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.

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

    It plays like a full sized guitar and fits in a suitcase for travel. Nice. It's well set up as it came.
    As the other reviewers noted, use a guitar strap and use the metal frame thing if you need/want it.

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

      I had to copy an earlier review and edit because he said almost exactly what I would have said:
      I travel a lot 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 under the back seat of my 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. I also carry a Snark and a field recorder.

      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.

            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.
