I really cannot say this is two stars

By Cheesie

from Richmond, VA

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.

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.

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.

Awesome for what it is!

By Matthew Gorenc

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

Best Uses

    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.

    A really good one for travelers

    By Jonah

    from Bloomington, IN

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

    I bought this guitar because I am tired to ship or buy new guitars when I need to move into another place. As an international student and a guitar player, I can take this guitar wherever I wanna go. After plugging into JAM 96K, it becomes really powerful with multiple sounds. It's very useful and I enjoyed playing this guitar very much. One thing that concerns me is that the top is very light. It sometimes makes me difficult to control the guitar. But I think it is a good one for travelers and those who don't have much space.

    Remember what this is for

    By Alex Scoots

    from Chicago

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

    I l've seen all the comments and reviews some bashing this guitar and others praising it. For me , I love it. I bought it for practicing when bringing my regular guitars are not an option. For instance I have it by my desk at work and often pick it up and get an 1/2 hr or hour proactive in during lunch. I travel with it on airplanes and can sit on a beach and get some practice in it. Is going to sound like a full size guitar? No it's not but with the various amp plugs for headphones you can get very good clean or rocked out distorted sounds and it sounds great. If you're looking for a portable guitar because you can't stand not having it with then I would recommend this guitar. I have it 4 stars because of the chrome extension makes it very slippery to hold but have managed to find a comfort zone that works for me.
