I got my Traveler when they first came out. The stethophone hurts my ears (due to pressure not volume). The electronics have got a few crackles and pops due to wiggly wires and the plastic ring around the pickup has a piece that cracked and broke off (still works fine tho). BUT I'd buy another one in a heartbeat if something happened to mine. The full scale/string length is one of a kind for an axe that is so small and plays great. It is truely a God-Send for guitar players that travel. I do electronic repairs on ships and have taken my Traveler guitar around the world with me 3 times (and all over the US). Airport security always asks what it is, they're amazed and I've never had a problem carrying it. Highly recommended!

I bought this guitar while traveling in the US. Worked great.

After returning home I finally plugged it in to an amp to discover that the 1/4" output jack doesn't work. Although there is a licensed distributor and repair dealer in the country I live, Travel Guitar is unwilling to pick up the cost of repair and have asked me to ship it back to the US - which would cost me enough to be prohibitive. Yeah, the repair isn't complicated and I can easily get it done, but it would be nice to have Travel Guitar stand by the quality of their products. The guitar was 1 week old by the time I returned home.

It's the principle of it.

Great But It Needs An Arm Rest, Here's How

Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Ok, go to Michael's Crafts (hope you have their 40 or 50% off coupon. Go to their naked/bare wood section. Look for a Oval Basswood Plaque, 12 x 16" by Walnut Hollow it matches the guitar exactly. Take it home and experiment with it on your lap with the travel guitar on top. What you want it to use the guitar's leg rest but the oval plaque as an arm rest. On the back of the guitar is a round nut that sticks out. Make a pen mark on the wood around the nut. Now drill just deep enough to allow the nut to go into the wood, you don't have drill all the way through it. Then use industrial strength velcro on the back of the guitar and the front of the plaque, attach together. Now you have a travel guitar that feel much more like a full acoustic guitar but you can still take it apart for travel--a winner!

      Overall a great buy, it will last for years and is a great way to take your music with you.
      I have had this guitar for years and it has been on hundreds of planes with me. the padded case is great and it has survived very well. it is small enough that you can put it in a backpack with the neck sticking out so if you go thru airports it can count as one piece. I tend to play with headphones and the sound is great, but can also rock with an amp. you will not be dissapointed!

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Just pulled this out of the box and can't say enough great things about this mini-hybrid guitar. It is so different, but plays amazing. I A/B'd it to a Bose Compact for acoustic sound and an Orange Tiny Terror with 12" cab in the other. OMG!! This is great. I gig regularly with a Breedlove D25 and Taylor T5 and this little Traveler Pro Series A/E makes me reconsider my rig. Granted, the ergonomics are different and you have to get adjusted to playing with no arm rest, but man, I just couldn't put it down. And it's so light!! Also, as others have mentioned, great for practicing with no amp. Definitely check this out....its a keeper!

      Perfect travel guitar

      By Bernard H

      from Chicago

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I own it for almost a year. It allows to reherse in a room without annoying the family or when traveling as it can be kept in cabin or packed in a car. The design is quite tough and can be packed with other luggage with no fear, the regular size of the neck is very convenient. I Highly recommend it as a travel guitar or second guitar for rehersing when promiscuity is an issue.

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I am a national sales manager and I do lots of travel across the U.S. Spending many nights in hotels can get old real fast. This guitar is my buddy, I pack a small set of head phones, the Korg Tone Works PX4 and a small MP3 player and I have a whole band in a little backpack. It's size is amazing.Every now and then I get seated in an empty row on a plane and I get to play on the flight. Oh, and it is great to see the reaction of security when you place this thing on the x-ray belt, some scan it more than once - just look at the gig bag :)Like one of the other writers I was also thinking of changing the single coil for a hot rails. (If you do before me, let me know how it sounds)Only issue I have is the selector switch is broken, easy fix. Other than that, it's a good guitar for the money.

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is good for traveling. The only problem is that the string wrap around behind the pickup and the vibrate when you play and make a high pitched buzz. The knobs also come off easily but that might be because mine is old. It sounds good with a marshall amp and Boss MT-2 pedal but you can get the same sound from a Dean Evo XM.ONLY BUY THIS FOR TRAVELING!!

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I bought it because I thought it was cool and thought it would be a great companion. But I use it for more. It sounds great. A little hollow and twangy but with a good eq it sounds great. The electric pickup does it's job well. The only draw backs are: It's somewhat annoying to tune. The stethoscope headphones do get a bit uncomfortable. When you play standing up there is no place for your arm to rest whilestrumming. These drawbacks are a small price to pay for the great axe this is.

      Good little guitar!

      By D. Ethan B.

      from Portland, OR

      Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Good little guitar, but I don't think it deserves the high ratings I've seen in these reviews.I take this guitar to work with me (as a police officer) and practice my guitar between calls in my cruiser. I've taken this little guitar around the western side of the country, Washington to Texas and every state in between! It's nice and compact, gives a good sound, and plays pretty easily. The full fretboard is nice in such a small package and the design I think is pretty ingenious!I generally play the guitar without the stethoscope, as it hurts my ears (the pressure from the spring) when traveling, and at home, of course, I plug it in. It's an awesome little practice guitar and serves its purpose well!I don't like the position of the tuners, although I don't know where else I'd put them. When tuning the E Strings I tend to bump them when zoning in on a good tune having to restrum several times to get it tuned. I've also found this particular one falls out of tune quicker than other guitars.If you are looking for a great little travel guitar, I'd recommend this one, but it will never replace a comparably priced full sized guitar.

        Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        If you want to teach your 10 year old child guitar, this is a FANTASTIC small guitar to teach a serious young learner. The action is low and very easy to play for weak fingers. Know your child, though, my 10 year old is responsible enough not to carelessly knock it around. I also play both ukulele and guitar. I rarely get any practice because I have to shlep both instruments. With this nifty travel guitar, I can just bring one small instrument. I simply capo the 5th fret and whammo, it's a ukulele (just use the bottom 4 strings). I can sit shotgun passenger seat and the neck does not hit the driver. I can play now both ukulele and guitar in the shotgun passenger seat. MIND BLOWN. Stays in tune. Extremely modular to fit lots of different configurations (lap rest, arm rest, or completely stripped down to lightest weight configuration). There is no battery compartment inside the guitar because batteries are NOT NEEDED for this guitar. You get a NICE believable acoustic sound when you plug it into a Roland Microcube (2Watt amp, single 5" speaker, 9.5 x 6.5 x 8.5 in) and turn the Roland amp dial to "acoustic" setting. The Roland amp requires batteries/AC charger, but the guitar itself does not need batteries. Of course the electric sound is killer as well! If you take off the lap rest and plug it into the Roland Amp, you still get a nice electric sound. No worry about baggage handling damage as this is small enough to carryon the plane. Sure wish they sold a hard case for this. But I guess a work around would be to buy a small rifle gun case if you want to store this in a hard case. All in all, a TERRIFIC way to get more practice instead of twiddling your thumbs in the shotgun passenger seat!!!

        The only one to travel with.

        By Darchangel

        from Raleigh, NC

        Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I've had one of these guitars for four years and have been delighted at when and where I can play. Having spent way too many hours in airports and on airplanes with nothing better to do, I bought one of these guitars and have played it just about everywhere. I have 3 complaints are short and in no way deter my enthusiasm about the guitar.(1) The stethophone hurts your ears if you play for a long time at one sitting. (2) It requires more work than average to change the strings.(3) It requires more frequent tuning.I resolved complaint (1) by picking up a Korg Pandora PX-3 (they now have the PX-4, but I prefer the PX-3). This allowed me to play through an small, portable effect processor and into headphones which never hurt my ears. Complaints (2) and (3) relate to the way the guitar is strung. Guitar strings wrap around rubber cyclinders at the butt and fasten on the back of the body. Stringing through the channel on the back and into the tuners has always been a challenge for me, but this design feature is also directly responsible for it's small size and subsequent portability while using standard guitar strings. These are much bigger advantages in my book. The rubber cylinders at the base make it difficult to balance tension between the cylinders and the tuners and between the cylinder and the end of the fretboard (note: the strings are strung "backwards" from standard guitars). The difference in tension requires more adjusting and subsequently more tuning. Again, if your goal is to gig, probably not the guitar for you due to the tuning issues. But if you just want to play anywhere and everywhere -- I've played in cars, in airports, on airplanes, and just about anywhere I had a mind to do so -- this guitar has no peers. I highly recommend picking up a portable effect processor like the Korg PX-3 when you do. You'll be glad you did.

        The quiet guitar that speaks so loudly

        from Geneva, NY

        Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is so compact that you almost feel guilty bringing it to practice sessions. When you plug it in, though, it's versatility and playability as either an electric or wired acoustic guitar becomes instantly appreciated.The one thing I wish this guitar had, though, is a place to rest my picking arm on. This becomes less of an issue when I strap it on and stand up to play.

        There is no substitute for this guitar. If something happened to it, I would replace it immediately. I can practice any where with the "stethophone" without disturbing anyone. The stewardess doesn't even ask me to shut it off since there's no electricity involved.

        Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I got to spending a few hours with this miraculously designed instrument tonight.Considering what you think you are going to get with a stethoscope headset, yet two pickups, and all for this price, this is an amazing guitar.Even when plugged into a Marshall amp, the guitar naturally wants to revert to a somewhat shallow acoustic sound. However, a few quick turns on the EQ settings will just about make it as dirty as your Les Paul if you like. I haven't even tried it with effects yet.The reasons for falling in love with this guitar are for one, sound-wise, it is certainly no slouch, secondly, how would you like to have a full scale neck with (OK weird) stethoscope phones any time you want? Take it anywhere and get your practice time in. Cars, airplanes, whatever, you always have it with you, and you won't bother people except curious people wanting to know what it is.Now what this guitar is not, is that it is neither your first electric, nor your first acoustic. But if you love playing and wish you had a full scale guitar that you could take with you wherever you go, this is the guitar for you. Make no mistake. In fact, you may buy this guitar and promote it to number one in your arsenal because it can do double duty as an acoustic or electric when plugged in.I'm just waiting for my Pignose Hog-20 to come in with rechargeable batteries, and then the parks become mine!

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Traveler Guitar Pro Series Travel Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I absolutely love this "Traveler Pro" guitar. It is everything I wanted in a compact guitar. It's good enough to use during guitar teaching, and I've even used it on stage a couple of times. The intonation is GREAT even though the size is small. The NECK is standard size which allows for perfect intonation. The single coil electric pick-up is EXTREMELY WEAK, and the "acoustic" bridge pick-up is actually louder, and so I use it more often. I would DEFINITELY classify this as an "acoustic grade" guitar as opposed to electric. It comes with acoustic strings. I'm planning on getting the "Speedster" electric next. I'm waiting until it comes with a humbucker though. I hear there is a humbucker version coming out. I may still buy a "Hot Rail" humbucker for the "Traveler Pro", but I wonder about feedback, and body resonance. The "Stethaphone" is an absolutely worthless add-on in my humble opinion. It hurts my ears and is totally uncomfortable. If I'm going to practice "quietly", I'll just practice completely unplugged, otherwise, you might as well just plug the thing into an amp or other headphone pre-amp. The only "flaw" on my Traveler is that the thumb screw that holds the "extra arm" on keeps loosening up on its own. There is some play in the shape match-up between that arm and the body of the guitar which makes it "wiggle" a bit, and gradually loosen. I have to tighten it about every 15 minutes or so, but that's NO PROBLEM...just a quick turn of your thumb. All-in-all, I wouldn't trade it for the world, and I want to eventually buy the rest of the Traveler line ASAP. They are THAT good (the necks are GREAT!). Right now, I'm planning on getting the Speedster REALLY soon...I play this guitar a minimum of about 4 hours a day, and it can TAKE IT!
