        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.

        The perfect practise guitar

        By JazzGuitarist

        from Tel Aviv

        Pros

        • Can Carry Unto Airplane
        • Extremely lightweight
        • very very light

        Cons

        • 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.

        • Great action
        • Light Weight
        • Versatile

        Cons

        • Sometimes Awkward To Play

        Best Uses

        • On the road

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

        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!

        Guitar in Hawaii

        Pros

          Cons

          • Light Portable Feel

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

            Brought guitar on multiple flights to Hawaii and stowed in carryon overhead compartment without issue. Strap to your back and take it anywhere! Neck has good feel and low action. Sometimes it's challenging to find best sitting position, but I would buy it if you can't be without your axe on a trip.

            Oh, sweet mystery of life...

            By The Right Hand

            from Santa Barbara, CA

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

            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.
