Great travel guitar

By jeober

from Michigan

This is a well thought out travel guitar. Good quality and with nice tote bag. Very accurate intonation is possible all over neck and the frets were set up quite level. Neck bow was just barely there with minimal truss rod tension using 10-46 strings. I now play this guitar more than my vintage Tele as it just so handy to pick up. I also like the flatter 12" radius neck and adj. string spacing bridge set to about 2" E-e .The 9v battery was DOA and I replaced the 0 fret nut with a one using a constant string gap made from aluminum. The tuning does have some friction as the strings wrap 180^ around the bottom using plastic pulleys, so one best tunes by tugging out the string tension and then tuning up to pitch.String changing is harder since one needs hands at both front and back of guitar. But you know I really like the tuners tucked away and not having the head stock out there.Overall a surprisingly good guitar, a great travel package, and a terrific value.


Nice travel guitar

I bought one of the ?A? grade Traveler Escape guitars in trans black. I called the Traveler Guitar and talked to Corey before purchasing it to confirm that the only difference between ?A? and ?AAA? is the grade of the flame maple veneer top of the guitar. He confirmed it is.1) The guitar I received has no noticeable ?flame? whatsoever to the top. If the flame maple top is a big deal to you, don?t buy this guitar. You will be disappointed.2) The set up out of the box was the WORST I have ever seen in my 35 years of playing and with dozens of guitars passing through my hands. The strings were very unevenly spaced. The E strings did not come close to aligning with the pickups. I ended up removing the strings and doing a full setup on the bridge and saddles. Whoever assembled the one I got obviously does not play! I suspect that there was no QA inspection from the time the instrument left China (or before) until it reached my doorstep.3) The gig bag that I got does NOT look like the one pictured on the Traveler Guitar website. It is all black, not 2-tone, and does not have the same detail as the one pictured.4) The active electrics have only 3 setting, off/cln/dst and a lot of hiss on ?dst?. No way to adjust the distortion. It?s either on or it?s off. I?ve had a ?Pocket Rock-it? before and was not impressed. I?m still not.That said, this is a fun little guitar for when you can?t take your favorite full size one with you. Not worth the price though.

I have own this guitar for two weeks now, and this little guitar has a BIG sound. I work over sea's on a Oil Rig, and this is the best guitar sound and size for travel. The tones are great, and the effects are good. I have been playing for 30 years, and I enjoy having a guitar that is easy for travel and has some Kick A** sound. I would like to see a line of amps that Traveler Guitar's have. Great investment.

I have tried two travel guitars to include the little taylor and the martin travel guitar and have not liked the feel or sound of either. So I went electric and wow this little thing rocks. Built in headset plug or standard amp plug in and the humbucker will stand with the best plus a switch that adds distortion and a nice gig bag. You can't beat this quality or price.
