    Attention to detail and fine craftsmanship set Wechter guitars apart.

    The Wechter 1710 Acoustic-Electric Travel Guitar has tone and volume that belies its short scale and compact size. Like its bigger brothers, the 1710 features a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides. 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. The 1710 travel guitar has 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. Wechter guitars is committed to continue to deliver innovation, quality and value, at prices working musicians can afford.
