A travel guitar for the serious electric guitar player.
The Traveler EG-1 Vintage Gold is a full-scale electric guitar featuring a compact single-cutaway body shape that provides vintage looks and modern comfort to the traveling guitarist. With crown inlays, gold bell knobs, a chrome-covered humbucker with cream pickup ring and its Vintage Gold finish, this travel guitar looks and feels like a travel-sized version of a timeless instrument. In addition, it is the first guitar in Traveler's EG-1 family to feature a 24-3/4" scale length.
Weighing in at just 4 pounds and measuring only 28 5/8" long, the EG-1 electric guitar is an ideal carry-on guitar that stows easily in airline overhead compartments. The EG-1's built-in Pocket RockIt headphone amp is custom-designed to produce classic clean and distortion sounds through headphones or when plugged into an amplifier. Players can also go passive into their amp of choice. The Traveler EG-1's onboard electronics include a 1/8" AUX IN jack so players can jam with tracks from an external device such as an MP3 or CD player.
The Traveler EG-1 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as a mahogany body and neck, ebonized rosewood fretboard, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes deluxe gig bag and comes standard with D'Addario EXL-110 strings.

Comments about Traveler Guitar EG-1 Vintage Electric Guitar:
I needed a good practice guitar that I can travel with or play quietly in the middle of the night, and this fits the bill. The guitar (string and fingerboard wise) is full size. The body is small making the guitar look like a Guitar Hero guitar for Xbox, but it is a real guitar. It takes some time getting used to the smaller body, as the location of the headphone jack is close to where you support the guitar on your thigh. This Guitar is not a Stratocaster or Les Paul. The action may be a tad high for some. It has one humbucker pick up, so not that much tone flexibility. The EG-2 has two single pick ups, but in both cases that is still less than the tow humbuckers on a Les Paul or the three Singles on a Startocaster. The built in amp works with the headphones and has two settings: 1) Clean and 2) Distorted. The distortion setting may fall short of the expectations of many, but the built in amp is for practice on the go and not sound effects. I paired it with the Yamaha THR5 practice amp, and got a lot more fun sounds from this small guitar. My greatest joy is practicing in the middle of the night without getting complaints from the neighbors or my wife. Also, Kudos to Musician's Friend - they offered this guitar as an open box item in mint condition and it was as good as new (even the box was in mint condition).
