Portability and performance in a compact, modern design.
The Traveler Guitar Speedster Hot Rod is a full 24-¾-inch scale travel guitar featuring a custom Headphone Amplifier with 4 different tones, a dual-rail humbucker and a coil-split switch.
The proprietary In-Body tuning system uses standard tuning machines relocated into the body to create a guitar that has a full-scale neck, yet is substantially shorter than full size electrics. The lack of a headstock and a small, ergonomic body allow the guitar to be 28% shorter and 51% lighter than a full-size electric, all while preserving the same full-scale playing experience you’re used to.
The guitar features active electronics with headphone amplifier built-in, allowing you to practice privately. Plug in headphones or your favorite amp and cycle through clean, boost, overdrive and distortion tones using the custom tap-pot. The dual-rail humbucker has a coil-split switch, which allows for even more sonic versatility by giving you humbucker gain or single coil clean all in one pickup.
In addition, the Speedster Hot Rod's headphone amp is loaded with an aux-in jack so you can play along with your favorite tracks while listening through headphones or your favorite amp. The Upper Arm Support detaches for travel, and the whole package fits neatly inside its included Gig Bag, weighs just 4-pounds and 12-ounces, and stows easily in airline overhead compartments.
