Have you ever found yourself thinking that getting an ultra-portable guitar would have to mean giving up on acoustic? You wouldn't be the first to think it, but the good news is that it's thankfully not the case. Traveler Guitar acoustic guitars are the perfect proof that acoustic sound can come in even the smallest packages. Even better than what they do is the fact that they do it well: you'll be surprised how 'big' the tone from one of these little instruments can be. Need a guitar that you can take anywhere, play anywhere, and that won't make you go without the features you want? You're in the right place to find it.
The first Traveler guitar came out in 1992, and they've been making waves ever since. The first question most guitarists have about travel instruments is "how small is the scale?", but you won't have to ask that here. With careful design, Traveler acoustic guitars manage to pack full scale length into a package that's actually smaller than a lot of the reduced-scale competition. Add on to that the hollow and semi-hollow bodies that make these guitars competent acoustics by any standards, and you're looking at a winning formula for a portable instrument.
In fact, Traveler Guitar is one of the only luthiers that can offer a straight-up acoustic guitar at this size: the AG-105. From there, your options tip the scales further toward electric as you go. Check out the Escape Concert, Escape Mark III and AG-105EQ acoustic-electric guitars if you want the power to plug in while keeping the larger acoustic body. Or, go for the original Escape in steel or nylon-stringed models to scale down to a more compact shape. The smallest models in this section are the Ultra-Light and Pro Series, which are dedicated acoustic-electric designs with piezo pickups for your acoustic guitar amp.
Whether you want the smallest, lightest acoustic-electric model or a hollow-bodied, traditional style yet super-compact instrument, Traveler Guitar acoustic guitars have the right choice for you. They're designed and built with two ideas in mind: that you should be able to take a guitar wherever you go, and that you shouldn't have to compromise to do it. The result is a line of incredibly compact, high-performance instruments that every guitarist should seriously consider picking up.
