Warm, intimate tone that's perfect for singer-songwriters.

The Wechter 1720 Acoustic-Electric Travel Guitar has tone and volume that belies its short scale and compact size. Attention to detail and fine craftsmanship set Wechter guitars apart. The 1720 guitar features a solid mahogany top and mahogany back and sides for a unique look and a soft, mellow tone ” great for singers. Its smaller size makes it an ideal travel instrument and is also great for littler players. The built-in preamp features a 3-band EQ that adds to the versatility of this instrument. Wechter travel guitars are well made, are a good value, and are fun to play!

All Wechter guitars undergo a meticulous final setup where they install brand new premium quality coated light gauge strings, adjust the action, adjust the nut, trussrod, saddle, file frets if necessary, clean the fingerboard and bridge, polish and repack - every guitar, every time, so that Wechter knows you are getting a guitar that will play the best right out of the box. This Wechter Travel Guitar has a lifetime warranty.

Nice little guitar!

By Brenda Sue

from Michigan's Upper Peninsula

My first online guitar order and I love it. A very rich sounding guitar, and beautiful to look at. A friend who is a multi-talented musician had nothing but good things to say about this instrument. The set up was good right out of the box. It will get a lot of use around the campfire this summer.
