theater. Space is cramped and a full size acoustic is at too much risk of damage in the tight quarters. The guitar is extremely basic. No volume or tone controls at all, which is OK for me because I use external EQ with my acoustics. I get surprisingly good tone through my setup. It has been a lot of fun seeing the reactions of people when they find out they weren't hearing an acoustic guitar. The quality of this guitar has been good. It has held up well. The frets are smooth and the neck is straight. I can play a very high volume without feedback. It took awhile to get used to the small size and light weight, but now I don't give it a second thought. One thing I had to change, though, was the saddle. The original grooved saddle made it VERY difficult to tune. After I replaced the saddle with a smooth one and the tuning problems were resolved. I gave this a rating of 4 because it does what it was designed to do and is put together well. I'm pushing this product beyond its intended use, but it has worked well in performance situations. Really, the only problem was the saddle, which has been resolved. The lack of tone control is fine with me. A volume control would be handy, though.

    I really cannot say this is two stars

    By Cheesie

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

    There is nothing comparable on the market when it comes to size. However, I would recommend the Yamaha Silent Guitar if you are traveling and need a practice nylon guitar. The shortened scale and feel are awful. Tone is not good. Yes, it is very light-weight.

    I have the old escape nylon, same thing older model, I've had it 4 years and it's been great although I had the wiring re-done because it was buzzing. Now it's perfect.
