I bought this guitar after much research and deliberation, unsure of whether it would suit my needs or not. When it arrived, I was nothing short of amazed. It was even smaller than I'd imagined (a good thing) but it plays and even sounds like a full-sized guitar when plugged in. I can sling the tiny gig back diagonally across my back, and it's hard to tell that I'm even carrying a guitar! It also carries very well when I'm on my motorcycle. Don't worry: the lap rest is detachable. I never use it. Get yourself a good sling and you'll be golden. This guitar is truly a piece of engineering genius, and definitely worth every penny.

Its a nice product, does what it should. The output jack on my guitar was a little tight for the cabling I used, and somehow the jack wiring broke when I removed it (this was after the second time playing plugged in). Got on the line with them immediately, took them two weeks (well 13 days) to tell me the replacement jack I needed was out of stock. Just in time for a month long trip. Pretty disappointing.

      I'm still not a fan of tuner location but it's so compact, light weight and has great sound, I love playing it. I plan on using it exclusively my next solo gig in Feb. looking forward to audience reaction.

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

        I had one of these 5 years ago but sold it because I found it difficult to play. However, I have just bought another because every travel guitar alternative I've tried since hasn't matched what this offers. This little club is well built and stays in tune after my frequent transpacific trips. I've tried others but they were all either too large, too fragile, or too weird to play (short scales and minis). I came back to this model because I love it's scale length and left hand feel and I find the piezo beautiful sounding when hooked up to my macbook.

        I've adapted to the lack of a body to orient my right arm by grabbing a pillow or rolling up a sweatshirt. Good enough.

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

            I drive alot for work, and will end up with down time when I reach my location. So, I thought a practice guitar would be perfect for me to take along. I wanted something small, portable, yet fully functional to get some solid playing time.

            This guitar fit the bill perfectly. The included gig bag makes this so easy to grab and take with me. It's small size fits easily in the cab of my work truck.

            The guitar itself is a engineering wonder. The neck feels great and it stays in tune very nicely. I don't even bother with the detachable lap rest, but that is a nice feature to have.

            It is very quiet. It really isn't an acoustic at all. It's just like playing an electric without being plugged in. That works fine for me in most of my locations. I can hear it and it's just practice anyhow.

            However, I also bought a Vox Headphone amp. It really sounds great and the pickup puts out a very solid sound. Best part is that little amp fits right into the side pouch of the gig bag as well.

            It's a slightly body heavy, so the neck wants to rise up on me, but just using a strap at all times fixed that issue.

            It is solid wood construction, and feels well made, however, I do feel the guitar is slightly overpriced. I caught it on sale, which helped. But, to be honest, since it fits my needs so perfectly, I feel I'm paying (and happy to do so) for the convenience it provides.

            This is exactly what I was after, and I can't wait to take it with me on an upcoming trip to Alaska.

            Best Uses

            • Airline travel

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

            The compact design allows me to unpack a playable guitar at the end of a flight, which is awesome. The attachable lap rest wasn't really usable to me even after I coated it with tubing so it wouldn't slide, because it still was neck-heavy. If you have to hold the neck up with your left hand, all you can do is strum chords and I am a fingerpicker. What I did was make a cutout of my Telecaster profile from a beautiful piece of 1/4 inch Baltic Birch plywood, and carefully drilled quick-connect inserts into the back of the Ultralight, so as not to interfere with the electronics, etc. on the front. Then I attached the thin back to the guitar with the bridge lined up where the Tele's would be. The result? Feels like a normal guitar, cradles solidly under the right arm, and I can play anything on it! I leave the lap rest at home and just carry an allen key that fits the 'bolts', and the plywood back goes into my suitcase first, under socks and jeans. Assembles in two minutes. It even sounds better! No more being in Cuba or Mexico or Europe with nothing to play! I had to re-work the fret ends though, because they leave them rough in China, apparently.

            • very very light

            • Sound Is A Bit "flat"

            Best Uses

            • Practise

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

            This is the perfect practise guitar. I've been using it with GarageBand on the iPhone (through the cheapest iRig dongle) with minus-one tracks and it's just perfect for practising wherever you are.

            The only problem IMO is the rather flat sound that you get from the bridge pickup. But it's not that bad. If you would like better sound you may wish to check out the other models.

            This guitar is a life-saver. I run the guitar through my i-phone app, Amp-Kit and I can play any setup I would normally play at a studio or at home (different amps and pedals). It is a great guitar to take on the road, and it is built strong to last. Great buy!
