The perfect acoustic traveling companion.

The Wechter 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 1735 guitar features a solid spruce top and lacewood back and sides, tortoise shell binding, and an abalone rosette. 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 including the Travel guitar 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. All Wechter guitars have a lifetime warranty.

Abe Wechter has been designing and building guitars for 30 years and over the course of his career, Abe designed and built handmade guitars for artists like John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, John Denver, Earl Klugh, B B King, Steve Howe, Jonas Hellborg and many other fine players.

I did an fairly extensive search of the "travel" model guitars available, and the Wechter 1735 is by far the best I've seen.I had tried the Wechter 1730, but found the voice of the 1735 to be significantly superior: richer, fuller, less tinny or nasal sounding.And it is even sweeter through my Hartke AC 75 acoustic amp.It is a little larger than the Baby Taylor, but the sound quality and ease of playing make it the clear winner. The scale length of the Wechter is only .55 inches longer than the Baby Taylor, but that little bit makes for a much easier playing instrument.I also own a Baby Taylor, but if I had to part with one, it would not be the Wechter! And the Wechter is much prettier visually, as well.One guitar I have not tried is the Wechter 1720, mahogany version, which might be worth considering.And if you are looking for a beginners guitar for a kid, this one would be the most inspiring to play, and pleasing to display, of the "travel" models I've seen.
